My 5 yr old son and I did this climb for the first time today. Let it be known that this is NOT an easy stroll like it is on A-Mountain in Tempe where it is paved. This hike has loose rocks underfoot similar to...More
This is a very nice hiking area. The trails are well marked and the flora and fauna are nicely identified. The views of the valley and the Superstition Mountains are beautiful from the top of Silly Mountain.
My wife and I happened to find a brochure for Silly Mountain at the Apache Junction Library. We are in our 60s and have no mountain climbing experience, but decided to give it a try. Armed with our map and bottles of water we set...More

It has been a month or so since I've been there but I would say yes, I usually did the harder part of the hike first (not really that bad, but it is the steepest), and then once you go up over the top you will go to the right and keep to the left as you meet other trails. This will basically bring you around the mountain back to the parking lot. As you leave the parking lot you will see a sign with the trials on it. This is where I go to the right first. I would say it is a say easy hike yet a very good workout with great views.
