So many lovely trails for Spring and winter hikes. The desert is brutal in the summer heat but spring mornings and winter days you will find the great outdoors enjoyable with wildlife and vistas at every turn.

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

Trails for all ages and types of people. Great scenery and solitude w/o having to leave the city. We went on a Monday afternoon, and we had the trail to ourselves most of the time. Several trail options with varying levels of difficulty.

This is a place to get away. It's close in and convenient, but relatively deserted. Easy non strenuous hiking especially great for running a dog. Be careful of the sun and the rare snake
