Hike to Hidden Valley via The Mormon Loop Trail

Arizona Mormon Loop Trail

Added by

This hike features stunning views and interesting rock formations. It's also dog friendly. 

This is a great spot for an afternoon hike near Phoenix. There are some beautiful rock formations, nice trails, and pretty stunning views of the city and desert beyond. It's open year round and is dog friendly so if you've got a pup, definitely bring it along. It gets super hot in the summer and with little shade, you'll want to be sure to bring plenty of water.

Make It A Weekday If You Can

Mandatory local hike that you must check off your list. Worth a return or two for sure. Busy on the weekends as you would imagine, attempt on a weekday if a bit more solitude is what you seek.

Hike to Fay Canyon Arch

Arizona / Fay Canyon Trail

...The hike through Fay Canyon goes 1.25 miles to Box Canyon and is rated easy to moderate. To see Fay Canyon Arch though is a much shorter hike. From Boynton Pass Rd, park at Fay Canyon parking lot.

...For this very short stroll to Elephant Arch, I'd like to clarify that it's more of a sightseeing and/or photo opportunity trip than a hiking trip.
