This natural formation is a great photo op for most that visit. It has great views from the top or bottom. DO NOT be intimidated by the climb though as it is very gradual and easy for most.

We stumbled across this location not even knowing it existed. It caught our eye when we were headed to The Phoenix Zoo but it was closed. The rock/mountain is an easy climb and an amazing spot to watch the sunset, desert mountains and see planes...More

Ok, I'm one of the tourists making this place a tourist trap. But even as a tourist, I generally dislike crowded places, and this place was super-crowded when my wife and I went. It was hard to even make the very short hike up to...More

It was a fun trek to see the hole in the rock. If it is a hot day bring some water because you will need it.

I bragged all day that I “climbed a mountain!” It was a fun, short hike. The trails in the park have beautiful views and native landscapes. The rock formations are impressive, there are a variety of cacti and bushes. The water and palms were nice...More

We had an unexpected layover in Phoenix airport and had a short time to visit. Going here at sunset was so much fun.
