“Nice Hike”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

This was a great hike and very beautiful, however we ended up getting lost and basically had to go back the way we came. What was suppose to be a 1 1/2 -3 hour hike turned into a almost 5 hour hike. Maps were hard to read and signage not very good. I would say to pay close attention to the # you start out on.

“Piestawa Peak Hike”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Scenic trail with moderate difficulty for a short hike. Views were panoramically stunning. The trail was easy to follow although I was glad we started early since the crowds were showing up as we came back down. 35 -40 minutes up at a steady pace and faster coming down, so the hike is a quick but fun one.

“Fabulous hiking and great views!”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

What can I say about this mountain, Phoenicians love it! Even just a short way up the mountain you'll see great views of the city. Whether you're a novice or expert hiker, you'll enjoy hiking this mountain. It gets progressively difficult as you get higher. Never forget to bring water!

“MUST-VISIT PLACE”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

I've been there many times since 2011 and I keep returning... I like best going up just before sunset, watching sunset from the top and then going down...
