I loved this quick hike! It is a gorgeous view and fun climb. We went with our 2 kids 7 and 3 and were able to hike comfortably. Highly recommend it for families!

Out exploring the area and stopped at the Hole in the Rock. It is a fairly easy hike and the view from the top is amazing with some cool photo opportunities. It is better if you go early before the heat of the day and even though the hike isn't long or too difficult, I recommend taking some water.

If you want a very good view of Phoenix, then this is the place to go. You can look out from the shade of the 'hole' so you do not have to squint to get a good southern view of Tempe & Phoenix. Half the fun is getting up there, but don't worry because the trail goes around to the back. I have seen a few people ascend from the front, but ... common sense is a wonderful thing. It took us about 20 minutes to get into the hole.

Note: Parking is limited at the hole, but within a few minutes walk there is plenty of parking in other lots scatterd about. Also, I wore sneakers and did just fine.

Spent the week in Sedona and had an hour to kill before we needed to be at the airport. Found this spot and decided to give it a try. 30 minutes was plenty of time to spend there hiking up and sitting. Views were pretty, not crowded and great for kids. Super, super easy to get to the top and back down. There were public restrooms at the park and it was right next to the zoo. Free to park.
Definitely, not a must-do attraction, but a good way to fill 30 minutes.

Just barely off the plane and already we’ve taken waaay too many pictures. Worth the stop for sure. Bring you’re climbing shoes if you’re planning on going to the top.
