“Great Range of Hiking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2013

This is a great park to sharpen your hiking skills. From low/flat trails to big rock/boulder trails there is something here for everyone. The jewel of the park is the lookout point at "Hole in the Rock". The view of the city of Phoenix is breathtaking - and its an super-easy hike.

“Sweet desert sunset”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2013

This is a great place for everyone in the family to watch the sunset. Trails are short and sweet. Rocks can be climbed for better views but not necessary. We watched the sunset, as well as, planes take off and land at the airport. We were in Scottsdale and this is about 15 minutes away, Phoenix and Tempe only minutes away also.

Beautiful sight! Not difficult to walk up to the hole and see the view of Phoenix. Also the tomb there is very interesting to see and read about the family that built it.

“Interesting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2013

Interesting rock formations. The hole in the rock is well worth having a look at, and a great photo location. The information board are helpful and give some interesting facts about the area.

“Great attraction”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2013

This park is only about 20 minutes drive from the heart of Phoenix and well worth the visit. You can walk up to the hole in the rock and enjoy the great views over Phoenix. There are several picnic tables in the area and several walking tracks. The Zoo is there as well although we didn't have time to visit, but it looked well kept.
