Easily accessible, short, in-town hike. Popular for joggers and dog-walkers. Short enough to be great for kids, but still offers rewarding views of metro Phoenix. The first mile of this trail is a textured concrete surface for easy walking. The trail then splits off to continue on to Telegraph Pass, or on to The Desert Classic Trail. The remaining one mile of Telegraph Pass Trail ends at the Summit Road, and offers quick access to the National Trail and the Kiwanis Trail within the park upon reaching the roadway. The Desert Classic Trail continues on for about 9 miles through the foothills on the south side of South Mountain and terminates at the south ramada area in Pima Canyon. Some Hohokam petroglyphs can be seen along this trail.
