Steep walk but go early or last light. Yes near the zoo but great views and feel the heat. Caution signs for BEE activity so be aware.

Short hike. Well worth it! We took the light rail and then the bus to the zoo parking lot and walked from there. We were able to be at the Hole by ourselves for about 15 minutes! Awesome view and very peaceful!

Great place to climb up to watch the sunset. My daughter is 7 and had no trouble at all climbing to the top. Slippery shoes not recommended as there are many loose rocks on the trail. Wear shoes with tread. It takes less then 5 minutes to climb. Up top is very large opening in which you can enter. Just down the road from this park is the Phoenix Zoo and Botanical Gardens.

You hike up a little steep hill, make sure to wear shoes rocks are sharp. You get to the hole and it's so windy! ! You can see for miles, the city and airport. The sunset is very cool

A quick (but sometimes steep) hike within Papago Park. The park and the trail are well-maintained and the view is great once you get to the top. Watch out for bees (the area with bees is marked). In the current very hot weather it's probably best to visit in the early part of the morning.
