Phoenix, AZ 85016

I absolutely LOVED it!!!! Really awesome hike with awesome views and super cool!!!

The trailhead is located in the parking lot at the first driveway on the left in Phoenix Mountains Park and Recreation Area. To reach the trail to the summit of Piestewa Peak, turn east on Squaw Peak Drive from Lincoln Drive between 22nd and 24th streets. Paved parking, drinking water and restrooms are available. Please note that there is no parking in residential areas along Squaw Peak Drive signed “No Parking.”

The trail to the summit of Piestewa Peak was first constructed by a wrangler employed at the Biltmore Hotel sometime around 1930. Now, it is one of the most heavily used trails in the nation with 4,000 to 10,000 hikers per week. The trail ascends Piestewa Peak to the highest point in the park.

DIRECTIONS: Phoenix is about 6 hours from our area. Take the I-10 East the whole way and exit E Glendale Ave. Continue onto E Lincoln Ave and turn left at Squaw Peak Dr.
