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.

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

Love Silly mountain. A very nice place to visit. I loved the botanical type walk around the base of the mountain. Place cards stationary to let you know what type of vegetation, trees, cactus, etc.., there are in the Sonoran desert. Perfect for everyone of...More

We loved this trail! Gets your heart rate up hiking the steep parts, offers amazing views of the Superstitions, and benches tucked in just the right places to rest and enjoy the scenery along the way.

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
