The hike is through the hills above the fountain park. There are three benches for a rest if necessary. The view of the fountain park is nice.

This is my favorite hiking trail near Fountain Hills. It provides a gentle workout, but offers spectacular views of Fountain Hills, Fort McDowell, Four Peaks, and more. It's an easy hike and can be completed in under an hour.

A hidden gem in Fountain Hills is the Overlook trail, a short hike that rewards you with incredible views of Fountain Hills. It is a “Must See” for all of our out of town guests.
