Piestewa Peak

2800 E. Squaw Peak Rd.,
Phoenix,
AZ,
United States,
85016.

The City of Phoenix estimates that this summit’s trail is one of the most heavily used in the country; it draws an estimated 4,000 to 10,000 hikers per week. True, the upper reaches of the peak sometimes get crowded, but a large parking lot makes for easy access to the trail. This climb is like one big StairMaster, and many locals use it as such. Like Camelback Mountain, it offers a 1.2-mile trail ascending about 1,200 vertical feet. Lazier trails branch off into the surrounding Phoenix Mountain Preserve—a magnificent 7,000-acre desert wonderland in the heart of the metro area.
