What a beautiful trail, especially at sunrise. If you're truly following #302 it's not well marked in a couple of places, so having your AllTrails map will help. Steep incline in a couple of places takes this to the moderate level. Highly recommend.

A great and challenging hike. It was very challenging for out of shape adults and our 8 year old alike. Well worth the effort though. Definitely will go earlier next time, 9am was way too late with the heat!

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.
