“Great hike in the middle of suburbia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

This was a great hike. Being from NC this is a very different hike and scenery. Seeing cactus and essentially walking through a dessert type environment, but seeing highways, golf course right there was somewhat comforting.

“Lovely vistas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Great place to take in the scenery and get a great hike or biking in for some great exercise. We had a perfect day to visit there as the temps were just right in the mid-70's.

“Cool hole in the mountain next to Phoenix Zoo - FREE!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

Easy hike up the small hill, climb via rock stairs into the hole in the mountain. Make extra time to hike and visit other hills in the area.

“Hole in the Rock a must see for kids”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

Had a few hours to kill during our visit to Phoenix and wanted to give my daughter an opportunity to see the Arizona landscape up close. Papago park was an easy 20 minute drive from our hotel in North Phoenix. Hole in the Rock and the lagoon area were a perfect way to experience Arizona in the middle of the city. If you have a full day, visit the zoo or a ball game next door at Phoenix Municipal Stadium where the Oakland A's play cactus league ball.Definitely worth a visit.

“Most unusual!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

Stopped here for a while. The scenery was wonderful. I can't remeber what they call the rock formation with a hole in it, but it is a easy climb to the top. The view of Phoenix from up there was great. The best part was that it was free!!
