The Lake Overlook Trail is the perfect hike that is easily forgotten. You can reach the trail across from Fountain Park on the east side of the parking lot where you will see the posted trailhead sign. The trail is 1.7 miles long and has a few inclines but other than that is pretty easy. You gradually climb along the townhomes to the top of the ridge where you have spectacular views of our famous fountain and the surrounding community.
If you look to the south you can see Red Rock and the Goldfield Mountains. To the east is Four Peaks, look north you have the Mazaltzals, and the McDowell’s are to the west. The hike takes you out by the Diamante Del Lago community entry gate where you can pick it up again across the street and work your way back down to Panorama Drive. It is truly one of Fountain Hills hidden gems.
