The Peak Magazine
Nonprofit for Communication and Community
Founded as a Scottsdale, Arizona magazine, A Peek at the Peak‘s logo is a stylized outline of Pinnacle Peak, North Scottsdale’s most distinctive mountain. A “refreshingly different” magazine founded in 1983, The Peak has been a distinguishing part of the Pinnacle Peak and Desert Foothills community since 1983. By and for that community, it is the only magazine dedicated to quality of life, education, desert preservation, wildlife conservation, and the arts in the North Scottsdale, Carefree, Cave Creek, Rio Verde,
and northern Phoenix areas. The Peak, a nonprofit, 501 (c) 3 publication, is provided as a community service by the Greater Pinnacle Peak Association (GPPA), which was founded in 1977. The magazine, which has received national recognition, features original articles by local writers about local organizations, community events, history, Sonoran plants, animals, restaurants, galleries, and people.
Advertisements in The Peak not only attract customers but they enable advertisers to be part of an established community tradition. By placing ads, advertisers foster desert preservation, wildlife conservation, the arts, education, and community service. Advertisements and GPPA Friends fund publication of The Peak magazine, which provides a voice for local writers and local nonprofits.
