Took the kids here on while in Phoenix for two days. Definitely a place to visit if you don’t have a lot of time. Good views, short walk, and gives you a flavor of what the desert is like and what other longer hiking trails...More

It gets crowded quickly, especially on weekends. Easy hike for everyone. Absolutely gorgeous views and great place to take out of town visitors.

You can climb to the "Hole" and wander about, but the park and trails are littered and crowded. A better outing is to the Botanical Gardens next door (fee) or South Mountain Park a few minutes away.

We stopped on a lark - so worth it! Just keep driving up towards it - you'll pass several lots but there's a lot right underneath the rock. Easy path up and I'm not a good trail climber. View through the hole is awesome!

This is a fun nature area that you can walk or hike. Lots of great views. You can make it a cautious or more daring trip depending on the path (or not) you choose. Several people brought dogs. Very close to the zoo so easy...More

Very nice park. We had a picnic lunch and then hiked up to the hole in the rock. Beautiful view from the top, even for someone scared of heights.

This is located in the Papago Park next the zoo. It is a short and easy climb up this sandstone hill that has various holes and cave like features. It is rumored that the local Indians used it as a solar calendar to help tell...More

Hi, this is a easy walk from the zoo to the hole in the rock. From there to the botanical garden it is recommended to take the short bus ride as taxi might be difficult that outside town. If you walk it will be 20 minutes.
