Enchanted Trail (Sendero Encantado) is a free annual, bilingual and educational family festival held every October at the Rio Salado Audubon Center in South Phoenix. The “nature by night” fall festival teaches children and adults about nature, science, and Arizona's nocturnal wildlife through a scavenger hunt and several other fun activities.

Participants can stay and enjoy our night hike; view live wildlife including owls, snakes, scorpions and more; meet and learn from local scientists; get some food; and make a nocturnal animal mask inside the Center – just in time for Halloween!

This event is supported by the generosity of Arizona Rock Products Association, Ballard Spahr, CEMEX, GateWay Community College, Gila River Sand & Gravel, Ryley Carlock & Applewhite, and Vulcan Materials.
