Hike to Hidden Valley via The Mormon Loop Trail

Mormon Loop Trail

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.

Pretty Cool

Easy hike and crowded when it's nice out
