“Piestewa peak circumferential trail”
Reviewed 23 August 2014

As a member of Hiking Hikers Hiking 3H, I led an advanced hike from Dreamy Draw Park to the Piestewa peak circumferential trail #302 using various trails. We ascended about 800-900 feet.

“Beautiful Peak”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

What a lovely place to spend the morning hiking. Don't forget your water bottle! A busy trail, but if you are alone, it makes you feel safe. Uneven terrain so not ideal for those who are not stable footed. The views are worth the climb

“Great Exercice and View”

If you are in shape you can get to the peak in 30 minutes. I go there each time I travel to Phoenix.

“Beautiful area!”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

We stayed at a resort nearby and walked to the peak trail area. Nice trails, very open, varying degrees of walks offered, well-used by other hikers and bikers.

“Whew!”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

Do this hike early, there are several options...circumferenc trail is a great option to the summit. Take more water than you think you will need, sweatband or scarf, sunscreen, hat...use your head about your hiking level. Take breaks, drink water, enjoy the scenery.
