This is a great place to hike and enjoy the Arizona desert and mountains. Great views of Phoenix and the entire valley. DO NOT FORGET TO TAKE ENOUGH WATER.

Awesome views and area. For a novice, it might take a minute to grasp the beauty of the desert but this is a good place to start.

We've hiked this preserve previously, but this was the first time we used the trailhead at 32nd and Lincoln. Very easy to find, and the first mile or so of the trail leaving the parking lot is very manageable. From there it connects to several...More

Good hiking trails with great views of Phoenix. Not quite as green this year as last when there was more rain. Wildlife includes rabbits, quail, ground squirrels, lizards and occasionally a scorpion. Watch your step for occasional "land mines", dog owners need to clean up...More

Hikes in the Phoenix Mountain Preserve start at moderate level and are well worth it. Views of Phoenix are incredible, landscapes are gorgeous. Ocotillos in bloom were captivating.

Came early on a Sunday morning with a few friends to check out the scenery and do a little birding. Several trails with varying degrees of difficulty. Nice scenery, quiet and very clean, except for the dog droppings. Very tight parking and already full early.

We visited this park on a Saturday in February. The trails are well marked, some steep and suitable for hard trail running, others between gentle packed earth and even quite a bit of paved, wide trails. This area of mountains is typical Sonoran desert and...More
