Deem Hills Recreation Park

Deem Hills Recreation Park


Life is so much better with people you meet along the way.

Good morning ladies. Cheers to sunrise.
Shout out to these guys for getting the trail ready for the Phoenix Summit Challenge & UROCK Festival
FOUND a pair of glasses on the trail at Deem Hills today. Message me with a description if you think they are yours. I would be glad to return them to the owner.
The city is putting in an "interpretive trail" on the west side of the park. I checked the progress of that project today. They have destroyed a lot of the desert. There is not going to be much left to interpret.

Sunrise hikes at
Deem Hills Recreation Park
Hi everyone! In these hard times I hope you all are taking advantage of the parks! Fresh air and stretching the legs can really clear the mind. I have just added Deem Hills Park to my app, Avem. It lists all of the park amenities and even shows you how to find your favorites. I'd love for you to try it out next time you are at the park!
When are the dog parks going to re-open? Went by last night and nothing looked different. Thanks.
I lost my keys at the park today (3.10.18) at about noon... there is a reward if anyone finds them. Please contact me at 6232298309 if found. Thank you so much!!
They have a coach key chain attached.
Found Birthday card in parking lot addressed to Jack. Message me if this yours please.

Thieves smash-and-grab from car at popular Valley trailhead

“Smash and Grab” on the rise at trailheads across the valley:
Phoenix Police say remember "TLC":

TAKE IT - Take your things out of your vehicles. If you know you are going hiking, don't take stuff to the park.
LOCK IT - Lock your doors. Many people leave their vehicles unlocked and/or the windows down.
CONCEAL IT - CONSOLES AND GLOVE BOXES DON'T WORK! That is where bad guys look first. Trunks are better and a little harder to break into. If you can't put your stuff in the trunk, cover it with an old coat, rag or gym towel on the floor in the back. Try not to use a jacket or something that might be desirable for a thief. A mother is warning others after she was the victim of a smash-and-grab during a scenic hike.


Wishing all the fans of hiking at Deem Hills a remarkable 2019!

Warmer Arizona temps increase rattlesnake activity |

Warmer weather is great at Deem Hills but keep your eyes open and alert. Warmer temperatures and longer days have these crawly critters waking up from their winter slumber. Experts say when the highs in the afternoon reach the 80 degree mark, rattlesnakes start their spring slither and that's why it's time to be on guard.


Cool morning at Deem Hills, tomorrow will be as well!

Love is in the air, so be careful out there! This is at Thunderbird Mountain .

Loving the weather? So are the rattlesnakes...

Remember to stay alert and watch your step! ABC15 viewer Donna Hawkins sent in these shots from her recent hike on Thunderbird Mountain in Glendale.


Consider saving this simple map image in your smart phone. I wish I would have had it the other day to help a couple who had gotten lost. It would have been easier to show than explain :)
