Dixie Mountain is a moderate to difficult hike located near Anthem in the very northern reaches of the city. Parking is wierd... everytime I have hiked this there are about two cars worth of parking on a neighborhood street where the trailhead is located. If there is a lot somewhere it would be awesome for someone to post specific information. With that being said it seems like this trail is primarily used by Anthem residents who can access the trail by walking to it from their home.

I enjoy this hike quite a bit, and personally agree that it is more moderate for those in decent shape but I understand how others perceive it as difficult. Terrain varies, I think it could be done in tennis shoes just fine but if you have boots you may as well bring them, you wouldnt look out of place and some of the rock is of poorer qaulity as you get near the summit.

It's a nice hike that is pretty low traffic and provides nice views of its more challenging neighbor Gavalin Peak.

Great trail. Easy or hard depending on walking or running. Not to bad as far as loose rocks are concerned.

Great trail. More on the moderate side in my opinion. Some steep grades and rock but not a bad trek at all.

Dixie Mtn Loop (turn right at fork) and up to the Dixie Mtn summit is a 3.1 up and back from the trail head. Mod-difficult mix. Great short athletic hike early in the AM on hot days with a great view of the valley at the summit (2,190' altitude).

Pretty moderate hike but in the 106 degree heat it will catch up to you after a few hours out there. Great hike for exploring the desert with a few nice mountainous slopes here and there.
