Great place for an easy hike. I've been going here with my kids since they were preschoolers. Beautiful views and lots of nature! It is a very nice and easy hike, no matter which path you take. Climb through the hole in the damn, try to figure out the petroglyphs, look for the honeycombs in the cliffs, or just watch... More

Near the entrance to this trail there is a nice bathroom and picnic area. Only saw another hiker while doing this walk. Very nice trail along a wash with interesting rock walls on either side. Very nice examples of cacti like saguaros growing out of the rocks. Saw signs of javelina on the wash. Some birds as well. Not too... More

This was a lovely trail out through state lands facing the Santa Catalina mountain range. The mountain biking was not too technical or strenuous. We stopped at the only hill around to take in the elevated view and stop for lunch. It was then that some yahoo started shooting (target practice ?). Bullets started whizzing by our ears, whether accidentally... More

This is a fun little ride, about 15 miles if you do the entire loop. Great way to get in a good spin without too much technical riding. Crappy landowners are trying hard to cut off the access road to state land, but you can access the trail on a fattie through the wash, or there is a drive-to entrance... More

We were staying very close by and got a quick snapshot of what to look for from the front desk. We ended up asking a couple coming from the other direction if we were near the petroglyphs. A couple asked us the same question on our way back. We went the other direction and found the hole in the wall... More

Honey Bee Canyon offers a variety of experiences, from fairly level paths, good for beginners & families with children to more difficult areas, including some that involve climbing-more for moderate hikers. Going into the canyon itself is fun, and peaceful. We only encountered two sign posts, but were fortunate enough to pass other hikers who pointed out the canyon and... More

This hike starts out in a suburban setting, with good parking and fancy restrooms. Wander down to the sandy wash and walk north, under the bridge, and up the wash. After about half a mile, it feels like you are no longer in town! Great desert vegetation to be enjoyed...and if you go far enough (about a mile), you'll find... More

We have visited here several times with children for great hikes! Dog friendly and some interesting places and one pyroglyphic we have found so far. Lovely and very peaceful place.

We had a nice walk in the canyon once and wanted to go back again but could not seem to find the entrance. The park is off a somewhat busy road so not easy to stop and look. After a couple of passes we decided to call it quits.

You can go in two different directions from the bottom of the ramp off the parking lot. If you want to see the petroglyphs, you need to hang a right and go into the river wash which will take you under Rancho Vistoso Blvd and out about 1.1 mile to the rock. I was expecting something a lot more majestic... More
