If you want to get a feel for what the mountainous areas of the deserts of Arizona are like without leaving Phoenix, this is a great place to do it. You'll feel like you've left the city far behind, and can enjoy truly spectacular scenery.

There are many parking lots and trails (easy to difficult) within the preserve. Check out the board map under a portico. Free parking. Fairly rocky so wear heavy duty soles. Rapid ascent. Somewhat busy with hikers. A common goal is reaching The Summit, elevation 2400, and a strenuous hike. It might take the slower hiker a couple of hours to get up to The Summit and back. City views are amazing so stop at a bench along the way to take in the scenery and people watch. Take plenty of water.

Great views with hiking/walking for all skill levels Views are amazing and you meet friendly people along the way. Newer visitor center is helpful and provides whatever guidance/information you may need.

Love to look at the Phoenix Mountain Preserves and love the hiking opportunities it provides with such easy access. There are many trails to enjoy, although, the Summit trail continues to be a favorite of most.
