This mountain is really close to where I live and work so it is great for a quick hike and return to nature. It has some beautiful views and many trails. You will only climb a few hundred feet but it is still a nice place to go. It is great for beginners as well.

This is a great place to hike! There are numerous trails that you can hike! There are hike that are easy and there are hikes that are difficult! If it is going to be hot make sure you go in the AM and bring water!!

Our family from out of state, who like to hike, went up the mountain and enjoyed the scenery all the way to the top.. They enjoyed the hike as we went earlier in the day before heat was an issue..

Easy access, near Mesa and Apache Jtn. Several routes for short hikes. You get a workout. Lots of people around, so doesn't feel remote. Botanical garden is very informative Want to take a snack and go watch sunset soon.

My wife and I are able bodied seniors and wanted to see what was silly about Silly Mountain. We enjoyed the short easy flat walk along botanical trail. The trail had identification markers near various native plants. We noticed as we walked higher, the trail got more rugged and the mountain rocks got larger. I did locate the old abandoned... More

Several trails, a couple more vertical than the others. No gear required - other than water, a hat and good shoes. Do NOT try this in the summer or heat of the day! It's easy going, but in the intense heat and sunshine, you could suffer. Go early morning, or Fall-Winter. Enjoy a walk in the park.

I hiked with a group of friends who were at various skill levels. This hike provided a mix of easy, moderate and challenging trail, some of it quite rocky. We hiked early in the day, took things slow, and stopped often. It wasn't too warm, so one 20 oz. bottle of water was enough for each person. I like to... More

Love Silly mountain. A very nice place to visit. I loved the botanical type walk around the base of the mountain. Place cards stationary to let you know what type of vegetation, trees, cactus, etc.., there are in the Sonoran desert. Perfect for everyone of all ages

We loved this trail! Gets your heart rate up hiking the steep parts, offers amazing views of the Superstitions, and benches tucked in just the right places to rest and enjoy the scenery along the way.
