Community Spotlight: Trilogy at Wickenburg Ranch

Notable for its attractive amenities, Trilogy at Wickenburg Ranch is just a few miles outside of Wickenburg, Arizona. 

Trilogy at Wickenburg Ranch is located a few miles outside the small town of Wickenburg in Arizona. It’s a community for active adults who prefer the small-town life, with Phoenix a 90-minute drive away. This gated community with 2,000 homes has no age restrictions and stands surrounded by Arizona’s rugged desert landscape with mountains on the horizons.

Surrounding Area

Wickenburg is a town of about 8,000 people, with a good choice of restaurants, shops, banks, and other facilities. A major attraction is the Webb Center for the Performing Arts, a 600-seat auditorium that hosts regular live music shows, talks, local events, and a weekly church service.

To explain why the town of Wickenburg is such an attractive place to live, Morgan Barnes, the Lifestyle Director at Trilogy at Wickenburg Ranch, said:

“I grew up in Wickenburg, and I can attest to the small-town charm. There’s something really special about walking into the grocery store and being greeted by the staff by name and asked how my family is doing. I’ve seen Wickenburg grow and I’ve seen Wickenburg struggle from the economy crash—this new energy surging from the recent growth of the community is a breath of fresh air. It makes me proud to be a Wickenburg native and introduce the small town to new residents.”

There are several other small towns within about a 20-minute drive of Trilogy at Wickenburg Ranch. Within a 45-minute drive, the nearest city is Surprise, located at the northwestern edge of the Phoenix urban area. Surprise has a population of about 140,000 and offers plenty to do, including its Tennis and Racquet Complex, which is one of the best tennis centers in the country. There are also numerous golf courses in and around the city as well as an excellent baseball stadium, which is the spring training home for the Kansas City Royals and the Texas Rangers.

Golf and Dining

Residents of Trilogy at Wickenburg Ranch have access to a number of top-notch amenities within this comparatively small community. The highlight is the 40,000-square-foot Wickenburg Ranch Golf and Social Club, which has an 18-hole course called Big Wick and a second 9-hole course called Li’l Wick.

Big Wick is a par-71 course which was chosen by “Golf Digest” as one of the Top Ten Best New Courses in North America. It plays from almost 4,500 yards on the forward tees to over 7,000 yards from the championship tees. Li’l Wick is a more casual par-3 course where you can rent clubs and play in flip-flops if you want. It also has music playing around the course. When it starts to get dark, the final four holes are illuminated for night play.

The club also has a casual restaurant and bar, Jake’s Spoon and Jake’s Sip, which serves local and regional cuisine and has specials like Taco Tuesdays and Friday Night Fish Fry. Jake’s Sip offers craft beers and wine on tap. On the Li’l Wick course, The Watering Hole bar and grill features wide-screen TVs and a fire pit. Also, the bar at Li’l Wick is more geared toward those who like cocktails and premium bourbons.

Other Amenities

If golf isn’t your thing, there’s an outdoor sports complex with courts for tennis, bocce ball, and pickleball. There’s also a fitness center, an outdoor pool, and a full-service spa. Other amenities include a dog park, a yoga lawn, and Solstice Park, where residents can enjoy stargazing in the clear desert skies.

The community also has 13 miles of hiking trails woven throughout and easy access to the Vulture Peak Trail, a 7.6-mile round trip hike with spectacular views and abundant plant life and wildlife.

According to Morgan Barnes, “Seven days a week, you’ll see our members utilizing the Club House amenities for the clubs and interest groups. They gather together to play cards, knit and stitch, paint, or stay active together. During the cooler season, you’ll see them lounging by the pool or grabbing a bite to eat at the Watering Hole.”


Residents also get together for various clubs and activities like swimming, pickleball, tennis, guided hikes, organized excursions, horseback rides, cookery classes, wine tastings, art classes, movie nights, and parties on holidays.
