Brown Hill Road – Arizona


My cousin and her family were taking a trip over spring break to Mesa, Arizona and they let me tag along!! After meeting up with my cousin’s friends, we decided to take a hike that was just a short drive from their house. Apparently, this trail has several names like Brown Mountain, Brown Road Hill and Red Mountain Trail per Google Maps.

Per All Trails, the hike is just under a mile and is essentially two inclines up to the top. Dogs are allowed, but Ellie did not make this trip. Also, the trail is rocky in places, but overall moderate.

Once you get to the top, you will see sweeping views of the valley tucked between various mountains. The daunting Superstition Mountains are to the east while Phoenix and Camelback Mountain are to the west.

While this hike is surrounded by subdivisions, I really did enjoy it since it introduced us to the landscape and gave us a cool orientation of the area. Be sure to check out this short hike if you are near Mesa!

  2. It’s pretty barren there compared to the midwest – but it was a very nice view of the area. Thanks for sharing!
