If you’re ever in Tempe, hiking to the ASU “A” Mountain at Hayden Butte is something you should cross off your list of local things to do. The trail starts at the Hayden Flour Mill. It’s a short, fairly steep walk along a mostly paved trail. There are some cool views of Tempe from the top of the butte.

 
Short but steep with a lot of stairs. I have seen many people train! Running up and down and then back up. It’s perfect for working those glutes (ladies)!!!
 
If you’re looking for a relatively quick and easy hike in Tempe, this would suit you well. Like I have mentioned the steep paved grade for the first third with switchbacks taking you to the summit. Generally takes 15-20 max to reach the summit. Enjoy!
