Hikers, walkers, sightseers and runners alike flock to this prominent peak like moths to a flame, drawn here in part because of it proximity to the city of Phoenix. Despite the crowds this mountain can still be a lot of fun, offering as it does a short but taxing climb and many great views along the short route.

Pretty view from the top and definitely rewarding. This is the stairclimber from hell and my legs were shaking for an hour or so after. Good cardio workout. It is just a little too busy for my liking. There is a lot of loose rock and areas to fumble and having people on top of you going down and up makes the trek a little irritating to say the least. The parking lot was full by 6:30 am, well all 5 or so of them. We parked all the way down in the neighborhood and walked up about 3/4 mile or so, but that was almost a year ago. I saw comments saying they give tickets now. So, I guess get there when it is still dark for a spot.
