Silly Mountain Park is on the edge of Apache Junction and Gold Canyon. It has a few miles of new trails that loop around the mountain. It's a nice hike with kids/pets. Used by bikers and runners too. Great views of the Phoenix Valley. There is a short nature trail that is ADA accessible.

Watching the sunset on top of silly mountain is a site to see. Absolutely fantastic way to end your day. Nice little incline so you feel like you’re getting a workout but nothing too strenuous. Lots of trail running on this mountain. It’s in the city so it’s not too far of a drive.

Nice quick hike, top half maybe tough for small dogs due to jagged rocks.

I’ve been hiking here for years. It’s easy to access, free, and open year-round. I love that I can customize it for how I’m feeling that day; long, short, easier, harder, hiking or running. I feel very safe going alone.
