Looking for recreational activities in and around Litchfield Park? Spring time in Litchfield Park, Arizona is a great time of year to get out and go hiking. Last Friday, my wife and I decided to drive over to the White Tank Mountain Regional Park for one of our favorite hikes – Mesquite Canyon Trail.
The hike itself is a moderate hike but he trail does connect with additional trails and can become an all day hike if you desire . We generally hike up past the 2 mile mark to get some greats views of the Valley of the Sun looking back to the East. At mile marker 2, there are several places where you can hike off the main trail and find a spot to sit and have lunch or take a moment to close your eyes and meditate or just listen to the sounds of nature.
There are numerous hiking trails throughout the White Tank Mountains which will range in difficulty from vey easy – Waterfall Trail to more advanced hiking – the Ford Canyon Trail. Go visit the White Tank Mountain website for all the details.
From Litchfield Park (let’s use Litchfield Rd and Wigwam Blvd as our reference point) the drive was 15 miles. Once you enter the park, stay on the main road, White Tank Mountain Rd to Waterfall Canyon Rd, turn left. Follow to Ramada Way, turn left again then head to end of road and parking lot. You can access the White Tank Mountain Regional Park map here. So what are you waiting for? Get outside and go explore the White Tank Mountains today.
