My husband and I found this park while in AZ for a wedding. We wanted to do some light hiking as the scenery is a different type of beauty than what we're used to on the East Coast. You do have to pay a fee to enter the park (I believe it was $6 per car) but they did have... More

We're now snowbirds, and spend the 6 months of the cool season in Gilbert, about a 20 minute drive from the main parking area of this park. We've now hiked, trail run or mountain biked on every trail in the park, now multiple times. There are people around, but not that many, so you never feel crowded. There's enough of... More

We have hiked the entire park several times (not all in one day) and return again and again each time we visit Arizona. The park is well maintained, the staff are informative. We have participated in a group hike with a guide and although we had been to the park many times we learned things about the park that we... More

Well maintained trails and a variety off hiking experiences for the novice to the pro. You can hike for miles or have a casual short walk admiring the beautiful scenery. Get out of your chair and give it a try!

I am not much of a hiker but there are several easy to moderate trails to walk of various lengths in this park. We had a very pleasant afternoon on the trails. It did not seem crowded even though we were there on a weekend. We will return. It is very scenic. The trails are established and easy to follow.

Really superb trails, clearly marked and well maintained. Great views from the peaks with different levels of complexity and ample of options for gentle strolls or arduous hikes! People sometimes complain about the $6 parking fee but where else offers entertainment for 6 people for over three hours at $0.33 per hour? They provide maps each time if you need... More

Variety of trails for everyone in the family. The Goldmine Mountain hiking is considered a black diamond trail, but was definitely worth it. Hardest part is at the end of trail and the views are spectacular

There were lots of trails to choose from. You can find their trail map online to get a feel of where and how long you want to go. We did the Goldmine trail which overlooks the city. It was a great hike and not too long. My parents were able to make it up and down with several small breaks.... More

So many trails and walking areas! there was a fee to get parked but the area was just beautiful and kept fairly natural. Lots of area, a good few hours of wandering around too.
