Nice Spot and Lots of Trails
Apr 2021
Easy to get to, lots of parking, friendly assistants, and great trails. Worth a visit if you’d like the outdoors.

Great hikes
Apr 2021
Loved simple hikes in the desert. Lots of cacti to see. Great photo op. Whole family enjoyed experience. There were several trails. We just took our own route.

So many trail choices!
Jan 2021
We went for a casual afternoon walk and had hopes of seeing the sunset. Lots of choices and difficulty levels to choose from. All trails clearly marked with signs. Saw several adults and kiddos on bikes. Nice wide and clean trails for us. Love the Sonoran desert!

dang busy on Superbowl Sunday
Feb 2021
Our first hike in the Phoenix area. Really nice area. Parking lot was nearly full at 11am. and the main trail leading out behind the visitor center/restroom area was busy. Most folks doing a good job masking when needed and/or giving wide berth when passing.

The Brown's Mtn Loop was popular with hikers and bikers. Sandy and packed dirt, quite wide.
The spur to the top was not too busy but still had a fair number of folks, and, surprisingly, half a dozen walking their mountain bikes up. Why? I didn't ask. Didn't see anyone bike down. The peak requires a bit of high-stepping and scrambling in a couple very steep sections.
Less popular, thankfully, was the Cone Mtn loop. Much narrower path, too. Still some bikes we needed to make way for. No known path to the top of Cone.
Good restroom facilities.

Enjoy nature while you isolate

Well marked and groomed trails for all levels. We hiked to the summit and then down and around the back side. It was lovely and will get even prettier when the cacti bloom.

Lots of parking and trails
Feb 2020
I loved this trailhead because it has so many options available. From the super-easy 1/2 mile trail to ones that go for miles and miles around the park. I particularly liked climbing Brown Mountain.

Hike, bike, boulder and picnic! So beautiful
Jan 2020
This is THE place to hike, bike, boulder and picnic on the multiple trails. Great easy mountain biking for beginners, hiking is just beautiful, climb the boulders and enjoy a picnic in an incredibly scenic area. See wildlife such as deers, birds, and much more. This spot never gets old. Bathroom facilities with running water (believe me, some places don't have this) are super nice as well. Plenty of parking too. This hiking spot is a must see in the Phoenix area.

Nice Trail
Feb 2020 • Friends
Nice trail with interesting views. A shortcoming was undesirable traffic, namely, many bicycles and a number of horses.

Huge, beautiful area
Feb 2020
Many different loops/hikes to choose from. Mountain bikes, hikers & equestrians share the trails, which can get busy on weekends in the milder weather. Kid & dog friendly - but no dogs if the temperature is expected to be above 90 degrees. Dogs need to be leashed - city ordinance.
