Why locals recommend it
Absolute best spot on a mountain to view the Phoenix Valley. Be aware, although it is a short hike, the trek can be rather steep in some areas. Moderate-high difficulty level. Very popular hike in the city so hike out early if you'd prefer to avoid crowds.

For more advanced hiking. PLEASE advise heat and hiking when visiting during summer months.

One of the more popular, scenic hikes in Arizona, and only 3.5 miles away from your stay! It is a steep trail, so I highly recommend you wear good shoes and bring enough water. Limited parking, however, so I would recommend grabbing a Lyft or Uber, to save time from finding parking.

If you are looking for a good hike, this is the first place id direct you to. One of the funnest and most challenging hikes in town. For fist timers I'd say try Piestewa Peak

“Challenging but rewarding hike! I would say this is a little easier than Echo Trail on Camelback Mountain but still not easy. It's like a stair stepper. If you want a hike less challenging than Camelback check this out. ”
