Very worthwhile if you’ve never done it. Quick, but hard hike to the top. Great view of Tempe. If you really want a workout, you can join others doing spring repeats at the bottom of the hill!

I walk the steep trail every weekday 2 to 5 times Each day. anyone looking for a quick short cardio and leg muscle building will like this. I plan to run it bottom to top before summer hits

A nice scenic walk.

Easy and nice hiking to do with the kiddos (age 5 and 9). Gorgeous views when you get to the top.

Easy hike (paved road) - great to view ASU and Tempe.

This is a nice early morning walk. The view from the top is pretty cool. I recommend going up and down it at least 2-5 times in order to get a really good workout. It sure beats an elliptical.

This is a very easy hike. It’s paved most of the way but really does have a great view of Tempe and of Phoenix from many angles when you get to the lookout and the top. Great for visitors or just knocking around. It’s fun to stop and look at Hayden Flour Mill at the bottom.

If you are near ASU in Phoenix this trail is a must. Amazing views from the top of the mountain.

It was a boring trail, and there are great views at the top. It is paved at the beginning, and there is a wooden staircase at the end. It was a little rocky at the end.

Short, paved and busy. It's steep, but I wouldn't classify it as a typical hike. Agree with previous review that it's better than nothing. Don't mean to hate on A mountain, but I wouldn't go out of my way for it.

See my review on A Mountain at Hayden Butte. Someone should really curate these duplicates...

Good views. Short hike though but it good for wind sprints as you go up.
