Super popular, expect a lot of people. Trail is easy to follow and the buttes are cool to check out and explore. Good view of Phoenix and the back of Tempe. Fun for the doggies too.

More of a walk than a hike but nicely maintained park. There are a lot of trails that intersect and you could really just walk where ever due to the lack of plants. Go early since there is very little shade. Good for a longer stroll.

I've lived in Phoenix for years and never actually hiked around here before. It was nice though! The buttes and beautiful. It's very busy since its in the middle of the city but you can go off trail on some areas and you'll never get lost. Not a hard hike at all, but it would be really great for getting a good run workout in! Loved the rock stairs and it's fun to climb around the buttes too if you want some incline. I'll definitely go back for a workout since its so conveniently located. Just for reference, it's across the road from the gardens and zoo, not on the same side. The directions on here will lead you right to the trailhead.

Way too easy for me too enjoy as a hike. If I didn't have my pack, I could have run this one. It would be nice for that, but not what I was looking for this morning.

Arid! May be life bird for many, high above the butte are white throated swifts. They just look small and black. You feet will like an upgrade from sneakers to hiking shoes, see loop trail photos. Great views of Tempe and Scottsdale. Easy 1 hour walk.

I would call this walking more than hiking. It was a good afternoon stroll and easy to take our dog. I rated it 4 stars because it is an easy walk if you're not up for strenuous hike but want to get out

Great hike especially for beginner hikers or hikers looking for somewhere not too far away! The ponds there are beautiful
