Why locals recommend it
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.

Excellent hiking area without much elevation change. Beautiful desert landscapes without leaving the city. Great for light exploring or beginner/family hiking. TIP: Visit the Desert Botanical Gardens next-door for more curated/educational desert plant exploration.

Hiking, golf, and endless walking and biking paths. Just an 8 minute drive or 20 minute bike ride from The Kimsey House. Miles of flat trails with some spectacular views of Phoenix. Check out the hole in the rock - a quick hike up the hill.

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.”

Botanical Garden
“For a peaceful walk with beautiful scenery I’ve been here several times. And during part of the warmer times of the year there are so many butterflies to be seen nearby. Around the Christmas holidays they normally have live music Christmas lights and my favorite was the hot apple cider drinks.”
