“Well-maintained trail.”
Review of Pinnacle Peak Park

Pinnacle Peak Park
Ranked #7 of 171 things to do in Scottsdale
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed July 9, 2013

The park is well staffed with volunteers, the path is well maintained, there are explanations about what you are looking out, or what you don't want to encounter... and plenty of fit people to challenge you on the climb. In addition, parking is not an issue (unlike Camelback Mountain). It is a very pleasant trail with good physical challenge opportunities.

Gorgeous park, amazing views! Love going here, the hike is fairly easy as well. Saw joggers and runners on the trail.

We did this hike on a scorching evening in early June..Temps were way above average that week.
We arrived about 6.15pm and on the day we were there the locking of the gates changed from 7.00pm to 8.00pm so we were happy about that..Most of the hike is in the shade since you are on the east side of the peak at that time.
Once you get about 3/4 of a mile behind you then the trail swings around to the west side and its easy bake oven time....** *Sunscreen and H2O Alert*** The view is magnificent from up here and you can see for miles...There was a breeze up there that felt like someone had turned on a giant furnace.. It was great!

Beautiful place to take a hike and take in beautiful views of the desert and the Scottsdale area. If you are going in the spring and/or summer I'd suggest you go in the morning (before 9am) in order to get a parking spot inside the parking lot AND more importantly to avoid the heat. Bring your camera and some water!
