Hiking early in the morning is wonderful!

Great place to hike! This is one of the most popular areas to hike in Phoenix. Trails well marked, lots of people.

If you have time and enjoy a nice hike this is an excellent little journey DO take water as the heat can be intense and there is no place to get water once you are in the preserve

I like the closeness of the drive, and the view is wonderful. from the top you get a wonderful view of the whole valley. You do get to see so much of the desert fauna, was great to see so much of it in bloom

It is great to have access to a natural area like Lookout Mt in the middle of an urban area. Its miles of trails and the easy climb to the summit are welcome active outdoors options. But this preserve seems to have been loved to death, with informal paths winding everywhere with attendant erosion and plant destruction issues. It is... More

There's pretty much anything you want to do there outdoors wise. Great hiking, mountain biking, photography, wildlife watching, and anything else you want to do in the desert. Certain parts of it feel like you're in the middle of nowhere, but you're just a few miles from a road at any given time. All levels of trails from flat circumference... More

There is a series of connected hiding trails through the city of Phoenix. Get a map from a visitors' center and start walking. Please pick up after your doggy.

I really love this place! I enjoy hiking with my dog and riding my horse on the trails. The volunteer staff is wonderful as well! Thank you for all you do!

Hike in 2 of the several preserves, one being only 5 min from our condo rental. Trails are marked as to difficulty with good choices for young and old alike.

The mountains in the Phoenix Mountain Preserve offer quite a variety for some good day hikes. I live next to Lookout Mountain and hike with the dogs every morning for a short 1-3 mile hike. These trails have loose rock so wear sturdy shoes and watch your step. The parking lot is never full so I think of this mountain... More
