Trail shared by Jocelyn Nelson

A great little trail that ends on top of a large boulder in the middle of the Phoenix area!

Description

The trail starts at the parking lot and works its way around the boulder until you come up into the backside. There is a large hole (giving this place its name) in the rock that is wide enough for several people to walk through at the same time.

Spend some time exploring the top of this place and take some pictures. For the capable and more experienced runner, I'd recommend climbing to the top of the boulder, as there is an additional hole at the top that is fun to look through and get your picture taken from below.

Hole in the rock from the trailhead. Easy hike in the middle of the Phoenix area.

Peeking through a hole at the top of Hole in the Rock. Must boulder/scramble to actually get to the top of this rock. Not for the inexperienced.
