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.

Great, low intensity hike...perfect for a sunrise or sunset hike, as it is easily accessible and relatively quick to get up. Excellent photo opportunities and views at the top!

No fee to park! Easy to find trailhead and just a fun hike with great views!
Accidentally took a cross cut (Old Baldy Trail) and cut my hike a bit short.
