My boyfriend and I visited Papago Park to check out the new disc golf course while we were in Phoenix. The course is 18 holes and appeared to still be under construction as there were no permanent signs in place yet. The layout of the course was a bit confusing – it was often hard to tell which basket you... More

The hole in the rock is a very interesting site. It was fun for my son to have his picture taken in it. The native plants are great to see and photograph.

Husband and i had a nice little visit. Mistake we made was going after Sunday brunch. Did not feel like hiking, too full. A lot of families were there that day and of course it was a bit humid. Nice little place and if we had planned better I would have worn better shoes. Would hike again on a future... More

It was very crowded for a Saturday. Beautiful scenery. I enjoyed the hole-in-the-rock feature. Loved it.

Excellent family hiking area. Make sure to hike during the day, take your cell phone, snacks, water, and let others know you are going. If you get lost just hike down to the base, the entire city of Phoenix surrounds the park so you are NOT truly lost and if you call for help it will cost you, rescuers can... More

Papago park is made up of the areas most unusual colored mountains. (We often joke that they are man-made) The trip is a lovely one especially combined with the trip across the street to Desert Botanical Gardens. Enjoy

My second favorite hike, with the first being the Echo Canyon trail at Camelback Mountain. This fools you....you start up not to steep, but it's the last half mile or so that will get you! Great views, a nice under-2-hour hike. Take water!

Unfortunately, we did not have a chance to experience all that Papago Park has to offer. There are great hiking trails and many attractions for children & adults alike. The softball complex is well kept and we enjoyed a pleasant time.

A friend of mine from Phoenix took me here. It was absolutely lovely. We walked up to "The Holdein the Rock." It was a very easy walk. Once you get through the hole, you have a wonderful panoramic view of the city and surrounding areas.
