Wonderful trails. Difficulty is minimal. I hike camelback every Saturday and hike one of the trails here every other day just to keep conditioned. You can up the difficulty by running the trails or adding the ankle weights. Perfect length if you need to squeeze in some cardio before work.

It's a small mountain for those who are into training for the harder ones around Phoenix.

Great mix of trails for all levels of hiking and biking. Views from the top are great and a feeling of accomplishment. Fun for walking running or biking and pictures. Free parking and easy to find your way. Clean and well worth an early morning or afternoon trip.

A good park with a couple different trails from which to choose. My daughter and I like hiking it up to the top and checking out the lovely view of the valley.

Enjoyed my hike on H-3. It's 3 miles long and, I believe, you gain elevation of about 630 feet. I didn't think it would be as much of a challenge as it was since I often see families walking the trails when I drive by. I was quite surprised to see the number of children hiking this trail, and doing well! Start-em young!
The view is all residential but you can see about 23 miles away!
I did see a couple of lizards while hiking but no other wildlife. Easy parking and free.

Great hiking trail you can walk to right in the neighborhood. You'll hike along the base of the mountain over looking the homes on the lake it takes about an hour if you do the whole trail.
