Tips from locals
The great view of Phoenix. You have to climb a small hill. It can be done within 15 minutes. It is ageless, very easy climb. Great scenic photo place of Phoenix. Papago Park offers many trails in the desert. Go in early morning. Always take water with you!
This is the best spot in the city to watch the sunset. It is about a five-minute drive from the unit. Definitely worth checking out one night. It is worth the hike up to watch from the "the hole"
Hole-in-the-Rock is a natural geological formation in Papago Park, a municipal park of Phoenix and Tempe, Arizona.
Unique spot in Papago Park to watch sunset from an elevated red sandstone platform made by erosion

“A medium to difficult hike in the middle of the city. Not for the faint of heart. Hike to the top of Piestewa Peak for sweeping views of the Valley of the Sun! The trailhead is located at 2701 East Squaw Peak Lane, Phoenix, AZ 85016. Bring lots of water! ”
