this is barely a hike but never the less a really cool place to visit I think. the red rocks are gorgeous and the view - especially at sunset - is fantastic.

Not really a hike, more of a 2 minute walk to a spot with a great view. Beautiful at subset!

Great hiking trail, bring walking sticks because of loose rocks but there are steps leading up to the hole in the rock. There’s picnic areas across the street close to a little lake with ducks and fishing if you’re an Arizona resident. Look for prairie dogs, They’re doing a holes all over the place, also walk the botanical garden behind a hole in the rock.

Fun place to go for a quick hike and watch the sunset

This very short hike was so easy. It was fun to perch in the hole.with views of the Phoenix Zoo on the left, downtown Phoenix and the Papago Buttes towards the right. It’s a very busy trail for locals and tourists on a Saturday morning in January. Some young adults dared to scramble to the top of the hole, which sets a dangerous example for the younger kids. The parking lot at the trailhead is very small, however, there’s another parking lot with restrooms just a short walk further. Free parking.

Nice trail but it is over before you get started. Nice view of the city looking down. Will probably focus on more challenging trails going forward.

Beautiful view- would be a great view at sunset

It’s a good little hike to take a 3 to 7 year old to.... just don’t let them try to scale down the front

this place is a little to discovered. we saw jut from the parking lot, no place to park but there were people everywhere. it wasn't even sunset time! We passed and went to the double butte hike across the street.

Great view! Easy for most. A little elevation climb. Might give seniors a little challenge, a walking stick will help, some.
Also other trails to explore connected to this trail.
