West Wing Mountain Loop starting at Westwing Park in Peoria, AZ. This loop includes the marked "loop" of 3.1 miles plus additional spurs to scenic views, alternative "extreme" route and short access from parking lot to official start. Trail is rocky due to volcanic basalt and tuff. Great neighborhood trail.

Carl Shull & I hiked Westwing to see if there were any holiday decorations left up there or any other issues after the new year. We only found a little trash, a few boulders that needed moving, and a Palo Verde Root that was impeding trail which we took out.

Did the full loop and the two peaks. Well marked with signs indicating the easier and harder trails. No shade so recommend this during the cool season. Wear boots as there’s a lot of lose rock and areas where you’ll want that extra grip.

Pat, Carl and I made it up and around the Westwing Trail prior to rain that is forecasted. Trail was in good condition. Down the road, we may return to a few spots with McLeods.

First part of trail is through a neighborhood. Not a lot of people on the trail. Signage is a little confusing. Some nice views from the top

I recommend this trail to an advanced hiker. it is rated Moderate but I found it to be Hard. we did get off trail intentionally, trying to get a view of Paloma park. Tough climb at times. loose rock and dried vegetation much going up or down a challenge.

It starts on residential property so be sure to park across the street at the playground! Really lovely trail with lots of options based on how difficult you wanna go. Very rocky and relatively steep on some parts so wear good shoes and watch where you step. Parts of the trail offer shade. I went at sunrise, and had a really lovely morning. I went on a weekday and I never ran into another hiker.
