This is one of the most popular hiking spots among Phoenicians. The moderately difficult trek up Piestewa’s Summit Trail takes less than hour and rewards climbers with city views and up-close encounters with jackrabbit, lizards, palo verde and mesquite trees, and dozens of types of cactus. Late evenings, it’s not uncommon to see the flashlights of night hikers.
