I found that hikers on Piestewa Peak were extremely rude. They had no patience with those who could not move as fast as they. I got every thing from dirty looks to being shoved. I will never go back unless they have security guards there which is not likely to happen.

Walked up to the top of the former Squaw Peak the day after Christmas and it was crowded but fun. It is steep and rocky at the top, but well worth it for the beautiful vista.

Get there early or late because it does get crowded. considered easy by some I can never make it to the top. The are lots of fitness types running this trail as well as too many dogs. Parking can be a problem but you get your workout. Somewhat difficult for non fitness types because of loose rocks and gravel and somewhat narrow paths at points. bring water.

I purposely stayed in a motel close to this hiking area. Enjoyed hiking in this preserve in the middle of Phoenix.

The geology of these mountains is fascinating. The most popular trail is the summit trail, but that's not the best one. There are a variety of trails, from moderate to challenging. This is a great place to hike and forget your troubles.
