“Moonlight Walk”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

Great experience in the park. A lot of people but it is still kind of intimate. Great hike under the full moon. Light hiking with great narration from one of the senior park rangers. Suggest tennis shoes and a flashlight.

“Excellent campground and great hiking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2014 via mobile

The campground has lovely, spacious sites with full hookups, picnic tables and fire pits. The bathrooms are well kept and even have showers. During the day, we hiked in the morning and went shooting at the nearby rifle range. Usery is a located a little higher than Phoenix, but camping Jun-Oct would be too hot.

“Good Hiking Trails”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2014

We hiked the Blevins Trail and a couple other trails at Usery. The ones we were on were wide, sandy paths, more a walk than a hike. All the intersections were clearly marked with signs. The map for the trails available when entering the park was thorough. arThe scenery was great, with saguaro blooming, cholla, and prickly pear. The only thing that wasn't that great was the person at the desk at the Visitor's Center didn't seem to be very knowledgeable about the park. That explains only 4 stars.

Great park to visit and drive through. Park has fantastic outdoor shooting range, also very close to Tonto National Forest and Lake Sagauro.

“Wind Cave Hike”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2014

This is the first hike I've paid for in Phoenix. Didn't really care for that part, but the hike was good. Started off not having a clue and ended up on the Vista Trail near the Merkle Trail. For someone who likes hiking this one left a bit to be desired. It maybe took 15 minutes. Eventually wandered over to the Wind Cave Trail, which was much more to my liking. The trail is well marked and is mainly an uphill climb. The steps were not too high, but did keep going up. Saw lots of dogs and families with small kids here as well.
