Beautiful, Rustic. Great hiking. Gateway to the old Indian Massacre Grounds. Fabulous scenery. Waterfalls in Winter and Spring. Explore abandoned mines!

This is a perfect "mini hike" for families or groups with smaller children. There is parking available and paths that lead you along the hike. Since the mountain is outside of the city madness, there is less of a "view" than other hikes in the...More

Most of us would call it a dirt road with a dead end. If you want to go take a hike to nowhere, this is your dream come true. Dirt, dust, rocks and a couple bushes spread out across a knoll. The mountain eroded away...More

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.

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...More

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,...More

It has been a month or so since I've been there but I would say yes, I usually did the harder part of the hike first (not really that bad, but it is the steepest), and then once you go up over the top you will go to the... More
