My dog Bruce and I had a great time!! If you start just before sunrise you’ll get a really great view of all of north Phoenix by the time you reach the top!

This is a good one to do at night during the summer. Trail is wide and clear enough you don't need a flashlight. For the extra workout go all the way down the south side of mountain to 15th Ave. then climb back up!

This was a difficult hike for me. I hike a lot, but the incline definitely got to me towards the top.

Bring a lot of water and be ready to see the city at the top
