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.

This is a rockier trail, but there's a lot to like. No entry fee, initial climb is decent (rest of trail pretty easy), additional trail options to make your hike shorter/longer or easier/little harder depending upon your needs, and the views are pretty great. There's a fountain for humans/dogs and a portapotty. Even rocky - most of trail great for dogs. Moderately busy.

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