Easy hike in a nice park. Add in the summit trail for a better outing.

Fun little hike in the city. Hiked the summit and circumference in one go. The top portion of the summit is a bit sketchy, but not that bad. Living in one of the surrounding neighborhoods must be great!

It's easy and it's close to where I love.

First Hike. This was fun, and the view from the top was beautiful.

i did the summit hike, it is a little steep and once you get closer to the summit i found it hard to see the trail. i had to stop and let someone go ahead of me so i knew where to go. overall easy hike with a great view. convenient because i live 5 minutes away as well!
definitely try it out!

Love this mountain. So convenient to get a run in before or after work. Great set of trails depending on how long you want to go too.

little tough with my Yorkie

Easy breezy. Literally. Quick sunset hike, great views, fairly quiet trail. 16th St, south of Greenway Parkway. Get it.

Love this mountain.. Can do easy or moderate or hard. A great workout, do all the peaks or a more relaxed walk around the circumference. I do different trails every time I go, so I never get bored. Trails do have a lot of rocks, but just enjoy walking around the park. Average 2.5 - 4 miles each time dependent on if I go up or around. Usually an hour.

Nice short hike. Very easy and nice for a date activity!

Great and easy trail for a quick view at the summit. Trail is marked well till you get towards top. People have created lots of trails so choosing the right one can be difficult. Just keep going up and you will reach the summit!

Good, easy inner city hike. I like to climb to the top of the summit first, then run down and around the circumference. This is a great short hike to do for exercise purposes, especially before work since it's so quick and easy.

Good easy hike if you don't want the steepness and scrambling. Takes you around the base of all 5 peaks and still gives you a good workout and good view.

This hike is a must for any locals. It is centered in the North Phoenix area, far less crowded than Camelback, Piestawa, or North Mountain, and lots of routes to choose from. The Summit Trail, which I approach from the Lookout Mountain Park, located on 18th st., is the perfect starting point for the summit. The summit is a little steep and challenging to get to, but the views are worth it. Try to tag the Western summit while you're at it, a Class-3 climb, but not too hard. Been coming here since I was a kid. Fun hike.

This is a short steep hike. Super fast but with a great view. There is less traffic here than other valley hikes so you can get a bit of solitude.

This is really nice if you only have an hour to spend. Plus the views are really incredible!

Depending on the book or app you use this trail is 2-4 miles long. There are lots of little trails and at some points it is hard to know for sure that you are on the official trail. My fitness tracker logged about 2.5 miles. (The elevation gain if you are on the circumference trail is definitely NOT 800 feet as Alltrails is listing... I think the books I have are more accurate. One says 400 and the other says 500. Those both seem more plausible because there is a bit of uphill but not that much.)

Nice shorter hike close to home.
