Hiked this with my girlfriend when I was visiting here in Phoenix. For being right in the middle of a city, this is a really really cool peak. The views are also really amazing. We had a bunch of rain so that made it really slick on the descent.

TJ311Birthday Hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 19, 2010


Was in Phoenix for the Rock & Roll Half Marathon. Planned a few extra days so that I could get a couple of hikes in. The trail was pretty busy, but we had the summit to ourselves for a few minutes. A perfect January day and my 46th birthday!

InclinerSquaw Peak  Sucess!


A classic hike in Phoenix area. It will always be Squaw Peak to me. Wanted to set up a page on here thinking it wasn't here, but they changed the name....

BethSSummit Trail  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 27, 2008


Climbed this after work once a week from the end of May til the end of August while I was living in Phx last summer. I would have loved to run it but my short legs are no match for some of the larger rock steps!

Forgot my headlamp once while doing a sunset climb, had to descend in the pitch black which took longer than the climb up!

kavakSummit Trail  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 18, 1999


I was dropped off at the parking lot by a friend. It was very hot, but summit fever grabbed hold of me and I sweated my way to the tippy top. When I arrived back down to the trailhead, I had no transportation to the Marriott. So after a couple of attempts I bummed a ride from someone and successfully made it poolside.

If 1 in 1000 of the Piestewa Peak climbers would
graduate to the hiking the Arizona County High
Points then we could lap Rhode Island in completions.

Date Climbed: Jul 11, 2008


Great overcast day, and a great summit...were it not for the hordes of flying ants and the ultra-mugginess from monsoon season! Still a great peak to climb...just do it in the winter!

Maybe it was college bowl game time and there were lots of visitors in town, but I felt like I was waiting in line to get to the top.

Date Climbed: Dec 18, 2007


My brother and I made it to the summit in 22 minutes. The weather was absolutely beautiful. We used to climb this mountain as kids when there were far fewer people on it and it was still called Squaw Peak.

eferesenSummer Afternoon  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 5, 2005


Done this peak many times. It is a lot of fun doing it super early in the morning (winter). I have also done it at around 107. One just gets used to it.

2skinnersFun climb  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 6, 2007


Loads and loads of people. Parking is much better than Camelback Mountain though. Last section to the summit was probably the funnest. Most people climb to the left and call it good, whereas the actual summit is on the right hand side. I recommend climbing it early in the morning or much later in the afternoon to avoid the sun directly in your eyes as you are summiting.

surgentSummit Trail, what else?  Sucess!


I usually hike this if the parking lot at Camelback is too full. This can be crowded, too. Still, a good solid hike of 1,200 feet gain in about 1.2 miles, with a short scramble to the summit (on the right). Great workout peak. Have hiked it about 150 times, I'd say - usually takes me 1 hour exactly up and down.

fear n loathing

This was a nice little hike. It would have been better had I not had been hung over and 90 some degrees out. I would rate it maybe a 4 for difficulty, but a 10 for scenery. And when I mean scenery I'm ONLY talking about the trophy milfs you see all over the trail.
