Amazing walk through various flowers, fauna and cactus of the desert. Stop for Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner at Gertrudes for a nice break and good food! Plan on a 2-3 hour stroll through the Gardens with docents at various "stations" to provide educational information! Truly memorable!

Trail
“Absolute best spot on a mountain to view the Phoenix Valley. Be aware, although it is a short hike, the trek can be rather steep in some areas. Moderate-high difficulty level. Very popular hike in the city so hike out early if you'd prefer to avoid crowds.”

Trail
“Beautiful area of ponds, pinic areas, bike trails and hike trails. Their are a few parks with ponds to check out some Arizona wildlife. The Hole-in-the-Rock is the reddish mountain formation. The hike trail there is easy and short, but again, a popular spot for sunset views of Tempe.”
