It is a desert hike, so you'll be exposed to the sun and will need water. The parking lot on the north side is easy to access and gives you use of many, many trails.

My best friend in the world has lived across the street from the Phoenix Mountain Preserve for 50 years. He and I rode our Arabians on Lookout Mountain and the Phoenix Mountain Preserve every day for a year. My Arabian was TRAINED in this Preserve. We'd saddle up and walk them right on up the sidewalk to the tunnel that goes under Thunderbird Road to get you there. What a most wonderful time in our lives. Arabians can go ANYWHERE! They are so much more than just Beautiful Creatures... They are built like Pegasus. That was one of the best years of my life... there are many paths and trails you can take if you like hiking, or horseback riding. Nowhere in the world will you find a more beautiful place. There is so much natural desert flora and fauna, wildlife, views. The list just goes on and on.. Thank you Phoenix.

I have lived in Phoenix my entire life and have never really given much thought about the Phoenix Mountains Preserve. Well, that has changed! I hiked to Piestewa Peak, and wow, was it beautiful! It was also a very good workout! I can't believe the amount of hiking that is available in the preserve right in the middle of Phoenix! I definitely recommend checking out the assortment of trails the preserve offers. It is pretty large, so if you need help finding preserve amenities like drinking fountains, restrooms, ramadas, etc., the app, Avem, is very helpful!

The Quartz Ridge hike was only one hour, and we really enjoyed it. The path was covered with fist sized rocks. The elevation change was just under 200’, so could be a challenge. Lots of hikers, but not crowded. Very limited parking. The local mall has signs that say they tow hikers’ cars. Luckily our rental was still there upon our return. I quite enjoyed the hike!
