What a lovely area. Saw lots of different birds and some bunnies. The ducks laughed a lot and the cicadas were buzzing loudly in some parts. Easy hike more of a walk but nice either way.

Nice nature walk if you have young children.

it definately has opportunity to try different trails. it does spider off and connect to other trails randomly. the trail makes you feel like you're in the middle of the desert but you know that the freeway is close by. I have run into a snake before, no big deal. the wild life is very scarce. great starting area!

I wouldn't call this a hike, more of a nature walk. Really nice for families with young kids or small/old dogs that can't do anything too strenuous, or if you want something quick after work without having to drive out of town. This does get super crowded on the weekends, so keep that in mind.

Always a good time love this trail

This trail is what you would expect. Its fairly easy however there is a small portion on the mountain itself that is slightly difficult, but beginners would still be okay. This is a personal preference but I hated that it was almost a mile to the actual hike, the hike itself, then another 'almost mile' back out. This trail is 3/4 desert walking (very little shade) and 1/4 hike.

My favorite trail easy to get to in middle of the city.
Wide, clean, and easy trails great for children and dogs. Clean restrooms with limited parking.

This is an awesome little walk! My dog and I loved the wildlife and scenery ❤️ they had some stuff to read that was interesting and would be great to bring kids.

Interesting feel to this one. You know you’re 10 minutes out of the city yet feel like you’re in the middle of no where.

For the more experienced this is great for a late afternoon or early morning hike to beat that mid day sun.

Still a great hike for those less experienced hikers. Be sure to bring lots of water and allow ample daylight to finish.

If you want to get the perks of hidden valley without the work of Mormon trl. this one is for you.

I know I left a comment, but I’ll leave one more. Literally the single weakest “hike” I’ve been on EVER. Don’t waste your time

It’s walking, not hiking. Half the trail is covered in literal horse shit

Great hike with some switch backs to get your heart pumping. We connected with the National Trail and then took Bajada Trail back to the parking lot. Long trek including National and Bajada, but beautiful! :)

Great workout but I spent the whole time swatting away or running from swarms of monster flies the size of cotton balls. I couldn’t really enjoy my hike. :( Lots of dog poop on the trail too. Please clean up after your pets, people.

Great place to go for a relaxing walk while enjoying nature and wildlife. Lots of birds, ducks and occasionally American pelicans. Also has an observatory for planet or moon viewing on Friday and Saturday nights.

Nice easy walk/stroll around the lake. Friendly ducks. A lot of families and couples. Plenty places to sit and relax.

easy walk lots of birds super easy to get to.

Nice, easy trail.

Not easy, but not crazy hard! Lots of stepping up, great views when you look back. We found a lot of little shady areas to take short breaks. I had to park down the street in an overflow lot, and we met at 10:00am.

Back to South Mountain today. I used to live there, three blocks from the trails, and I was on the mountain 2, 3, or 4 times per week. Alas, now I live away and I have to travel back to use the trails. Oh well, went back for a hike today. I had decided to take Kiwanis up to National to have a look at the radio towers, but I forgot the way to Kiwanis! I knew it was reachable from behind the Environmental Education Center, and wandered around there until I found Los Lomitas Trail. I remembered that one, even though I hadn't been on it in years. Started down the trail, and soon enough came to Hideout Loop. Hideout Loop leads to an old adobe house held within adobe walls. I believe that was built around 1938. It belongs to the City of Phoenix now, but it is quite striking. Walking to the front door, I found that locked, but right next to it was a side door that was open, allowing entrance to the house! It's pitch black inside, since the windows are all boarded up. I walked in a short distance and found in the front room bedding and empty bottles. There have been residents, or at least campers. I headed away from the Hideout and then found Kiwanis and started up, I have traveled down Kiwanis a few times, but this was my first time going up. It's probably not quite as easy as Alltrails makes it out to be, but it's fully manageable. A pretty trail with things to see. Well worth the hike.

This is easy to moderate. Some rocks I could not get down I had to sit and slide. Some narrow trail. A lot of incline great work out. I enjoy seeing few thing on this Hiking such as Tunnel/buildings/view of Phoenix. Will come back again

Definitely not EASY! I wanted to take my pup on his first hike and he was tired about halfway up, due to the steepness! It was undeniably a very beautiful hike and had clearly marked pathways!

Quite an enjoyable break from the usual desert scenery. Plenty of water, shade, and wildlife. Great for kids, more of a stroll than a hike.
