There are a number of "spur trails" that connect the various main trails. Although the trails are described as "Out and Back" or "One-Way" and the distances show that scenario, most people the use this trail network take a combination of trails that form an overall loop. To get one's true distance traveled, a pedometer is needed.

Overall, there are a total of over 20 miles of trails in the network through the Hedgpeth Hills.

Very easy trail, but hiker beware! I was there on Sunday and upon arrival there was 3 break ins. One guys lost everything. Some very sketchy people and reported one. He was wearing flat white van tennis shoes and a empty backpack. Looked like that he was going up and then turned around and people watching. His shoes were very clean and white, no dust on them. Reported it to the authorities.

A nice trail that is close in to the city and can be hiked before or after work. Gets crowded quickly

This was my first time at Thunderbird Conservation Park. It is easy to locate, with decent sized parking. Trail is not overly crowded. It is mostly an easy trail. The trail is either loose rocks with some flat dirt on the sides or it is more rocky. Has plenty of room for "resting" at certain points. Clean. I enjoyed it because it wraps around the mountain, so you get a variety of views.

Out for a hike with my son today, we went to the Thunderbird Conservation Park, which is near his house. There are several trails in the park, beginning and ending near him. Not knowing any better, we just started up the closest one. That turned out to be Arrowhead Point. It was unmarked where we started, and we didn't see a marker until the end of the hike. It was only 1.5 miles to the top and back, and not at all difficult, though I breathed a little heavy along the way and did work up a bit of a sweat. All in all, though, a very easy trail. Also fairly uninteresting, without a lot to see. For a neighborhood hike, though, not too bad!
