PHOENIX (CBS 5) - If you are an avid hiker, chances are you know the way to stay safe when hitting the trails.

But the same can't be said for everyone.

[SPECIAL SECTION: Caught Misbehaving]

Stanley Roberts went to Papago Park in Phoenix where common sense is not that common.

There are many trails at Papago Park located by the Phoenix Zoo. One of the areas is named "Hole In the Rock." It’s a popular hiking trail that locals and tourist flock to. At the top of The Hole in The Rock is a literal hole in the rock.

At the rear of the giant rock are stairs carved into the rock, but for some reason, people like to try and come down from the front, which creates some problems. Roberts was there to witness and record some of the shenanigans. One lady claimed that she would have never tried to come down the dangerous way if there were signs saying it was dangerous.

Caught Misbehaving with Stanley Roberts exposes individuals who brazenly defy the law or common courtesy, risking social and/or legal consequences. His reports air regularly on CBS 5 News at 10 p.m.

My mom had to be rescued from there when she was a teen back in the 60's by the fire department.

It's probably a self correcting thing. Good to see folks out having fun. [cool]

First trip to HiR was almost 50 years ago. People always trying to go up the front. When did they make going up the front 'illegal'. It is for more experienced hiker/climers.

Why don't you highlight the majority doing good and being respectful?

It's called caught behaving badly, not kudos for doing a good job.

"One lady claimed that she would have never tried to come down the dangerous way if there were signs saying it was dangerous." If she cannot spot "dangerous" routes she should be banned from being outside her house.
