The park walk is beautiful along with the fountain. The dirt path where the desert scenery is, is Not wheelchair or stroller friendly. If your child can walk it, it can be fun. Not recommended for any child under 3.

Nice hike, was able to complete with my 4 year old with minimal complaining.

Super easy hike with excellent views of u Hills and the "World Famous" Fountain. A short 2.5 mile hike is a great way to get the blood moving while enjoying the local neighborhood.

The views + hills are great! Awesome for running or a well paced fitness hike.

Unless you already live in Fountain Hills don’t go to the effort of driving out to this hike. Was lame

What a cute little hike before the day gets hot! It’s kind of strange hiking through the middle of a neighborhood but the view at the highest point is pretty amazing. I actually ended up doing the trail backwards (ooops) but the trail was wide enough to accommodate. The area is well maintained and easily marked.

An easy hike to do with kids and end at the park. The views of the fountain are gorgeous but so are the views of the surrounding mountains. Nice seeing snow on some of the higher peaks right from the trail over the winter! This hike is one of my favorite to do with out of town visitors...

Better hike than expected. Combo of trail and concrete. Beautiful views of the town and fountain. Good quick workout. Recommend!
