Likely In-Season!
Overview
Fish Creek Hill is a 2.2 mile round trip hike with 100 feet elevation gain. Located 25 miles east-northeast of Mesa Arizona. Trailhead access is via a dirt road which is typically car accessible when dry. March and November are the best months to enjoy this hike.


This simple hike offers the most bang for your buck. From Fish Creek Hill Vista it's off-trail but only 0.4 miles out to the best points. The twin peaks offer nice views as does the boardwalk ridge seen below. Beware of seriously dangerous exposure near the edge.


Note
Hike is NOT recommended for dogs or children. Your hike will vary in length depending on options and how far you go - 0.8 to 3.0 for most. Due to short length and little elevation change this hike may be enjoyed year 'round!!! Summer sunsets will blow your mind, remember to bring plenty of fresh-battery flash-lights.
