I walked over to Piestewa Peak Park today. (I still think of it as Squaw Peak) Car trouble put me out on foot, so I walked over. 2 1/2 miles each way, so just the walk qualified as a hike all by itself. Alas, I got there and then realized I had forgotten to bring water, so I wasn't prepared to tackle the trails. I sat for a while and watched hikers on the summit trail. Then I walked over and took the Alternate Summit trail, which is a lot of fun and very interesting. It begins near the entrance to the park and continues up to merge with the summit trail. That trail is rough, and appears almost unused. I have been on it a couple times and have expected to see a rattlesnake or two, but haven't so far. Just a rugged trail. It does join the summit trail, but it's not that far up so not too bad. It's hard to find anything remote in this park, but that trail fits the bill.
