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.

Good morning pet friendly trek, with just enough challenge to make it interesting.

I love this trail, beautiful nice quiet hike at times. Trails are easy and moderate. Know this mountain like the back of my hand. Love taking new hikers on this trail.

this trail is very very Rocky. not like hiking rocky, but like rock slide prone. you have to tip toe down more than 2/3 of the trail so as not to bust an ankle. no thanks! Usery offers much better trails
