Our Blue Heeler loves this area as much as we do. Is close to home, has nice variety of trails, plus beautiful informative Arboretum. Maps n water fountain available. Beautiful scenic views.

My husband and I visited his Dad in Apache Junction and did most parts of this little mountain's hiking trails starting at 7 am. The Huff & Puff trail is definitely just that, but honestly I thought it would be harder than it was. Beautiful views from all parts of the trails......must bring water and start early in the day!

took my kids ages 17 and 9 and this was a great little hike. Not too hard for the 9 year old - my son loved climbing a little higher than us girls. Take plenty of water - seemed like it would be ok for dogs too.

This is a good, short hike, best done during the fall, winter, or spring months. Also has a little wheelchair-friendly interpretive trail. There are good views from the top, and several geocaches along the trail.

This mountain is the perfect size for the young beginner, The senior still trying to stay active, or even the pro who is short on time and likes to fit in a daily hike to keep in shape. For me.... well...i'm a middle age Grandma, not in the best active shape, and have 4 feisty young grandsons, ages 8 to... More

The park has some labeled vegetation that can be viewed from a paved path. The real attraction is the hike to the top of the "mountain", actually a quite high hill. It is an easy to moderate climb that anyone in average condition can do. At the top, one can look over the entire Phoenix valley. Downtown Phoenix is about... More

Take a hike up Silly Mountain and see the Superstitions and the desert from a new angle. There is plenty of parking at the base off the highway (60), and trails with signs telling about the area head upwards. It is a gravel trail, and poles would be useful for those who need balance assistance, especially going downhill. It is... More

Just right, not too easy, not too tough. Go early in the day before it gets too hot. Take a water bottle and a walking stick and have a nice adventure.

Love this park, easy to climb and we did get to the tip of the little "mountain" and could see forever. Easy walking but make sure and grab a map as we did get lost for quite a while and saw no one, knew when we saw the Far East fence and homes we had taken a wrong turn. TAKE... More

We enjoyed this hike with our kids 11, 10, 8, and 6). We took the Superstition View and Old Baldy trails. Some of the trails are a little confusing, so we got off the trail a bit, but we figured it out. It was our hardest hike of the week (but it wasn't too difficult).
