Best Hikes for Kids in Phoenix: City of Phoenix Edition. We’re excited to launch a mini-series of posts covering kid-friendly hikes to enjoy – and a different area each week. (Upcoming in the series: Scottsdale, and East Valley. West Valley hikes can be viewed here.) Bookmark for reference and tag your Phoenix friends!

This post has all the best hikes in Phoenix – as in having the location address of Phoenix, AZ. Hiking is a great way to soak up this beautiful winter weather, explore the desert, and get exercise as a family!

Remember, a trail might be 3 miles, but you can only go 1 mile if that fits your family better. Bring water, hats, and sunscreen – and have fun!

Reviews on most of these hikes can be found on our website. Alternatively, we have linked to other helpful posts.
