Phoenix, Arizona Map

A good little quick hike. Perfect for a quick fix.

Beautiful desert landscape. Did it as a trailrun. Only minus: some target shooters.

Fantastic hike - somewhat technical at times, mild at others; lovely flora/fauna, beautiful rock, great views of Phoenix as well as a few peaceful valleys to explore.

Beautiful easy hike.

Starting from Mountain View Park at the north end of 7th Ave, this is an easy going 5 mile loop. It would be an excellent trail run.

Great fast hike, can connect with National trail to go up to the castle then connect to pyramid trail

Could be a great combo hike/trail run
Some bikers on javelina.
Decent parking that includes dirt lot.

Cool views decent hike

Too many people for me to really love it, but had a lot of fun and is a good hike!

This trail is a great moderate hike with nice views on the back side of the mountain. It’s not easy & there’s loose rock in multiple places. Hard to follow the trail unless you’ve hiked it before. Poorly marked but if you use the trail app it’s worth it.

I would call this hike moderate. You can definitely get your cardio in. Lots of rocks but easy to follow.

Good workout. Not impressed with the scenery. Good views of Phoenix skyline. I think I saw 3 golf courses. Probably won’t go back. There are much better hikes.

Lovely place for hiking some parts are not easy to hike but the top is just wow

Starts off pretty steep. Awesome views once you reach the summit.

This trail is great if you want to walk, do not expect any elevation I would rate this as easy.

Nice loop, good views, able to trail run a lot of it. The Hohokam Observatory is really neat.

A great moderate hike. Can be crowded at times but usually not an issue Nice gradual change from a flatter, wide trail down low to a narrow and steeper terrain higher . Love this hike Only negative is parking

I prefer going up the trail side (south east side of the mountain) as there are far fewer people plus you get more of a leg workout. the walk down the paved road (north east side of the mountain) is a nice way to cool down after.

know that there will likely be crowds but this is a good hike that is centrally located in Phoenix . good leg burner for those looking for a workout with a view.
