This is a great site for a short visit, and easy to get to. It’s right next to the Phoenix Zoo, and a short climb to the top. It will be crowded at sunset, but still enjoyable. Wear hiking shoes or tennis shoes so you...More
We enjoyed a 1-hour walk on the paved Elliot Ramada Loop trail following a visit to the nearby Az Historical Society Museum. Parking was free and easy to access. Views of the rocks and park terrain varied as we followed the loop. We saw people...More

You can easily take the Suburban to the turn off from the Burr Trail but no further. It's about 3 miles down the 'road' to the short trail up to the Strike Valley Overlook, well worth it!

Welcome to Trip Advisor. I just have to make a slight correction to your question..... I think the term is "Hole in the Wall" :) Anyways, for hole in the wall Chinese food, try Sam Wo, 813 Washington St. The spring rolls are awesome! Dr. Z
