I really enjoy walking around in this park. You can hike on the trails or just walk on the paved side walk. It is an awesome place to check out the desert in the city.

Lots of great hiking and biking routes. Pretty well marked. Some of the routes are more challenging than others. They can be a full day or a short one hour back and forth. Check to see which you want to do.

Gotta be reasonably in shape to ascend Phoenix numerous strange mountains. But well worth the uphill walk to see where the concrete ends... Off beaten paths. The real Phoenix. Everything else is man made & congested.

What a hike! They say it's rated extremely difficult and you know what?? IT IS! We had a great time climbing up the rocks and looking at the amazing view points. What always amazes me about hiking trails like this is the amount of people...More
