This is the perfect way for a family to easily explore some really cool rock formations. The hikes are right off the parking lot, there are picnic tables for a quick lunch and photo opportunities galore.

This short drive to see Hunt’s tomb via Papago Park is interesting. The beautiful Saguaro cacti are everywhere and if you look you will see all manners of wildlife. When you reach the pond it is surrounding by palm trees and is reminiscence of seeing an oasis in the desert in all the movies. It is a cute little place... More

You have to do this. Wear proper footwear. It isn't super easy but it isn't too tough to climb. It's a great view in a lovely park. Yes, it's a do not miss thing to do in Phoenix.

We went to hike to the hole in the rock formation, and found there are 2 sides of the park (divided by the street). The hole in the rock was pretty interesting and the view was nice. It was a very easy hike.
