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.

Nice challenging, long, fun, great views, good folks, a bit scary, but not too much so to avoid. One of our favorite courses to hike in the city, the very peak is a little technical, but most of it is pretty straight forward. Bring enough water and a snack.

Just what I needed. All way around and up to the summit and then back down the other side.
