I hiked Piestewa Peak for the first time this past weekend. We got there right at 6am to beat the heat and the crowds, but apparently 6am is on the later side, as the parking lots were already full, and were got lucky to grab a spot. The hike is a straight incline the entire way up, so if you aren't in decent shape, I would not recommend. Especially not in the hot summer. The views are beautiful however, and everyone is friendly on the trail. It was a great workout! I will say that the trail is very narrow (much more so than Camelback mountain), and you are passing people only a foot away. It made me a little nervous with Covid, so you may want to bring a bandana to put on your face if that's something you're concerned about. Also, please don't be one of those people we saw with no water out there during the summer. The temps were already in the low 90's when we finished the hike at 7:30am! It took us exactly 1.5 hours to complete the hike. (For reference, my sister and I are both 37 years old, in good shape, and went at a fairly quick pace). If you are active and want a great workout with awesome scenery, I would highly recommend.

Great workout hike; quite a bit of parking as well. Can get really crowded & if you go in the warmer months go early in the day & take lots of water.

My first hike ever and as much as I wanted to quit, I did reach the top and so glad I wasn't a "quitter" that day. The workout along with the views will take your breath away.

Drove up on a whim. Well-developed park in the midst of building improvements, with pavilions and restrooms. Thankfully no dogs allowed on the trails.

This is a very difficult but rewarding hike. My 24-year-Old son is the only one to make it to the top, the rest of us skipped the last 2 legs due to the steep climb. GORGEOUS views, but the trail was so rough going down it took almost the same amount of time as going up so plan accordingly! This was our 3rd hike in 4 days and this was by far the most challenging descent.
