Free Outdoor Fun

Nice hiking experience for all ages. Wear walking shoes and outdoor attire, and visit at odd hours to avoid the crowds. Best of all, it's free!

This is a fun and easy hike (about one quarter of a mile on a rocky path) up to a natural hole in a rock. It gives Interesting views of Papago Park and much loved by kids of all ages.

Short hike, but the signs say easy and it was NOT an easy hike, it was short, but I would say moderate. The view from the top was great and these was a cool breeze, so it was very pleasant at the top.

The climb to the hole in the rock was fairly easy and quick. Once at the top, a fantastic view of the city. A family friendly, easy, free site to see. There are several other trails and an oasis close by to see as well.

Excellent (easy) hike with a great view. Parking was easy, bathrooms near by are clean. Picnic tables are abundant, packing a mid morning snack or lunch is easy

You will see a framed Phoenix, and it is really beautiful. Be prepared to share your experience with a lot of people.

Short trek up to the amazing sight!! Nice cool breeze while in the "hole". Spectacular view of the city. Area is clean in the areas most traveled, but trash is still seen from others. I wish others would just take what they brought, instead of disrespecting this beautiful place!!

Fascinating history of how this and the sun predicted the solstice combined with a short and easy trail to see spectacular views !!! If you are on a layover in Phoenix, you may be able to get here. Highly recommended!!!

It's a short drive from the airport to hole in the rock, located right next to Phoenix zoo. It's a 5 minute hike up a trail to the hole. You can get a great pic from the back side that shows the city behind through the hole!
