Great place to hike if you enjoy mountainous desert scenery. Never very crowded. Lots of options for challenging or easy hikes. No shade. No facilities. Bring lots of water!

I grew up climbing in, on, and around these rocks on these hills with cacti galore. It's a different world for those who have not had the opportunity to "be in" the desert. Close enough so you can do this when you are in Phoenix...More
