Co będziecie robić

We will meet at the trailhead in south Phoenix and hike up Mormon Trail in South Mountain Park Preserve, one of the largest city parks in the nation. This is a climb, right out of the parking lot, with great views of the Phoenix area. I like doing this hike at sunrise for the great views and lighting, but alternate times are available. Once we reach the top of the climb, it's rolling hills and some flat desert hiking until we reach Fat Man's Pass, the beginning of Hidden Valley where we'll squeeze through two boulders that make up Fat Man's Pass into beautiful and secluded hidden valley. We are likely to see some wildlife anywhere on this hike but especially so in Hidden Valley. Many neat features and rock formations in Hidden valley, including a spot where we get on our rear ends and slide about 6 feet down a slick rock. We'll leave Hidden Valley through a natural tunnel, see a couple petroglyphs, and then begin to head back down. I know all the great spots (including some off-trail spots) for talking amazing photos. All told this is about a 4.2 mile hike and slightly under 1000 foot accumulated elevation gain. Other trails are also available. Please contact me for alternate times or hikes.

Hidden valley featured lots of flora and fauna, ocotillo and saguaro cacti, a chance to encounter wildlife, a natural tunnel, a "slide" we have to slide down and "Fat man's pass", two boulders we squeeze through in order to get into the valley.

David was a great guide. As a solo traveler I enjoyed having the personal treatment and safety/security. David was an excellent hiker and took me off trail for special views that I would not have seen on my own without getting lost.

This was an amazing experience to do! David did and amazing job guiding the group through the trail and was kind enough to show us good spots to take pictures in. David communicates really well and can provide recommendations around Arizona for travelers. David enjoys being of service to others overall, so hiking with him was a great choice!

David was amazing from booking all the way through to the experience. He was patient with a group of three girls who wanted to take lots of pictures and were pretty inexperienced hikers. I would recommend him and would do different hikes with him as a guide. He showed lots of beautiful sights along the way that would’ve been totally missed without him!

Perfect morning hike for mid spring in Phoenix! The basic trail is fine for novices (make sure to wear good shoes) and David will point out a few more challenging options which you can try if you want. David is knowledgeable about the area and will gladly share tips for restaurants and other things to see and do. And he's patient with birders and other folks who like to stop and take longer looks. Very glad I signed up.

David was an awesome guide. I’m a New Yorker, adventurous, but inexperienced when it comes to hiking. He personalized the trip for us, took great pics, and made it an exceptional experience for us. I wish I would have booked this earlier on my trip so that I could have capitalized on all the advice he had to offer about experiencing Arizona. Highly recommended!
