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.

It’s a decent hike, safe and fun for kids. You’ll crouch and slide a bit between the dry river and Mormon Loop. There are neat spots to take pictures. This trail stays pretty busy during the day.

Hidden Valley and Fatman’s Pass are a hoot. Be prepared for a tight squeeze through Fatman’s Pass as well as some rock scrambling and sliding down boulders on your backside which is the safest way to traverse some of those steeper areas. Beautiful and fun.

If you start your hike early, it is mostly shaded. The views are beautiful!
