This park has everything. Hiking, great bike trails, picnic facilities, fishing ponds and even a zoo. We dropped in for a hike and thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful setting. No charge to enter the park. Not busy at all in January when we visited, but that no doubt changes with the seasons. Take the time to hike up the back side... More

This is a great hike but not many trails. Takes an hour to get up to the top and down and the view is beautiful at the top and around .

I wish I'd had more time here. I only had time for a very brief visit on the way to the airport. All I had time for was to quickly climb up the Hole in the Rock trail, take some photos, and hurry back to the car. It was so peaceful and relaxing up there, I would have loved to... More

I really wanted to explore the outdoors during our visit. With three children, the youngest being two, I realized that many of the popular places would not be appropriate for younger kids. This place was perfect and very picturesque. The water was high when we were there, so we could not sit on the benches by the water because they... More

Lots of free form hiking so you can explore anywhere you want to go! My fiancé and I made this a few hr. trip and loved every min of it! Easy to moderate climbing and is great for people who aren't avid hikers. Has a great view of the phoenix zoo, hunt's tomb and surrounding areas from hole in the... More

I'm coming from flatland Illnois so seeing any mounds or mountains is a thrill for us. This mini mountain is a easy climb and looks more daunting than it is. The kids really love it and while someone could fall of it if they aren't careful, keep your kids close by and you'll have fun and they will burn off... More

We walked up to the arch for a nice view of the City and then headed up to the tomb and sat on a bench, looking out over downtown to watch the sunset. The view was amazing and we were able to watch the planes take off and land at PHX. I had no idea it's such a busy airport.... More

Lovely park with water, native plants, and hole in the rock trail. Define tell take about 40 minutes to take a short walk up to the hole in the rocks. You will be able to get some great photos if the crowd isn't too large.
