Mormon Trail to Hidden Valley is great for hiking and normally takes 2-4 hours. There are many trails in this area, worthy of more hiking. The Hidden Valley loop offers interesting tunnels, dry waterfalls, and a cool squeeze through Fat Man's pass. While it might be tempting, it is not recommended to hike off trail in this area is it is very difficult to make any progress and easy to lose sight of the trail. Given the close proximity with Phoenix, you should be ready to share this trail with many others, especially on nice winter weekends. Bring your camera as there are many opportunities for great photos.

I was hiking to just get in shape and get my heart rate up and I would rate this hike as somewhat moderate. I am in worse than average shape and have a bad knee, but I have hiked a few trails starting towards the end of summer this year and this one is kind of ok as far as hiking for health goes. Would definitely recommend it for kids, especially 8 and older. They have some exciting rocks to explore and at one point the trail requires you to climb up a couple boulders, but nothing too hard for someone with reasonable hiking abilities.

Great Phoenix hike! Amazing scenery! Unlike any other hike I’v done in the valley so far. Not too difficult. Easy in comparison to Camelback’s climb.
