Hike to the 'A' on the campus of ASU in Tempe. Short but steep with a lot of stairs.
Fun short hike! It's great for someone that has a busy schedule that feels the need to get a hike in. It has a very steep incline so it's a work out if you do it right.
Took the dogs here..pretty quick and heavily trafficked BUT nice view at sunset and you can get a beer at the bottom.
This is a beautiful night hike, I took my wife and two kids and we had a great time. Good workout too.
nice little hike, convenient, thought the track club using the hills for training is awesome.
It may seem nice to be able to hike in such a congested area close to campus but there's so many people just dolly-gagging around on the hike and it's paved to the point that you don't even feel that you're on a nature hike. It takes 10 minutes to get to the top and parking is harder than camelback mountain. The view isn't even that nice unless you go during sunset/sunrise. I won't be back.
Just a bunch of people on an easy hike playing pokemon go
Easy hike up, super crowded and loud. Beautiful view!
If you're an outsider or a foreign to the mountains or simply wants easy place to hike then I would high recommend it. Short distance with an amazing view
good hike for beginners
Gross. Too many rude people, littering, music blasting, kids, crowded. Only good if I'm super desperate for a quick jog-climb. Trashy , litter, graffiti
