Fun and tough for the distance! Started at 7:30 back to car by 9:15 and off the Camelback. True summit just next to where most people hang USGS marker visible.

farrisglGreat Workout Peak  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 3, 1982


I first hiked Squaw Peak in about 1982 when working for a company with a division in Phoenix. While short, I love the intensity of 1,000 per mile so close to Phoenix. Over the years probably hiked it about 2 dozen times. Last time was with my wife in October 2015. We are in the process of relocating to Phoenix from Palm Springs and look forward to regular visits.

I can see why they say this little peak is one of the busiest, too many people! Not a peak to find peace and quiet. Fun and steep though.

Hiked after camelback that with the fact it got much hotter made it a little tougher. But a decent hike very rocky with plenty of trail runners. Hit up true summit which is not difficult despite almost no one even attempting at least when I was there

BritaSunny Hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 29, 2013


I love how these mountains are in the middle of the city. This was a quick hike but it's a lot of stairs so it was hard! I was up in about 27 minutes and my legs were burning. It was a little hot since it was the end of june ;) but there was a nice breeze. I drenched my shirt before we started and I hardly noticed the heat on the way up. By the time we got to the car though I was burning and ready to cool off. I definitely want to do this one again some time, maybe in Nov or Dec.

runbyu1Quick, hot run up!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 29, 2013


I was in town for the weekend and have had my eye on this one. We decided to brave the heat around 9am, despite the 100 degrees while we were out. We took it easy to warm up the first ten minutes and then we hammered it to the summit. I was another 12 minutes and Brit a few minutes later. This was my first time. Not quite as fun or runnable as the Cholla trail of Camelback, but it was really nice to do something different. We brought water which we did not drink, but poured on ourselves. All around good experience, I look forward to warming up before hand and seeing how fast I can run hard to the top.

Have hiked this many times since the mid-1990s, it is very popular and often crowded. Great views on the way up and from the summit.
