I'm afraid of heights and part of this trail felt scary for me, but probably the prettiest hike inside Phoenix.

This was a good fun hike. Very kid friendly for my 6 year old. Only real complaint is the lack of trail markers. Had to keep my phone out the whole time, though the map on All Trails is very accurate.

This stretch of the Phoenix Mountain Preserves is beautiful. After parking you are not far away from being surrounded by amazing scenery and it almost makes you forget you are still within the city limits. We’ve taken our dog a few times and she enjoys it, although fair warning it is a bit rocky. Some owners will let their dogs roam off leash so be sure to anticipate that if they come running towards you.

A little bit hard to find the way as trail is not marked. Use this app to find the trail - it’s spot on. A great quick hike that feels like your own private trail. Gets the heart pumping with great views up high

Great little hike. Following the trail can be a little boring, but if you’re spontaneous and a little daring, going off trail and climbing the actually mountain is mad fun. The mountain bikers who use the trail aren’t really mindful of the hikers, so just be careful.

Nice short hike with a good incline to get the heart rate up. Don't let the easy rating fool you, getting to the top of the first peak can be a bit tricky with the loose rocks. Wear good shoes with good grip!

Nice easy hike. Good for dogs. A little rocky with some loose rock. No shade so if you come in summer make sure to come early. a little tough to find the start of the hike but once on it is nice.

Very hard to follow Trail. Many rocky areas that look like Trail that ended up not being the Trail.
