Take a sunset Private Jeep Tour up Four Peaks to watch the sun go down and the moon rise at nearly 7,000 feet in elevation. The trail offers pristine views of the Mazatzal Mountains and Roosevelt Lake, with the stunning mountains of the Salome Wilderness as its backdrop. During this sunset trip, we will travel up the front side of Four Peaks, departing from Fountain Hills or your hotel. At the top, we will set up a table and chairs for dinner and enjoy the sunset views. We will then travel back down the same way to view the amazing city lights as darkness overtakes the light. Having some clouds in the sky makes for perfect sunset conditions as the light reflects off the clouds in brilliant colors.

About Four Peaks
Four Peaks is a prominent landmark on the eastern skyline of Phoenix. Part of the Mazatzal Mountains, it is located in the Four Peaks Wilderness in the Tonto National Forest, 40 miles (64 km) east-northeast of Phoenix. In winter, Four Peaks offers much of the Phoenix metro area a view of snow-covered peaks. Four Peaks is also the site of an the rarest amethyst mine in the world. The name Four Peaks is a reference to the four distinct peaks of a north–south ridge forming the Massif's summit. The northernmost peak is named Brown's Peak and is the tallest of the four at 7,659 feet (2,334 m). It is the highest point in all of Maricopa County.
