Papago Buttes

Papago Park

Total Time:
1 Hour
Total Distance: 1.6 Miles

This was more of a nature walk then a hike. Papago Park, located within the city of Phoenix, has some really strange sandstone formations and caves within its short mountains. I think these are called the Papago Buttes. At least that is what it says on the USGS map. We hiked through some of the interesting formations and caves, as well as up the spine of the main mountain.

I took my baby on this hike in a backpack.
He loved it!
