Fountain views, Four Peaks view, desert vegetation, close to coffee! The trail is well groomed and well marked. It parallels some house as you begin to go up the first hill. About 15 minutes and a few switchbacks later you are on the ridgeline. The to West and Southwest is Fountain Hills and the beautiful Fountain Park. To the Northeast lies the great Four Peaks mountain. The views are spectacular. The trail leaves the residential area for a while. It follows the ridgeline and then descends through a series of switchbacks. You will climb another hill and this happens a couple more times along the trail. The trail is almost like a horseshoe in shape in that it ends at another road by a gate into the subdivision you just hiked by. Follow the road down hill towards the Fountain Park for about 1/2 a mile. It intersects with Palisades Boulevard and not too far from the parking lot where you left your car. Great for family hikes and don't forget to stop by and get some coffee (iced) at the Mountain View Coffee Co.

Great loop - close to town. Nice daily hike to get off the road.

For being in town it was great. Went in early June morning and it was only 95 out. Although not a long hike you are in the desert and it can be very hot. The views were great and lots of saguaros to see. Also saw a rabbit.

Park on the east side of the lake then cross over Panorama Dr and look for the Lake Overlook Trail sign. Fun hike with beautiful views. Lots of quail and bunnies.
