  • Great place to hike. We were in for spring training and were looking for good short hikes. Good summit and loop trail. Well kept and clean. Good views.
  • This mountain is great! There are multiple options for trails but overall it's a fairly easy hike. The parking lot is pretty small so on the weekends it can be hard to get a spot.
  • I'm guessing Paul McCartney was singing about Lookout Mountain when he serenaded us with, "the long and winding road, that leads me to your summit". Well, it seems that The Walrus had a flair for exaggeration. While the path was truly winding, it really wasn't that long. Total time up and back was 29:18. Pretty easy hike.
  • Coyotes, jackrabbits and great horned owls all call this little mountain home. You can hear the owls at sunset on most winter nights, coyotes year-round, and nightjars in the spring. The roadrunners, kestler falcons and 2 species of owls aren't around anymore because the dense brush is gone. Remember to enjoy the desert. The parking lot has 20 spaces, one is for handicap parking. There's another parking area on the southeast side with 40-50 spaces at Lookout Mountain Park
  • What a great place to hike in the winter. Just dont lose your belogings up here like i did
