It's a nice place to visit, but nothing much special about it. There a bit of walking to reach that place. Most of the times its very crowded as the where the hole is, is very limited.

We have been here before. It is a very easy hike and a great picture site too. There is a picnic area, along with bathrooms. A short walk away there is also a little fishing pond. This place is perfect for families. The zoo is...More

This place is not as secret as it once used to be, but it's still worth your time if you're already in the area and looking for a quick place to explore. Do NOT come here in the summer though, save it for fall/winter time,...More

Had fun with my photography group taking pictures and climbing around on the rocks. The caretakers do a great job of keeping the place nice. Great place to take the family.

It's cool if you want to hike up there to get your photo made inside but Phoenix is so hot that I opted out. The park surrounding is a pretty desert park

Glad we visited. The walk from the parking lot was short and easy. We enjoyed the views from the top and were pleasantly surprised to have the place to our self. We went on the 4th of July and the parking lots were all closed...More

For someone not used to the Arizona weather and landscape, this is a must go. The hike itself was not challenging but the 115 degrees made my family and me feel like heroes once we got to the top.
