Likely In-Season!
Papago Park Walking Path is a 3.1 mile one way loop hike with 136 feet accumulated elevation gain. Located 9 miles southeast of Phoenix Arizona. The trailhead is car accessible. March and February are the best months to enjoy this hike.

This loop is a relatively new addition to the trail system in Papago Park. It combines existing and social trails to circle the area northwest of Galvin Parkway and Priest in Phoenix. The trail is six feet wide, constructed mostly of a crushed rock/dirt mix, with a few short sections paved where crossing a wash. The trail is signed 5K on posts. It's smooth and has little elevation change. Good for trail running, mountain or even road biking, in addition to hiking. Some of the old par course equipment has been moved near the trail.

Check out the Official Route.
