Hike to the 'A' on the campus of ASU in Tempe. Short but steep with a lot of stairs.

This is a fairly straightforward trail. I actually hiked it, spur of the moment, with a friend, in sandals and a dress with no problems. It is a really short trail, but there is a great view of Tempe from the top. There are paved sections, which kind of took away from the outdoorsy feel. But it’s good for a quick hike if you’re already in the area. I certainly wouldn’t drive a far distance to hike this trail though.

Options for steepness/ skill level with multiple trails going up the hill. Perfect for a quick (45 mins) climb.

Good trail. Some big steps on the last part heading towards the summit. If you have knee issues you can do it, but watch your step.
