  • Lovely nature park with hiking trails. Great place to go for a short walk or a longer hike. Many of the trails include hilly terrain. Beautiful, natural desert scenery. There are several picnic tables scattered about, most of them close to the parking areas, as well as a public restroom. There's also a small outdoor amphitheater.
  • I've been hiking here for over 7 years, I've also had my children's birthday parties at the picnic areas when it's not to hot out. Theres restrooms near by with plenty of parking. We love coming to the trails here. We get to enjoy Arizona's beautiful desert landscapes and wildlife. Some trails go for miles and others less, there are mile markers all along the trail. When you get to the top of the peaks you can see all of Phoenix metropolitan area. Great place to hike with your dog, ride a bike, or even ride your horse. Always make sure to bring plenty of drinking water, and wear proper hiking shoes because the trails can have pretty rough terrain. Another thing to remember is during spring and summer time there is a lot more wildlife activity going on, so be aware of your surroundings.
  • We have been hiking here since I was a kid. The trails are great, clean, and have different difficulties for every skill level. During the winter you'll find a lot of people out with animals which is nice. Plenty of parking and tons of great views of the valley. Easy to get to and just a fun place to go and be outside.
  • This was a great place for a quick hike. The park is easy to find. The parking is free. The park is dog friendly. There were several trails to choose from with varying lengths and difficulty levels. There were bathroom facilties and picnic tables. The only thing I didn't like about the park was the trails were very rocky. There were several parts of the trail that had baseball sized gravel.
  • Very easy trails with sometimes challenging rock paths. The hike is fairly easy and under two miles. The view is fantastic all around the mountain
