It’s a beautiful mountain with great city views. Parking Can we tight. We hike a Friday at 5 to watch the sunset. Be sure to bring a light or use your cell phone when hiking in the dark on the way down. It’s steep with loose rocks. There are a number of trails we did the summit. It’s challenging and steep but short at a little over a mile. You will not be alone on this trail - it’s very popular

We took our kids (age 6 and 8) and hiked Summit trail. It was more challenging than we anticipated, but the views were incredible. It’s a similar hike to Echo Canyon (Camelback), although a bit easier and not quite as steep. There is some climbing towards the top. The trail is well marked and there were a lot of other hikers, so you do have to be mindful of sharing the trail. Hikers were very friendly and considerate. There are bathrooms and drinking fountains at the trailhead, and parking is free. The hike is 4.5 miles round trip, so bring plenty of water.

There are several hiking trails here but the one to the peak is most popular. Parking at busy times can be a bit of a bear but there are actually several parking lots and new ones being worked on so I recommend you drive all the way in before feeling you won't find a spot. Nice restrooms facilities and picnic areas (currently taped off for Covid). The peak trail is doable for most, but you may need some breaks or there are scenic views along the way if you don't want to go all the way up. Wear hiking shoes (although many had tennis/running shoes on). The oddest thing is that this trail as well as many have signs saying to not listen to your music out loud. Is this a real problem? Must be - despite this sign we encountered people were blaring their music while hiking on every trail we did here and elsewhere. Sorry, but that is just strange. Especially if you are alone and don't need to "share" your music. Why do people think I or anyone else wants to hear their bad choice of music? I wouldn't force anyone to listen to my music selection. An odd human hiking behavior, I guess. Bring water! wear sunglasses, but certainly add this to your list when in Phoenix.

Started out thinking this was going to be a fairly easy 30 minute hike. I hike, i love nature and exercise. This was one of the harder hikes I've done. If you are not prepared to work all the way maybe try an easier trail. The views once you finally reach the top are amazing and worth it. Make sure to being water. This was a great workout!

Great hike, 2.2 miles each way with 1100 ft vertical elevation. More steps and less bouldering than Camelback, but longer hike, You need to be in pretty good shape to make the top. There are sort of two tops, one for most and one if you want to rock scramble. Just like the typical hikes in Phoenix, parking can be a challenge. Also no fee for parking or anything, so free hike.
