Piestewa Peak Summit Trail #300 is a 2.3 mile heavily trafficked out and back trail located near Phoenix, Arizona that features beautiful wild flowers and is only recommended for very experienced adventurers. The trail offers a number of activity options and is best used from March until October.
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.
love this, quick and dirty ✌
Did this hike in mid-February. A fairly challenging but do-able hike (my husband and I are in fairly decent shape but we're not super hikers either). I was surprised at how crowded the trail was, even mid-morning on a Wednesday. The view was worth the effort!
My short hobbit-like legs made for a steady pace to the top and a slow trip back down. Such incredible views!
Great workout! Wear sunscreen.
