Peralta Trails is a suburb gated community of Gold Canyon, Arizona east on Highway 60. The community was developed by Del Webb under the name of Desert Glory and is an all age community. The amenities have been simplified to allow for more open desert land and common area between areas where homes have been constructed. The development includes a community pool, community center with fitness equipment and cozy library. (But see note below, these amenities are not available to every homeowner.)
Hiking and walking trails are in abundance and are accessible right from walking outside one’s front door. Golf courses are nearby.
There is not a single street light in the community which makes for some terrific star watching evenings from one’s own yard.
Peralta Trails Elementary school is located right in the community- here is a link to information about it.
(IMPORTANT – Please note, the Peralta Trails community was built in three phases. Phase One does not have rights to use the swimming pool and community club house. Only some of the homes in Phase Two, plus the homes in Phase Three have these privileges. This is something to be sure to check if you are planning to buy a home in the Peralta Trails community. Be sure to find out if your home will have the pool , fitness center and library rights so you are not disappointed once you own the home – if these things are important to you.
Note also that whether a Phase Two home has pool and community clubhouse rights is dependent upon the actual lot number. Check with the Peralta HOA office, or your Realtor, to help you determine if your home will have pool and clubhouse rights.)
Note — update as of Oct 2017 — there is a new home development in the early stages of planning and development that will be added to the open land near Peralta Trails. As of this date there are not yet any models or floor plans, but the infrastructure is being put into place. There will be approximately 900 new homes to be added and will be immediately adjacent to Peralta Trails. The development will have a different name other than Peralta Trails)
