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

Easy peasy. Good views of Tempe, and even downtown Phoenix from here, and I love the downtown Tempe/ASU area.

Nice, quick and challenging for an uphill run. Try running without stopping. I prefer running this after getting done with the gym. Even nice to just walk up it.

It's a semi-iconic walk up a short path that puts you right next to some radio towers. If you are a local I suggest you "hit it and quit it" if you feel left out because you're the only person in your group of friends that hasn't done it.

Definitly not a must do for an actual hiker. Easily accessible from Mill where you can get loaded on the cheap after conquering this "Mountain".

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.
