The location near the zoo makes it a good location for families to enjoy the Rock. This natural hole is a cool place to get good views of Phoenix, Tempe and the airport.

Easy hike for kids and adults but good to wear shoes and not thongs.

Simple and nice area to relax.

Not far out of the main phoenix area, the hole in the rock is a must see must do attraction!

Not that far a walk from the parking area, nice to see the area around it on the walk up too.

Very very hot so do be careful!

Not that easy to find though, head towards zoo then make a left just before the zoo parking starts.

Above all, the views from both side of this hole were incredible, one of the skyline and start of city the other of the nature reserve. Perfect.

100% recommend it.

This is not too high for young kids or far to go, great scenery, and it makes for fun pictures. Older adults are able to make the climb along the backside of the rock as well.

Steep walk but go early or last light. Yes near the zoo but great views and feel the heat. Caution signs for BEE activity so be aware.
