I visited the park with my brother and sister-in-law with all our kids. This is a great place for some dessert hiking, family picnics, and nature walks. The kids enjoyed the hike and then played at one of the playgrounds there. I would recommend this place to anyone looking to get away from the City and explore nature and have... More

I have no problem paying to visit a park if it is as nice as Usery. We have taken many hikes in the park, but espeically enjoy the scorpian hikes with Ranger Bob. Very informative and a great sense of humor.

What a great place to hike in the desert. Several trails to choose from with various distances. Be sure to wear good shoes and bring water. Morning time is best because it gets warm in the afternoon. Reasonable entrance fee.

I am not a fan of having to pay to go for a hike! The outdoors belongs to everyone. Hiking in AZ is very different from hiking in the Pacific Northwest. Trails are not always well marked and you can go off them quite easily.

There are a couple of moderately easy hikes here perfect for beginner hikers or for a 3 or 7 mile hike close by. You need either a Maricopa park pass or need to pay a fee here.

A 3,648-acre park offering camping, archery & 29 miles of multi-use trails plus scenic wind caves. Wind Cave Trail was my favorite hike. Beautiful scenery and an easy to moderate level of difficulty for an out of shape 50+. Nice cool shady rest in the cave at the top. GPS showed 3.2 miles round trip and 820 ft of elevation.... More

Recently visited Usery Park for the first time for a get together. I was kind of irked about having to pay $6 per car just to get in. But soon saw that the reserved ramada was spacious, clean and with plenty of close parking. The restroom was about 20 feet away and had hand soap and was clean also. The... More

Admission to the park was $6 and well worth it. We went on the Wind Cave trail, just over three miles of medium-technical trail. The view from the top of the trail is excellent - you can see greater Phoenix and the surrounding area. Bring water, as the trail takes a bit of energy to conquer. Good hiking shoes are... More

Great place to take a hike, visit the nature centre or join in one of the guided hikes or lectures. The staff are so helpful and knowledgeable. I have taken company here to see the great views and learn more about the desert.

Stopped by on our way to Albuquerque New Mexico with the kids and was pleasantly surprised by the beauty and proximity to the city. My son and I enjoyed Usery Mountain Regional Park, wild flower and desert vegetation. There is plenty of hiking, biking and photographic opportunity in this spectacular mountain regional park.
