Recommend going before it gets too dark. The back side gets a little spooky at night.

Great trail, very well marked. A lot of the trail is very rocky, but still easily manageable. Some very good elevation over two periods of the hike that give you great views. I first hiked the Piestewa Peak, and then completed the Freedom trail. It was a nice break from the crowed Piestewa trail as I only saw one other hiker until I came around the other side and met back up with trail# 300. Overall this is a great hike, excellent workout and if you do it early enough the backside provides nice shade.

Probably my my favorite hiking trail in Phoenix. Good workout, I like to get the shared trail with the heavy traffic summit trail out of the way first, so when you break off from the summit trail it's nice and peaceful.
