Great and easy last minute hike, but was rewarded with a great view of the valley. Needs to be cleaned a bit more often, and maybe add a safety fence or something.

We brought my grandson here for some photos. The grounds are absolutely beautiful by the Hole in the Rock with nearby duck pond. I would definitely come back with the family for more pics or just to walk the grounds.

The Hole In The Rock is located in Papago Park in Phoenix. The Hole is actually a Hole the goes thru this hill and is great for sightseeing and selfies. Wear hiking shoes. Jolly Chriss.

We took the short walk/hike up the hill to the hole in the rock. It was a really nice spot to sit for a spell and enjoy the sunset.

This is in Papago Park and is only one of many hiking trails. This is quite easy to climb and my kids loved it.

The hike is steep but short. The view is amazing! While the hike is short, remember to bring water. Great short hike to do with kids.

This was a nice easy hike in Phoenix, and had a nice view once you got to the top. Even though it is not a long hike, remember to bring water!

This is a quick pic spot. The hike is easy even in Birks. Loved this little park. We went at sunset time and it was gorgeous.

Hi, this is a easy walk from the zoo to the hole in the rock. From there to the botanical garden it is recommended to take the short bus ride as taxi might be difficult that outside town. If you walk it will be 20 minutes.

Yes, it is safe. However, there is no lighting so I would suggest going during the day. I went during day and night and you can easily trip and fall on the rocks while climbing. Nothing is truly safe when you are rock... More
