The Nature of Living at Dove Mountain
Bordered by protected lands and perched in a spectacular high desert setting, Dove Mountain is a haven for those who relish the tranquility and beauty of nature. Unlike many resort communities, Dove Mountain embraces the unspoiled beauty of its surroundings, making it a truly enchanting place to call home.
Brimming with Life
If the word “desert” conjures visions of barren terrain, think again. The Sonoran Desert landscape rivals that of any other terrestrial ecoregion on the planet. In fact, nearly all of Earth’s biomes are represented, contributing to the Sonoran Desert’s status as the most biologically diverse desert in North America.
With such a diversity of habitat, Southern Arizona is home to more than 350 species of birds, 130 mammal species, over 100 reptile species and thousands of distinct native plants. This makes for thrilling wildlife sightings and outstanding birdwatching—whether from a Saguaro-studded trail or the peace of your patio. If you’re lucky, you may even catch a glimpse of a majestic but reclusive bobcat or mountain lion moving across the desert peaks.
Year-Round Outdoor Living
To make the most of such a spectacular setting, Dove Mountain homes are specifically designed with open sightlines to bring the outdoors in. But exquisite views aren’t just for enjoying from a window—endless trails, world-class recreational amenities and great weather beckon, inviting residents to embrace the desert’s magnificent terrain while engaging in their favorite fitness pursuits.
Put on your hiking boots to find peace in the rustle of desert breezes and the occasional calls of native birds. Dog-friendly nature trails meander through the community and into the adjoining Tortolita Preserve and Tortolita Mountain Park, providing an opportunity for daily walks and invigorating hikes—as well as biking and horseback riding. Looking to socialize while enjoying the great outdoors? Join a hiking club or sign up for Marana Parks & Recreation’s guided recreational activities. You can also choose your own adventure with Dove Mountain’s online trail map, offering options for all skill levels.
The community is also a paradise for outdoor sport enthusiasts, who revel in activities like golf, swimming and pickleball under wide blue skies. Join friends on the course at one of three world-class clubs or head to The Gallery Sports Club to enjoy outdoor yoga classes, an Olympic size pool, tennis, pickleball and much more.
Spectacles of Nature
At the end of each day, take a moment to sit, reflect and take in the show as the sun sinks below the horizon, painting the sky with jaw-dropping displays of color. Thanks to our region’s ideal climate conditions and our community’s elevated vantage point, Dove Mountain residents are treated to mesmerizing sunrises and sunsets that transform our sky with vibrant hues ranging from fiery reds and oranges to soft purples and pinks.
A Truly Harmonious Lifestyle
Dove Mountain beautifully blends luxury and outdoor living, offering exceptional homes and amenities against the backdrop of the Sonoran Desert’s singular beauty. Though the community feels like a world apart, fine dining, shopping, and Tucson’s vibrant cultural scene are all just minutes away, inviting residents to savor the best of both worlds.
