Legend Trail, located in the high Sonoran Desert near the north boundary of Scottsdale, is a low-density master-planned golf community set around Legend Trail Golf Club. The community covers about 640 acres – with about half of the land devoted to open space. The gently sloping terrain affords breathtaking views of the McDowell Mountains, Pinnacle Peak and Black Mountain. Biking and walking trails wind throughout the community.
There are 824 homes in Legend Trail, including 36 condominium units. Homes for sale range in size from 1,500 to 5,500 square feet. Many of the homes have golf course views, and some are custom homes. There are 8 separate neighborhoods within the community, and several of them are gated. The architecture styles lean toward Mediterranean and Pueblo with prominent use of stonework.
Legend Trail Golf Club
Legend Trail Golf Club, a scenic, daily fee golf course, was designed by Rees Jones and offers preferred rates for Legend Trail residents. The course also offers a John Jacobs Golf School, where you can learn to play or fine-tune your skills. The well-manicured course has 4 sets of tees, allowing players of every skill level to be challenged. The “Long Trail” plays at a distance of 6,845 yards; you’ll have to bring your “A” game to score well from these tees. The “Short Trail” plays at 5,000 yards. The Cantina at Legend Trail serves mouthwatering Southwestern and Mexican cuisine – you can enjoy the ambience inside or dine outside on the patio and enjoy the view. Separate from the Golf Club and for residents only is a 10,000 square foot clubhouse with a work-out area, 2 lighted tennis courts, 2 pools, and a spa.
Legend Trail is part of the Cave Creek Unified School District, an “A-rated” school district. Students attend Desert Sun Academy, Sonoran Trails Middle School and Cactus Shadows High School.
