From Tempe take hwy 51 North. Exit on Shea blvd and turn right for about 2 to 3 miles. Then turn right again on 40th st and go to the end as it ends on the trailhead.

Short and sweet hike. The first 6 or 7 mins is a long walk to the actual hike up to the peak. The trail is a steady incline e the rest of the way up which will give a very good workout. Great 360 view of the valley. If you want a great workout with the same views as Piestwa without the crowd then this is the trail for you.

Great trail. Perfect for trail running. If you start from Tatum lot 100 and turn onto two it it makes a 4 mile round trip. Very rocky and technical

Great hike for in town. Allows dogs. Less crowded than some trails. Challenging for beginners but doable. Views are great and similar to Piestawa. Natural trail (no man-made stairs) and very rocky.

I hiked this one by mistake! But what a good mistake! I parked at 40th trail head and meant to hike trail 8, but missed the sign and kept going straight. I just kept going anyway and found a great new hike. Somewhat popular too, as I was not alone here. This is almost as high as Squaw Peak (Piestawa), great views up here. Also a real leg burner!
