is the most northeasterly suburb of Phoenix, adjoining Hwy 87 at the edge of the Tonto National Forest
and the Goldfield Mountains. The land is hereabouts is hilly, split into thin mesas and branched canyons, and the many upscale residences in town are built along the ridges, giving fine views over the surrounding desert. Fountain Hills is bordered to the east by Fort McDowell Indian Reservation
along the Verde River, to the south by the Salt River Indian Reservation
, and to the north by McDowell Mountain Regional Park
, which contains over 50 miles of scenic hiking trails.
Most of the limited facilities in town, including a small shopping center, are near the south end of Shea Blvd, just off Hwy 87; the next nearest locations are a ten mile drive away across open desert, at the north edge of Scottsdale
