Trails and Mountains
So you want to hike or run the trails in Phoenix? Good news...you're in the right spot!
The Phoenix metropolitan area has over 42,000 acres of parks and mountain preserves. Those parks and preserves consist of over 300+ miles of trails -- a very conservative estimate, considering many trails are two-in-one (clockwise and counter-clockwise). The interconnecting trail systems throughout the city (and state!) also allows for creating a nearly endless array of unique and interesting routes to run and hike.
Below, you will find information and links to the various parks, mountains, preserves, forests and infamous trails in and around the greater Phoenix area. This list is an evolving resource that will continue to improve over time.
