Guide to the best things to do

South Mountain Park and Preserve, a few miles south of downtown Phoenix and buttressing urban neighborhoods such as Laveen and Ahwatukee Foothills, is one of the largest municipal parks in the country.

Covering over 16,000 acres and containing over 50 miles of trails, South Mountain Park has recreation opportunities for everyone. You can hike, mountain bike and ride horseback. 

The mountain was significant to ancient people as well. The Hohokam people, who lived in the Salt and Gila river valleys hundreds of years ago, left their mark in the form of petroglyphs. Visitors who look carefully can spot them along several trails.

South Mountain Park has ‘a sense of wilderness’

Jerry Owens, who has been a Phoenix park ranger for over six years, loves that South Mountain Park gives visitors a feeling of being deep in the desert.
