I live just a bit south of Cave Creek and I know the area pretty well. It is beginning to suffer from urban sprawl and there are new roads, off road vehicles, and construction in some of the spots that used to be quite isolated. But, if you want to hang in that area, you can do it. Sometimes groups of desert trees worthy of a hammock are few and far between in the Sonoran Desert. Having said that, there are 15' - 20' Mesquite & Palo Verde trees that provide hammock hanging opportunities in the Cave Creek area. Be gentle with them. Look for dry washes, arroyos, and low areas where bosques sometimes occur. I recommend that you stay away from Saguaros and other cacti for hanging purposes. They are protected and tend to fall. One of our good friends lost his teenage son; crushed by a Saguaro in a car accident. The rock hanger method for setting up a hammock in the desert is another option. Bottom line; I think you might have fun if you "go for it".
