Mormon Trail to Hidden Valley is about 4.2 miles long and located near Citrus Hills, Arizona. The trail is great for hiking and normally takes 2-4 hours. There are many trails in this area, worthy of more hiking. The Hidden Valley loop offers interesting tunnels, dry waterfalls, and a cool squeeze through Fat Man's pass. While it might be tempting, it is not recommended to hike off trail in this area is it is very difficult to make any progress and easy to lose sight of the trail. Given the close proximity with Phoenix, you should be ready to share this trail with many others, especially on nice winter weekends. Bring your camera as there are many opportunities for great photos. Enjoy your hike!

Loved this trail. Centipedes, chipmunks, rabbits, lizards, yellow birds, orange dragon flies & not to mention the beautiful AZ Desert landscape. Fat man's pass was an interesting experience. In addition, the sights in Hidden Valley are breath taking. Completed these trails in about 2 hrs.

Pretty good workout in the beginning, especially with the temp at 110 degrees but the back half was easy - after about a mile & a half in. Not a lot of people out in a late July evening; made it a pleasant, quiet hike. Spectacularly colourful sunset! Which gave that push from 4 to 5 stars.

Dog poo all over the trail though. Pick up after your pooches folks!!

Fun hike. Moderate difficulty in the beginning (Mormon trail) but relatively easy once you reach the Hidden Valley loop where there are a lot of nice rock formations, which were really fun to climb. Great for kids!

Decent amount of boulders to hike up and was slightly boring until we got to the hidden valley loop. Fat man's pass, the tunnel, and having to slide down rocks made up for the heat though!
