Phoenix, Arizona Map

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.

Good aerobic hike. Fun to add on going on National Trail to the Stone House.

Great hike with beautiful views. Parking was tough because it was so busy, but there was street parking down the road on the neighborhood side streets.

This hike was rated as moderate and I believe it was more moderate/difficult. The switch backs to the top of Pyramid Mountain were a bit challenging but definitely worth the challenge and a wonderful feeling of accomplishment when completed. Some very pretty views along the way and once on top. Trail is marked very well.

Great workout! I was shocked how difficult it was the first time, but went a second time a couple of days later and seems to go a lot smoother! It’s a great hike if you’re limited on time, but still want to get a great work out.

really nice trail...
just dont do it in summer...

Great easy to moderate hike with a little elevation too. Great quick hiking, and pet friendly.

This trail sucks so bad. It should be nice, but the people and surrounding area make it terrible. First, fat ghetto girls dancing on the trail while carrying a stereo and blasting rap music. Secondly, it’s right next to the gun range so all you hear the entire time is gun shots like a war zone. So unless you want to feel like you’re hiking in Compton, with gun shots and rap music, I’d recommend another trail. Too bad. Hiking should be about relaxing in nature and exploring. Trashy people ruin everything good that this world has.

No access to this trail

Great views along the way but a very crowded trail. Took me less than 2 hours to hike up and back.

Good hike, and beautiful day! January is a wonderful time of year to hike. This hike is generally difficult, but it isn’t nearly as difficult as those it’s in the same category as (FlatIron, Battleship, etc. I loved the view from Dobbins EXT, but it’s almost disappointing to get up there and realize that drivers can make it to this spot!
Oh well. Enjoy

nice trail, gives u flat walking and hiking up trails ,seen a kinds of wildlife!
