This is a must when in Phoenix. Even though the park was very crowed, we walked around the side of the "hole in the rock" that most people did not walk to. We weren't able to go up to the hole because of the number...More

This is a very short and easy hike to what is called the Hole in the Rock. We went before noon on a weekday in the winter so didn't have too many other people there (but there was a wait to grab a picture). They...More

Nice trails with a nice view! Easy to find your way around and facilities. Close to the city and easy to find.

Good family outing place, but not all that interesting. Nice scenery, good trails, but not all that impressive.

We love coming here and have been coming here for years. We love to climb to the hole in the rock and get some great photos. It was much more crowded this year but that could’ve just been the timing.

I enjoyed my walk through Papago Park, It was a nice stroll and we hiked up to the hole in the rock and saw some amazing views.

Although sometimes packed with tourists, Papago Park is a great spot for a quick walk up the hill (not difficult at all, there are steps) to go through the 'hole in the wall' and get nice view of the metro- Phoenix area.

Hole in the rock is quite interesting. You walk thru it after climbing a short trail of 500 feet. It started raining so we didn't see rest of the park

We had some free time to fill while visiting Phoenix so we stopped by Papago Park. There are several trails and a few spots where you can actually climb the sandstone. We saw several runners and cyclists enjoying the routes. The only downside is that...More
