Definitely worth it if you're in the area. A good hike and worth the view! Don't forget to bring good walking shoes and water! Hiked it all 3 times we were in Scottsdale, and will go back on our next trip.

Good views and nice hike and not to strenuous compared to some hikes. It's a nice couples hike with opportunities for pics. It is a bit of a drive but worth it.

Lots of fodder for photographers - diverse plant life, great shadows. It's a popular trail. I hiked it on #optoutside Friday. The general vibe was really nice! highly recommended for most skill levels (easy hike).

Moderately Challenging Hike. The trail zig zags up the side of the mountain and you see beautiful scenery and wildlife. The only thing I didn't like was the trail didn't loop, you hiked to the end then had to turn around and go back the same trail which left for a lot of passing

This is a great hike for any skill level. The 1.75 Miles leaves you at a different end of the trail so it's 3.5 miles round-trip. However, you can decide to turn back at whatever point suits you. We usually hike a mile in and then turn around. There are beautiful views all around you on this hike! The trail... More

My wife and I hiked the out and back in about an hour on a Saturday. Nice views and was a moderate effort. Probably not for the unfit, but most people will do fine. Be sure to bring plenty of water and remember it is an out and back hike - around 3.5 miles round trip.

This is the perfect hike for those who don't have a lot of time or who have never hiked in the desert. Challenging in some spots - it will get your heart rate up - but also with some easier slopes as it winds around the peak. We went on a Saturday, so it was a little crowded but people... More

Love this park, most beautiful hike, plenty of variety and scenic views. The park offer rangers who will answer questions, rest rooms and shade. do not have to walk far to view million dollar homes, mountains and wildlife.

Hiked at Pinnacle Peak Park this past weekend. Fellow Trip Advisors noted this as a moderate hike, which it is although there are definitely some strenuous patches. On the advice of other reviewers, we arrived early and were glad we did as it got busy very quickly. A great hike with terrific views. Well worth it!

Wonderful park and trail in Scottsdale with fabulous docents to answer and assist you. We hiked to Owl's Rest at their suggestion as it is just short of a mile out and the last three quarters to the edge of the park is quite vigorous. This was the ever so appropriate suggestion by our host. Very well marked and maintained... More
