Explore the most popular birding trails near Glendale with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

Fun stair-like climb, slow ascend but a lot of rocks to step up.

if you follow the whole loop- coach whip-ridgeline-sunrise-coach whip, it's more like 4 miles. still a good easy/mod hike

Love the flag at the top! Very motivational...

Nice trail for us older folks just starting out

This was an amazing sunset hike to do. It’s fast and easy and you have plenty of time to get to the bottom before dark!

Disappointed by this trail. So many other better trails in Phoenix. It's fine if you're looking for something short, quick and easy and don't care much about seeing desert flora - not too many cacti here compared to other places.

An easy, convenient trail I find myself on a couple times a week.

Good workout! lots of loose rock in places, awesome views all around. it can be kind of crowded at times.

great for a morning hike and perfect to do with family.

This park is so crowded, but well maintained and easy to access if you're in a time crunch. There are rocks and the occasional snake, but I do enjoy completing this hike several times a year.

First hike I ever did and now do it routinely. A bit crowded on weekends.

lots of traffic, easy and well marked

Love this trail after work! Nice little night hike! Not too difficult and is a good little cardio session!

Love it! About 25 minutes to the top, can go the switchback route that has more flat spots, or turn right at the fork for a longer more steady incline. Overall, shorter hike with nice views of the lakes below.

Description is accurate; I would add lots of loose rocks to navigate while walking.

Most of it’s too close to civilization for my liking. But The trails over the Ridgetop sent up to the flag on the sunrise summit are fine.

Challenging but not overwhelming. would reccomend highly.

Been hiking this one for years, and it never gets old. The peak view is decent, but it’s the fun terrain of the trail that keeps bringing me back.

Enjoyed the Sunrise trail on a mid day hike.
It was a 1.8 mile hike roundtrip and is easy to moderate.
It took us about an hour including stops at the top for photos.

A good moderate trail for various ages.
~ Cons: No restrooms at the base. But there are some at Sunrise (just Southwest).
~ Family: We also saw a family having a post Sunday service meal/picnic at the cabanas. A good reminder of family values and how the space is good for everyone. Not just hikers.

This was my second hike of the day and took me only about 40 mins going clockwise. Loved this as a quick workout. Parts were super rocky but overall a nice hike. Looooots of people on this one!

Good trail with a good view. Go right at the fork if you want a harder hike!

Relaxed hike with a nice sunset view at the peak. Some of the hikers didn’t even have water. It’s that easy.

This is my go-to, no-brainer trail. Very clearly marked and moderately trafficked, you can do just one of the trails or combine a few for a longer hike. Definitely do this one routinely
