Какво ще правите

Let's explore South Mountain Preserve and discover Hidden Valley. We'll hike about 2-3 hours, travel a total of 3.8 miles, and gain 1,000 feet of elevation to discover a magical spot in the middle of the mountain.

Our adventure begins with a climb but offers amazing views right away. As we continue to gain elevation we’ll see local landmarks like Four Peaks, Camelback Mountain, Piestewa Peak, and Downtown Phoenix.

Surrounded by fantastic rock formations as we climb even higher, we’ll stop to learn about the Sonoran Desert’s unique geological history, vegetation, and wildlife. We'll see Saguaros, wild flowers, Barrel and Prickly Pear cacti. We may even spot a family of Quails, a Zebra Tailed Lizard, or Jack Rabbits running across the trail.

After we’ve reached our highest elevation we’ll squeeze through Fat Man’s Pass (a narrow pass through a giant boulder created by a powerful wash) and descend into Hidden Valley. Here we will be completely secluded from city views and surrounded by birds, butterflies, and fresh herbal air. We’ll take a moment here to enjoy in the beauty of the desert.

We'll stop again to examine ancient petro glyph sites created by the Hohokom, sometime between 350 - 1500 AD. Next, we’ll rock scramble a bit before we hike to a natural rock tunnel. Finally, we’ll enjoy more views of the valley on the way down the mountain.
Other things to note
Beginner hikers can enjoy this hike, but should participate in some regular physical activity. We will hike 3.8 miles with 1000ft elevation gain in 3 hours. Guests with heart conditions or joint issues should not participate.

This hike was a perfect way to start our trip. Everything was absolutely amazing from the views to the conversation. Janelle made sure to cater the hike to our skill level and made sure that we remained safe throughout the hike. She is extremely knowledgeable about the land, vegetation, and history of the area. Don’t think twice, book with her during your stay!

The trail to the hidden valley on South Mountain was a challenging, beautiful hike, and Janelle was an exceptional guide. The views and the changing landscape along the way are spectacular, and there are also opportunities to learn about the flora and fauna encountered on the trail. Janelle was fantastic; she has extensive knowledge of the area's geography and geology, she was professional, personable and organized, and she made sure all members of the group had a safe and enjoyable experience. I was looking for a somewhat challenging hike with beautiful views, and this experience did not disappoint. It was a highlight of my stay in Phoenix. I highly recommend this hike with Janelle as your guide.

Janelle was amazing. She quickly sensed the desires and abilities of our small group and ensured the hike to Hidden Valley was challenging yet enjoyable and informative. Janelle mixes the perfect amount of enlightening dialogue on the geography of the Sonoran Desert and South Mountain, with those off-trail mini adventures only a local guide can provide. A wonderful experience!

Amazing experience, Janelle was an excellent guide with incredible knowledge about the geography of the area. She was very good on communicating to us about how the hike will go and what things we’ll need (water, clothing etc.) we also had great conversations. I got some of the best views on this hike in my time in Arizona

We had a great hike with Janelle. She is knowledgeable, organized and very personable. We had two healthy 58 yr olds and two 17 yr old girls. It was a nice hike but very reasonable. Nice views of Phoenix looking north. Would recommend this hike for anyone visiting Phoenix.
