Been here several times before hikes, scorpion walks. Guides are very interesting and full of fun facts . Did several full moon hikes. Always a fun time. Great for children and adults.

We visited the park twice on our week long trip to the Valley. Once with kids and once without. Mountain Biking- First time mountain biking and would recommend it to anyone from beginner to advanced! Many many miles of trails for all levels. Water and restrooms are available. Kids enjoyed the different playgrounds and hiking!

My grandkids (10 and 6 yrs old) and I just recently had the pleasure of participating in this hike at the Usery Mountain park west of Phoenix. The 'scavenger' hunt consisted of finding and identifying desert animals and flora, from clues given in a riddle-type fashion. Honestly, being from the east coast, I had a hard time identifying most of... More

I've never really been hiking in the desert before and Usery Park is a great place to start. Plenty of saguaros and other desert plants to see. There are rough and tough trails for the hiker crazies and there are easy hikes that are totally kid-friendly.

The views from the Wind Cave are wonderful and the hike up and back is great. I highly recommend going early on a weekday if you can as this place is very popular with serious hikers, families, and people with pets. By early afternoon on a weekend, you will often be waiting for others to pass. Take lots of water.... More

Water, water, water. Bring it with you. Fantastic scenery and well worth the 1.5 mile scramble up to the cave. There were so many tourists who had just a small water bottle with them. I think most had finished it before making it halfway up. I'd suggest bringing 2 liters per person if you're not used to that kind of... More

Nice visitor center with info, $6.00 to get into the park. We did the easier trails and in march saw lots of wildflowers blooming, hummingbirds and small wildlife. We were there on a Sunday though and the trailhead to the harder cave trail was packed with cars parked all over the place by 11 am I would recommend going early... More

Our friends and us have been visiting Usery Park for over a decade now. The facilities, picnic shelters, washrooms etc are first class. The hike to the Wind Cave is a memorable experience on a well maintained trail. More recently a nature centre has been built and is staffed with knowledgeable volunteers. There are free daily programmes to acquaint people... More
