Wat je gaat doen

As we stretch and assemble our hiking packs, I’ll spend about five minutes introducing myself and the surrounding network of trails and peaks. We’ll then walk to the Piestewa Peak trailhead, about a five-minute NE walk from the parking area. I’ll briefly point out the trail map and offer a few recommendations for completing the summit trek, then we’re off on our desert hiking experience! The summit trail is appropriately rated "extremely difficult," as the elevation gain remains consistently steep for 85%-95% of the 1.2-mile ascent. I'll readily point out and offer strategic resting spots and scenic views along the way (there are five!). We'll pass a variety of cacti, metamorphic rock formations, and potentially some small animals as we make our way to the summit. At the top, you'll be rewarded with 360-degree views of Phoenix and the surrounding suburbs and mountain ranges. This is the perfect opportunity to snap some memorable photos, which I'm more than happy to help with! After a prudent rest with water and snacks (and touching your boot on the official summit seal), we'll make our timely descent back to the parking area.

Mike

I am a Phoenix, AZ native and have been hiking local area trails for 25+ years. Piestewa Peak (formerly Squaw Peak) is one of my go-to summit destinations. On average, I hike this trail around 50 times per year--in addition to other peaks around the valley. I'm passionate about Phoenix's mountain preserves, and I'm excited to take visitors and residents alike on a memorable, challenging hiking experience--one that effectively captures the dynamic landscape of our sunny metropolis. Come #azhikewithmike for guided views of Phoenix you'll want to capture and share with friends and family.

Waar je zult zijn

During your local hiking visit, we'll largely keep to the Piestewa Peak Summit Trail within Phoenix Mountains Park. Piestewa prominently rises 1,176 feet above the city and backs up against the popular Dreamy Draw Park Area. The park provides dozens of miles of intersecting trails. You'll experience the second-highest point in the Phoenix Mountains! On a clear day, you'll see plenty of other iconic mountain peaks and metropolitan landmarks.
