Since 1983

Founded in 1983, as a Scottsdale, Arizona print publication, A Peek at the Peak‘s logo is a stylized outline of Pinnacle Peak, north Scottsdale’s most distinctive mountain. The Peak has been a distinguishing part of the Pinnacle Peak and Desert Foothills community for more than three decades. By and for that community, its content focuses on North Scottsdale, Carefree, Cave Creek, Rio Verde, and northern Phoenix areas.  We live in a rapidly changing and expanding community. This site, combined with our email newsletter and social media links, enables us to get more information, to more readers, in less time.  And, readers can easily get involved by submitting comments and article. Our members, sponsors, and donors also benefit from the exposure provided by this site, and A Peek at the Peak Newsletter, which is emailed to subscribers twice a month, to alert them of special events, issues, and monthly A Peek at the Peak magazine updates.
