ATS HIKES February 6 Piestewa Peak
http://www.arizona-leisure.com/piestewa-peak-hiking.html
 
It’s time to reach for the top. We are taking on the Squaw Peak National Trail this month on Saturday, February 6. We will begin the hike around 9 AM. You will need to bring water on this hike, as it is a little more strenuous than some of our previous endeavors. Plan on arriving around 8:30 AM with the idea you might have to wait for a parking spot to open up. The lot is a decent size, however, this is one of the most popular hikes in Phoenix for locals and tourist.
 
Piestewa Summit Trail #300.
  • Length.1.2 miles to the summit
  • Elevation Gain. 1,200 feet
  • Difficulty: Moderate to difficult
 
The 2,608 foot Piestewa (Squaw) Peak is not only one of prominent landmarks in the Valley of the Sun, but one of its most popular hiking venues where over a half a million people hike its Summit Trail every year. It is an interesting fact that the numbers of hikers enjoying Piestewa is second only to the Grand Canyon's Bright Angel Trail. What's great about Piestewa Peak is its convenient urban location in the heart of the Greater Phoenix and Scottsdale area. Residents can leave home, employees can leave work and travelers can leave their hotels, take an invigorating hike and still have to time for other activities around town.
 
Located between North 24th Street and Tatum Blvd. and North of Lincoln Drive, Piestewa overlooks the Phoenix and Scottsdale skylines and its base is surrounded by some of the most affluent neighborhoods in the Valley. And those that reach the summit are rewarded with 360 degree panoramic views that extend to South Mountain Park, which also features great hiking trails.
 
The trailhead is located in the parking lot at the first driveway on the left in the Phoenix Mountains Park. To reach the trail to Piestewa's Summit, turn east on Squaw Peak Drive from Lincoln Drive between 22nd and 24th streets. There are paved parking lots, drinking water and restrooms at the trailhead area. From 4,000 to 10,000 hikers per week will trek the Summit Trail. Dogs, bikes and horses are not permitted on Summit Trail.
