This is very where I was staying and it is a lovely little gem tucked in a neighborhood. It is good for someone who does not have mobility issues, but maybe can't go that far. Perfect for children!

This botanical garden actually looks like the many backyards in Fountain Hills. The plants are natural and many of them are labeled. It is small, but a good hike.

Another reviewer stated there was a $22 entrance fee, but that must have been for another place. There is no charge for Fountain Hills Botanical Garden. Just park in the little lot, pick up a brochure at the trailhead (or download one) and start walking....More

A tad expensive to enter 22 per person but a nice way to spend the early day. Several areas within including a butterfly hummingbird area, herb garden, several other loops of specific vegetation. All trails are configured within loops so no chance of getting turned...More

We go to Arizona in February and we go no this hike every year. This is my favorite trail. It is easy and it is a short hike. We always see rabbits and some birds. The trails are really beautiful.
