Scottsdale Outdoor Fun

My Wife and I are from the east coast and are planning a four night trip to Scottsdale sometime in February. We love the outdoors so we're looking for recommendations on any State Parks, hiking, kayking, mtn biking, sightseeing in the area? We wouldn’t mind short day trips (+/-2hr drive). Thank you in advance for any advice.

Sedona is 2 hours from Scottsdale, but it will be really cold in February.

Thanks, sf7307. We've been to Camp Verde, Sedona & Flagstaff areas. We're definitely thinking about making a day trip back up to Sedona, it's one of my favorite places.

What are the temps usually like in February? I did a quick search online and found that the avg temp is around mid-70's. That would be warm for us since it's usually in the 20's-30's in the Northeast in Feb.

I apologize - I checked the weather and it must have been set to Celsius rather than Fahrenheit! It won't be that cold, and of course, it's a great place for getting outdoors. Average high according to Intellicast in February is around 60 degrees (Fahrenheit!!)
