Really close to campus is South Mountain, where you can have a hike up the two and a half mile long Holbert Trail. You can even have a guided hike by park rangers absolutely free of cost.

In downtown Tempe right near campus is the Tempe Beach Park, where you can often catch great festivals, concerts, or runs that take place at the lake nearby.


4. Hike the Hayden Butte Preserve

Another short hike practically on the Arizona State University Tempe campus, near the Sun Devil Stadium.
