Great place to hike. Beautiful views!
stenuous! not for the faint of heart. I did see a lot of children!? There are many trails there though and some may be short enough.

We went here in April and the weather was perfect. There are open areas and shaded areas. Perfect for bringing your dog. There are bike trails as well. There are some old structures to see but not that great but it's all in the hike. There are peaks where you can see far and take pictures.

There are also very few people who come here unlike mission peak so you can really enjoy your walk.

Good place to take a walk with your four-legged friend - not too many places that are this dog friendly around. Lots of trails and varying length and difficulty. Be sure to bring water as it can get hot out there though! And bathrooms are few and far between.

I've hiked on every trail in this park and I love it! Springtime is especially rewarding as there are so many different types and kinds of wildflowers. Try the Hacienda or Mockingbird entrances--less crowded than Macabee and plenty of parking.

This park is fabulous, especially in the summer time when it's virtually deserted. I've seen everything from bobcats to deer here. The hills are a great workout going up, and I enjoy running down the other side (though be careful not to trip and fall on the rocks!) Interesting to see the old mine works here as well, it's fun to imagine what the place used to be like a hundred years ago. It gets really crowded especially on weekends particularly at the McAbee entrance. Still, it's amazing how you can go hiking for miles and hardly run into anyone else.
