Great little hike in the middle of Mesa!
I’m not a very experienced hiker, but the only things that I didn’t like was the gravel/loose rocks/stones going back down. First part was a bit steep...unless you were any one of the kids scrambling up it. Fantastic 360o views!

Hiked with my 1 1/2 year old and 7 year old. Quick and easy hike. Beautiful view of surrounding mountains past the rooftops. Watch out for the dog crap scattered about—please bring bags if you bring your dogs!

Pretty easy hike. Not stroller friendly. Paths are clear but pretty washed out, so you have to watch your stepping.

Easy trail, kind of steep and rocky terrain at first but overall a nice little hike.

Really short hike! I clocked it at a little less than a mile total. Steep on the way up and a nice little view at the top. Super rocky but pretty easy! Watch your step, lots and lots of dog crap everywhere.

Loved it! Will definitely return!

Great, quick hike. The first 1/3 of the hike is pretty steep! Big path so greats for dogs! Easy enough to do at night too! (Only about a mile long... this map shows the hiker going all the way up, then down to halfway point, then back up again)
