Eastwing Mountain is a lightly travelled trail in Peoria that has both moderate and difficult hiking options. The difficult option is a rock scramble up. On the moderate trail you will have to go down the rock portion to complete the loop. There is a beautiful 360 degree view from the top of Peoria and the surrounding area.

This is a good open trail not much climb but lacks any markers and that makes it difficult to find your way back which is not a good thing for first timers to this place.

Awesome hike after a light rain fall, calm, sunset. A little longer than expected. Steeper scrambling near the top

Great little fun hike. Perfect for kids. Little narrow in some spots. Plenty of flowers and lizards. Not too strenuous but if you’re looking for more of a workout I’d recommend a different hike.

Took the trail to the top that said “difficult” but it was more like moderate, just a bit challenging to navigate with a dog because of all the rocks. Great view at the top with a little bit of shade to sit under. Agreed that the beginning is a bit boring through all the houses. Also, the parking is a bit down the road from the trailhead so it took me a minute to figure out which direction to head!

Easy hike for a family of littles

This is a nice trail with not a lot of people, clean and well marked. I enjoyed the rockier parts of the climb, it was a good, shorter hike with excellent views. I believe I could see Lake Pleasant and the summit is peaceful.

My family loves this hike and it's not all that busy. Sometimes I have the trail to myself. My older dog and young kids are able to make it to the top with guidance and a little help. The views to the north are a nice reward. Watch out for rattlesnakes in the spring and summer.

Beginning of the trail is relatively boring as you wend your way between houses in the local neighborhood. Then, you start climbing and it gets much more interesting, varied and fun. A good steady ascent to the summit provides some really nice views in many directions. Trail is rough/rocky but easy to follow. Although it is short, it is a very worthwhile hike.

The beginning of the trail doesn't offer anything terribly interesting, as you're just hiking through a wash behind houses. Then the trail starts to climb up the side of the mountain and it becomes quite nice with some steep sections and lots of boulders and desert vegetation. Views are very good, especially for being tucked into the neighborhood. Upon nearing the summit, I was bought into this trail -- even in the summer -- as a nice escape with excellent views of the surrounding mountains. Only reason it's not a 5/5, is that it's just a bit too short to make it a regular destination

the trail was a little bit moderate. it started out very easy and then got a little bit harder as it went on it was a good challenge for a short hike. if you like a little bit of exercise tough exercise with Scenic views then by all means go to this Trail.
