Mormon Trail


The South Mountain area of Phoenix contains a wide variety of trails. One of the best is the Mormon Trail to Hidden Valley. The trek is filled with great desert scenery and wonderful views of the city below. One of the landmarks is Fat Man's Pass, a narrow opening between two huge rocks with precious little room to squeeze through to the other side. If you're not tempted by the "pass" it's possible to hike over and around. The trail is 4.1 miles in length and is considered moderate to difficult. Elevation is from 1,778 to 2,346 feet. Allow two to four hours to complete the trip and be sure to watch for trail signs as there are several trails in this area. 

The trailhead is located at 8610 S. 24th Street in Phoenix. There is no fee to hike this great trail.
