Getting There

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. There are bathrooms and water located at the trailhead. 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.

Limited parking is available at the trailhead.

Telegraph Pass Trailhead is located at Desert Foothills Parkway (north of Chandler Boulevard) and Seventh Street.

Nice trail. I was able get to the top where the road is in about 30 minutes. I find this trail to be scenic and I went further on the National Trail West to get better views. My only complaint is that owners aren't picking up after their dogs.

Great easy quick trail! It’s pretty busy during the afternoon so try to get there early if you want to avoid the traffic. There is a beautiful lookout at the top of you go a little further once you hit the road at the top.

Gorgeous views, dog friendly on leash. A little steep on the way up but do-able and worth it!

HikingGreat!

I love to park at the top and hike down and back up. Easy coming down, the hike up is a bit of a challenge but fairly short. At a steady pace can get down and up in 20 minutes.
