 Hiking Trails

A view of Fool Hollow Lake from the lakeside hiking trail.A 1.5-mile walking trail runs along the south and west sides of the lake. This trail is a great way to take in the area beauty, or to get away from other anglers, and into better fish populations. By hiking away from the majority of anglers, you can increase your odds of having a successful Fool Hollow fishing adventure! Area wildlife is more readily seen from the trail as well. Take a stroll, bring your binoculars, and see how many different bird and animal species you can encounter! Tour the trail.

Other arizona hiking trail opportunities can be found throughout the state so adventure is always a short drive away!
