Explore the most popular dogs on leash trails in Thunderbird Conservation Park with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

Fun stair-like climb, slow ascend but a lot of rocks to step up.

if you follow the whole loop- coach whip-ridgeline-sunrise-coach whip, it's more like 4 miles. still a good easy/mod hike

I would do counter clockwise next time, too much down hill, and lots of loose rock the entire 7 miles

I had a blast. Good trail. Amazing view from the top with benches to chill or meditate.

Love the flag at the top! Very motivational...

Nice trail for us older folks just starting out

This was an amazing sunset hike to do. It’s fast and easy and you have plenty of time to get to the bottom before dark!

Nice, quick morning hike, 30 minutes up, 30 minutes down. Probably faster if you're not skittish and out of shape like me.

Wonderful view when you reach the top, plus a cute selfie op with the flag. Saw a bunch of lizards sunbathing and whatnot on the way up.

Definitely bring enough water and a hat, especially in the spring and summer.

Great for dogs too!

Disappointed by this trail. So many other better trails in Phoenix. It's fine if you're looking for something short, quick and easy and don't care much about seeing desert flora - not too many cacti here compared to other places.

An easy, convenient trail I find myself on a couple times a week.

Good workout! lots of loose rock in places, awesome views all around. it can be kind of crowded at times.

great for a morning hike and perfect to do with family.

This park is so crowded, but well maintained and easy to access if you're in a time crunch. There are rocks and the occasional snake, but I do enjoy completing this hike several times a year.

First hike I ever did and now do it routinely. A bit crowded on weekends.

lots of traffic, easy and well marked

Love this trail after work! Nice little night hike! Not too difficult and is a good little cardio session!

Great, quick after work hike. 30-35 minutes up and down.

Love it! About 25 minutes to the top, can go the switchback route that has more flat spots, or turn right at the fork for a longer more steady incline. Overall, shorter hike with nice views of the lakes below.

Description is accurate; I would add lots of loose rocks to navigate while walking.

Good place to see the sunset.

Been hiking this one for years, and it never gets old. The peak view is decent, but it’s the fun terrain of the trail that keeps bringing me back.

Enjoyed the Sunrise trail on a mid day hike.
It was a 1.8 mile hike roundtrip and is easy to moderate.
It took us about an hour including stops at the top for photos.

Didnt get to finish it because of emergency but overall good ups and downs. Got there at 7am sharp and there were a lot of parking spots but when I came back around 9am it was almost all full. Trail Mix might be a good idea on this trail. There was a good crowd but I didn't find it unbearable. Good cardio for sure!
