Best places to Hike?

We are staying at Hilton Tapatio Cliffs. Would love to hike all three days in different spots. Thanks!

A great place to hike is the McDowell Sonoran Preserve. Many different trail options. Here is their website.


You could easily spend all three days here as there are different entrances. Another good place is Pinnacle Peak. Great Hike, amazing views and a neat restaurant close by called Greasewood Flats.

Very close to where you are staying is Piestewa (Squaw) Peak and there is always Camelback Mountain.

Even a closer place would be North mountain, across the street from your hotel.

Piestewa, Camelback, and South Mountain. Could fit in North Mountain one day, too.
