The regulars know it already; if you are a visitor, this is a must-do. The hike up the mountain is well-marked and made easier by continuous switchbacks (until you reach the peak). There are also several trails around the peak for those who don't want...More

Fantastic inner-city hike with amazing views. In the summer you have to begin before sunrise but the thrill is worth it. Pack plenty of water. In fact I carry two completely frozen water bottles which melt as you hike. Perfect!

We live by the mountain and can not get enough of the views, hikes and community. Visitors, please bring plenty of water as this is not just a walk in the park.

My brother in law and I hiked up nearly to the top. It does take some effort, but the views are fantastic. Bring plenty of water, cellphone and watch for heat warnings in the summer.

This is an amazing way to see ALL OF PHOENIX from a birds eye view... HOWEVER... it is a difficult trail and you MUST take a lot of water. In the summer months, I would suggest not heading up ANY LATER than 7.00am. My husband...More

We chose an early morning hike to beat the heat and to try to catch the sunrise at 5:18am. We were surprised by how many people were already there. It was a great hike, beautiful views and we caught the last bit of sunrise on...More

We are east coasters, our hikes are usually in wooded areas so this was a nice change! It was definitely challenging since we were idiots and started at 1:30pm, but with a lot of sunscreen and water, we made it :) It took us around...More

Desert Vista trail over by Dove Valley is an easy one. I would also recommend the Apache Wash trail.

Well... It's not a smooth inclining trail. Mostly stepping on rocks of uneven heights. Depending on your comfort level and fitness level but I would say no. 😄
