Fun stop, right beside a zoo, botanical garden and seemed like a place so really spend a day. We walked up at sunset and it was awesome!

It's an easy and interesting stop to make. There is a small parking lot right nearby and it's only a five minute walk to get up the the hole in the rock. It is a dirt trail, but it's not a hike, everybody should be able to make the short walk up to it. There are other attractions nearby such... More

My mom and I are visiting the area for the first time on a short trip to visit family. This was on my list and was a short distance from my niece's home. However, we spent a long time searching for it. The address will bring you "close" an you can definitely see it, but there are NO signs directing... More

My son and I were looking for something to do while we waited for our flight home. We came across this place and had a great time. The hike wasn't bad at all, very short like everyone else explained in there comments. Gorgeous view, I'm sure sunrise and sunset from this point would be epic.

This is where I always bring people who are visiting from out of town. It's a very short hike ("hike" may even be too strong of a word) to the hole and there are practically stairs leading up to it. There are actual stairs leading into the hole. The area is pretty big so there is plenty of space for... More

Hole in the Rock is fun to see and a good photo op, but not an all day adventure. A quick stop is all you need.

Good to have seen the 'hole in the rock', feels like Jurassic Park and looks quite out of site. Nice little quick walk up to the hole, does not take too much time!

OK.... we climbed this rock after our trip to Sedona so my opinion might be a bit slanted. First, due to the previous days deluge, some of the roads getting into the Rock were closed so it took awhile to figure out how to get to it. There were no signs advising us of the trail to climb it, we... More

Don't go when it is too hot. This is a nice excursion with younger children. Bring water. It is a pretty easy climb.

I had a little time to kill so I took in the Hole In The Rock. It is literally a hole in the rock hill. It is located a short drive from downtown Phoenix or the airport, The climb from the parking area is a fairly easy and there is a great view once you reach the hole. This is... More
