Very easy climb to the hole in the rock.View was good but not great. Was somewhat busy but still had enough space to not feel crowded . Probably would not return however. If your in the area check it out .otherwise skip this location

If you like hiking, here's one that is relatively easy although it does involve some climbing. Great view of the city when you reach the "hole". The name of the place is exactly what it is, a big hole in a huge rock/mountain. Good photo spot.

My wife and I visited here on our trip to the airport and spent about 40 minutes there. It is a quick walk to the top and the view is phenomenal.

Free parking. Free park. Easy trail for the kids with a great views of city of Phoenix, the park's water oasis and you can even see in the far distance the giraffes at the Phoenix Zoo. Hole in the Rock will create memorable photo opportunity.

Easy trail nice spot. Relaxing and a must do. Don't end it here though that would be sad. Walk all the trails around the area there are lots to see around there.

That's exactly what you get - a hole in the rock. The history is interesting though. Worth a stop for a couple of pics, that's all

I'm not into climbing or hiking at all but this was just right. The climb was pretty easy and the view was phenomenal. Bring your camera and sunglasses, and enjoy.
