An easy hike, lower area with desert plants identified, if a more avid hiker u can take a gentle climb to higher areas. If u climb to the top u will have a great view of Superstition Mt. & desert below it.

At the end of the day Silly Mountain offered a great view of the sunset, so with a short hike to the halfway point we were able to view the surrounding greater Phoenix area. If we're to climb to the top it would take us one hour, so plan accordingly to descend before sunset.

The trek up the Silly Mountain is easy part way up and also has some difficult challenging climbs. A most enjoyable hike with great views . The mountain is so very close to Apache Junction.

We are not hikers but wanted a scenic place to walk and Silly Mountain was perfect. Did the Botanical Trail as a warmup and then headed up the mountain. Pretty easy walking and a great view. Ample, easy parking. One issue was no maps and poor poster map for everyone to see.

A fun hike up the mountain. My family group is physically fit so it was nothing but fun for our very first hike in the Apache Junction area. The trail we took was not difficult until we got a little higher where the trail got very narrow and very steep right at the top. A great place for a family... More

You can come here with anyone ! A first date, friends you haven't seen since highschool but arranged a hike through facebook, kiddos, or significant others. I have hiked up here with many people. I even went on my own a few mornings, and that is because there is almost always someone there, and there are smaller trails. There is... More

Relatively easy hiking in an area you don't need to be afraid of getting lost in. Easy access and parking. Doesn't cost anything.

This hill looks deceivingly easy to hike. Take your water, wear good boots, and enjoy the views of the Superstitions.

About 10 miles of hiking trails-- go for an hour or two or three.a good work out with a good view. There is also a shorter wheel-chair accessible trail at the base of the mountain that is paved and the local flora identified.
