Enjoy the look of the downtown fountain and town landscape from the overlook trails. I found some loose gravel can be slippery under foot if walking quickly up slope or down slope.

The trail is well maintained and gives you several great views of the fountain as well as the rest of the town. Highly recommend!

This area was beautiful but not very well marketed so had to get information from my hotel verbally about the trail and Fountain Hills. It doesn't seem any great hiking/walking map is in place for Fountain Hills but would be helpful if the city provided all resources to the hotels to give to the tourists as this area is a gem but not promoted.

What a great place to visit and walk. We came late in the afternoon the park is clean well-kept the funny part is watching the water fountain go off this a lot of fun we walked around the lake. The weather was great.

This is a lovely, short hike which starts across from the parking lot on N Panorama Dr. It is approximately 1.5 miles with some climbing. From the top you will get a 360 degree view of Fountain Hills and if you plan it right, will also get to see the fountain when it is up. The fountain goes off for 15 minutes on the hour from 9am to 9pm. The hike ends at Fountain Park near the corner of Saguaro and Palisades.

The wind was blowing, we were unable to see the fountain. We paid uber to go to the fountain and ended up returning. They should notify out of towners when fountain is closed.

Overlook is a gradual climb to a view of Fountain Hills and the mountains that surround it. You will find a few benches when you get to the top. I like a thermos of coffee or wine, depending on the time of day, to sip and just relax while gazing at the beautiful desert town.
Although it is a gradual well groomed hill, watch for some loose gravel esp. on the descent. On holidays it is a busy path. You can park right on the curb of the park or at the parking lot across from one of the paths entrance. If it is warm out, remember to bring water. I highly recommend this family friendly walk if you are a local, visitor, a geocacher or at a fast pace it is a great workout.

This is a great trail that takes about an hour from start to finish and the view at the top is incredible. You definitely want to do this hike if you enjoy hiking and you are in Fountain Hills

This fountain and lake is so nice and I walked the trail with some lady friends on a very pleasant afternoon. The fountain itself goes off every hour for 10 minutes and it is a sight to see - the spray is as tall as the Washington Monument!
The trail path is well maintained and wanders through a disc golf course, playground, veterans memorial, sculptures, trees, gardens, etc. as it circles the lake. There are some shady areas and some sunny areas. We truly enjoyed it! I believe the entire walk was 1.7 miles. Very nice.
