  • We recently visited San Tan Mountain RP for the first time and had a wonderful hiking experience. We visited on a Sunday afternoon in December and although some of the reviews warned about the trails getting busy we didn't find that to be the case on our visit. We are recent transplants to Arizona and wanted somewhere we can begin to hike safely on our own but also spend a lot of time outdoors. This park was perfect. There are a number of trails and most are in the beginner/ moderate category. They interlink and are well marked and so you can have a hiking experience almost as long or as short as you wish. The visitor center was useful, with leaflets, books, and local information and also had snacks and water available. The restrooms were clean and located beside the visitor center. We will definitely be back to this park regularly.
  • We always enjoy hiking the goldmine trail. The only thing to watch out for on the other trails are the trains of bikes . There were a few classes of teenagers on bikes that were 10 or more. They are very courteous but you need to remember to give them the right of way and be watching and listening for them. Outside of that the area is beautiful and trails are kept up.
