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.

Gdzie będziecie

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! Knew all the little details and off trail photo ops! Not only that, took us to all the cool highlights on the trail. He even took cool photos and videos of us. Before the hike, he contacted me to ensure our group could get the best out of this hike depending on our experience. Could not recommend a better guide! He’s also very knowledgeable in hiking in and around Arizona!

Was a great time! David was a great host and worth every penny! He knew of all the great places for photos and extra slightly off trail photo ops. He took photos and videos for us so we could have all of us in the photos. He was very knowledgeable about the trails and overall a great experience.

My experience with David was phenomenal. I was able to walk away learning much more than I intended. David was very knowledgeable and can definitely see he has a passion for what he does.

Prior to my hike David was in contact with me asking me appropriate questions about my hiking ability. Due to the fact that it rained for 4 days prior to my hike we decided to change locations of my hike so I can see a gorgeous waterfall. The hike was tough at the beginning but was well worth it. David is very knowledgeable about a lot of the trails in the Phoenix and Tempe area. Lots of great information!

Dave was an excellent tour guide. He’s very knowledgeable about the area and the specifics of the trail we hiked. He was very friendly and hiked at our pace. Knowing we were on vacation he made sure we stopped at all the best spots for photo opportunities. Thanks Dave; we will look for future experiences with you again.

What a wonderful experience! The Mormon Trail is not too hard, but challenging enough to feel like I got a good workout! And it’s just gorgeous right now popping with wildflowers galore! We watched the sun rise at the start of the hike, and watched as the desert animals woke up - mostly little lizards and ground squirrels. I REALLY hoped to see a rattlesnake, but no such luck! Ha ha! AND I was able to squeeze through Fatman’s Pass! You’ll have to sign up for this hike for that last sentence to make any sense! David is a long-time hiking guide with Meetup dot com and seems quite knowledgeable about all the trails here, and about central Arizona in general, having lived here for 20+ years. He has speed and stamina but never raced off and left me; I felt safe the entire time. He says he’ll take us to any trail, so next time I hope to try a new (to me!) trail. If you do nothing else while you’re in Phoenix, at least go hiking with David!
