This is one of our favorite simple hikes to do when we visit the Phoenix Zoo. It is easily doable with all ages, just a quick walk/hike up to the Hole-in-the-Rock at Papago Park. We’ve done it as a family, and also with other families – including 10 kids between the ages of 7-newborn!
On a busy day – parking can be a tad difficult with loads of other hikers, but we’ve also been able to park right at the base and be the only ones there! If you want it to yourselves, be sure you hit an early morning weekday
This is not even a half mile hike! So this is super simple for the kids to enjoy and not whine
There are so many beautiful area for photos, and the views of the Phoenix area are amazing!
