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.

Silly Mtn is just across Hwy 60 from our RV Resort and every time we pass the parking lot we see many cars parked there. Finally my hiking group walked over from Canyon Vistas RV Resort and hiked the loop you see here, plus every "cross path" for a total of about 6 miles. The group marked it Easy to Moderate but there wasn't much in the easy category... but the scenery was a big surprise and I'm glad I did it!!!!!!!

Decent views. Easy to access. A bit too close to the highway for my liking.

4 stars mostly for sentimental value. Some nice views of the Superstitions and one confusing part where the trail follows a less than obvious route.

The trail was okay. A lot of rocks. Very confusing trail. It’s not Silly Trail it has different names and at the near end loop I could not find the trail instead of that I went in Mt Baldy trail to get to my car. I give 3 stars two reason are a lot of rocks but the major reason is the trails are very confusing. Yes I use All Trail Map by the way

If you’re looking for a trail that will kick your butt and have great views of the Superstitions. This is your kinda trail! The first part of the trail is a great incline to the top with some of the trail being very rocky. The other parts are taking big steps up into other rocks. Once at the top there’s a couple different ways to take but the overall trail is a big circle. I personally wouldn’t take my dog on this trail compared to others we have taken her on. I would love to do this trail during sunset or sunrise next.

Hiked with our dog. Warnings were up because a fox with potential rabies was spotted in the area. We went counter clockwise which meant tackling the steep section first and the rest became an easy walk. Nice view of Superstition Mountains from the top.

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!

Accidentally took a cross cut (Old Baldy Trail) and cut my hike a bit short.
