San Tan Mountain Regional Park Reviews
The weather was unseasonably cool which allowed us to bring our out of town guests outdoors for a desert walk. So many lengths and levels of difficulty (easy included). So many opportunities for photo... more »
Lovely local park with great trails for hiking and horse back riding. Only downside is the mountain bikers crowding out the hikers and horseback riders. more »
Awesome place for hiking. They have a ton of trails. Besides a few piles of horse poo it seems pretty clean. Friendly staff in the main hut. They do have a few amenities. There is a fee per car per day I believe.
I love this mountain for hiking, mountain biking, and getting out of the house with the kids. I’ve been on every trail many times and rode every trail on my bike in one setting one day and it took 24 miles. Great desert views over the southeast valley. It’s also has the smoothest trails for mountain biking if you’re trying to get away from all the rocks in Arizona. There are 2 main entrances one from the north and the other from the east. The entrance from the south is hardly used. It’s also interesting to watch fireworks during the 4th of July if you like a quieter show and 700 different events all over the valley. They also have reptiles on display to see at the east entrance which is great for the kids to enjoy. We captured a rare snow storm on the Superstition Mountains in the background on 2-22-19.
