Hiking


Trails – 16 miles of trails for use by hikers, mountain bikers, and equestrians.

The Skyline Regional Park trail system is designed to provide an experience that meets the needs of each user, while also assuring a safe trail experience for all. Trails are of varying lengths and difficulty levels, allowing for a variety of use.

Trails are located to synchronize and blend with their environments, promote sustainability and safety, with minimal impact on ecosystems and cultural features, and frame the natural beauty of their surroundings. With the exception of select Summit Trails in challenging terrain, all trails are shared use for hikers, mountain bikers and equestrians.

Future plans for the trail system include an eventual connection to Skyline Regional Park’s neighbor to the north – Maricopa County’s White Tank Mountain Regional Park as well as to the adjacent communities.
