Enjoy the Trails!
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 accessible trail and eventual connections to Skyline Regional Park’s neighbor to the north – Maricopa County’s White Tank Mountain Regional Park as well as to the adjacent communities.Download or Print Trail Map
"Happy Trails" Checklist
Before you head out to enjoy the beautiful trails here at Skyline Regional Park, please take a minute to review the "Happy Trails" Checklist to ensure you have a great experience in our Sonoran desert park. Please use common sense and be courteous while on the trails.
Watch the Weather
Yes, “it’s a dry heat” – but Arizona’s temperature can be deceiving and dangerous. Hit the trails when it’s cool outside, try early mornings and evenings when there’s more shade.
Wear proper shoes, clothing, hat and sunscreen.
Hydrate before you go and have plenty of water with you while you are on the trails. Turn around and head back to the trailhead before half your water is gone.
Keep in Contact
Carry a mobile phone and tell someone your start and end times and locations if you’re hitting the trails alone. Better yet, grab a friend. It’s safer and more fun to enjoy the trails with others.
Know Your Limits
Do you have a medical condition? Asthma, heart problems, diabetes, knee or back problems? Don’t push yourself! Choose a trail that is within your ability and your time in the park will be more enjoyable.
Enjoy the Sonoran Desert’s beautiful and undeveloped landscape, but always stay on designated trails.
It's Wild Out There
The park is open and undeveloped desert with rocky terrain, snakes, and cacti. Look ahead and around you and avoid putting your hands and feet anywhere you cannot see. Observe wildlife from a distance and never approach, feed or follow them..
Share the Trail
Follow trail etiquette with other users. In general, bike riders yield to both hikers and horseback riders; hikers yield to horseback riders. However, for all trail users, downhill yields to uphill.
