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

Good urban trail. Went at 630am and it was fairly busy but everyone was trying to give everyone space and be respectful of social distance. Quite a good leg workout.

Very steep and okay views for being in the city. Not my type of hike, but not the worst. I probably wouldn’t do it again, but if your looking for something close and easy it’s alright!

For an urban hike this is not bad. Very few people on the trail this morning. Steep and lots (LOTS) of stair-type steps. All in all, for a quick hike it’s a thumbs up. Great views of Tempe and ASU. Classic southwest dessert flora (no fauna sightings this morning). Do this hike early in the day, before it starts to get to hot. TAKE WATER.

Very steep but the view of Tempe is worth it! We went when it was very windy but on a still day it is an amazing hike up the mountain!

Steep in some areas, path is clean and paved. Center of Tempe so it’s more of an urban hike. Quick and easy.

Really great short hike - somewhat steep, and the path gets pretty narrow near the top, but beautiful city and mountain views, and nice place to watch the sunset.

Tolerable incline leads to several views of the city, airport and surrounding areas. Tends to be populated. Short hike to the top. Mostly in the sun, next to no shade. Great for tourists.

Take Mill Ave North of 5th St and on the East side past Irish restaurant you can access the trail up the Butte! Short and steep climb but if you go back to Mill st and run north you can hit the Tempe town trail along the water which is flat !

Great short beginner hike, but still rewarding!

The position of the mountain is perfect because the plane is always flying above the top of mountain and low

Good urban hike with stairs and some pavement to get you to the summit. Nice city views and mountains nearby.
