“largest municipal park in the country”

At more than 16,000 acres, South Mountain Park/Preserve is one of the largest municipally operated parks in the country, according to the Trust for Public Land. It boasts 51 miles of primary trails for horseback riding, hiking and mountain biking for all ability levels. From the park's main entrance, you can drive up the Summit Road 5.5 miles to Dobbins Lookout and spectacular valleywide views or you can continue to the Gila Lookout for a view of the Gila River Valley. This scenic road is shared by bikers and hikers and there are many steep sections and blind curves, so maximum speed is 25 mph and just 15 mph on curves.

Lots of cool views of downtown Phoenix and the surrounding area. Many different look-out points and various trails for different skill levels. When we went, we were stopped from the highest look out by a park ranger due to sink holes on the mountain--but he was super friendly and didn't deter us from returning. It's free to enter the park.
