The weather was unseasonably cool which allowed us to bring our out of town guests outdoors for a desert walk. So many lengths and levels of difficulty (easy included). So many opportunities for photographing desert life and scenery. We have an annual pass and like...More

Lovely local park with great trails for hiking and horse back riding. Only downside is the mountain bikers crowding out the hikers and horseback riders.

I’ve done these trails solo and with small kids and both are great hikes. It is a very large regional park with mikes of trails. There are longer, flat trails and some steep short ones that give you some awesome views of the southeast valley....More

This is an absolutely fantastic desert mountain park, just minutes from Queen Creek or Gilbert. This is open desert hiking, so take more water than you think you need. The "moderate" trails were very easy for anyone in even reasonably decent shape. The trails are...More

It’s a great trail that leads to amazing views. There are plenty opportunities for photos too. Be careful there’s lots of animal droppings. If you go early it’ll be a breeze & a great experience.

If you think of an idyllic desert landscape, this would be it. Miles of trails, saguaros, prickly pear and hedgehog cacti, blooming wildflowers and wildlife! Take a few hours, bring a hat and sunscreen and explore the various paths. There is very little shade, there’s...More

The trails are rated from easy to difficult but actually it seemed like segments of trails were easy or challenging and loops could be a mixture. Classic southwest scenery. Some trails had benches, some didn't. Carry water! Watch for bikes which can come flying around...More

Not sure, but I would send a note to the park interpretive office and get a first-hand response.
