what a wonderful place to bring your out of town guests! Beautiful at sunrise and sunset. Wear good shoes, a bit rocky, pebbly. Take your camera, maybe a bit of wildlife off the trail.

This was my first visiting this park. It was a great early morning hike. Watch out for snakes. We saw a common king while hiking.

Spectacular views at the summit of this hiking trail. Best views are at the half mile mark at the Grandview lookout.

This is a popular hiking trail for both locals and tourists. Not difficult. Definitely start early in the morning to avoid the heat. Lovely views of the desert terrain. Very easy to get to and there was lots of parking.

My friends wanted to visit Pinnacle Peak Park. We stayed until sunset and what a beautiful sunset it was! Pinnacle Peak Park is another great Arizona location for snapping landscape photos and wedding parties.

Depends on what physical shape your child is in. There were children of all ages hiking when we were there. I would suggest you not hike the whole trail your first time.

Do both. Each has magnificent scenery. From Pinnacle Peak, however, you'll get some more expansive views, not to mention some bird's eye views of gorgeous homes. In the Preserve you are closer to the desert.
