Phoenix New Times' Description

This may be our all-time favorite hike in the Valley. If you want to see the Sonoran Desert in its entire splendor, head to Usery and rock the Pass Mountain Loop hike. Just make sure it's between February and May when our unique vegetation actually looks fertile (for once). Yes, the saguaros will be tipped with white blossoms; the ocotillo will be covered in lush leaves and orange blooms; and the barrel cacti will glow with their hot pink, orange, and yellow flowers. And don't forget the Brittle Bush, and, ahem, Blue Dick that sprout from the dirt. We say, with such a rare opportunity to see some life in our desert, make the most of it with this eight-mile loop. You'll certainly get an eyeful as you wrap around the mountain's base, slowly climbing to make a steep descent on the other side.

Tips from foursquare

  • Take a moment to connect with nature and wildlife watch. Bird, mammals, plants and more...

    Buy a multi-visit or annual pass to save a few bucks!

    Move your bike over the gate, but don't try to carry it. And if you fall, always shove the bike away from you. Starting out a 7-mile ride with a busted knee is no fun!

    The Wind Cave hike is moderately difficult, but well worth the trip.

    Extreme relaxation not..hike bike...run...walk.
