The park entrance does have ample parking in two separate lots. Beware this is a popular local and tourist destination. You will certainly encounter tour buses with groups of 15- 20 people, especially on the weekends. Weekdays and mornings can be lower traffic times, if you want a bit more peace and quiet.

Be prepared with ample water, as it takes approximately two hours round trip for most people. During the summer or hot weather, start the hike early in the day to avoid peak temperatures and high sun intensity. As always, be sure to apply sunscreen and wear a hat & sunglasses to protect from UV rays.

The trailhead begins with a warning: difficult to very difficult. Be sure to consider heat conditions and your own fitness level before embarking on the trail.

Overall, the steep and rocky trail can be difficult for anyone who may have joint injuries in the lower extremities, such as ankle, knee or hip issues.

There are areas where you have to step up and down rocks, and this may be troublesome for those with limited mobility. Of course, one can always turn back at any point if they feel the trail becomes too steep or tiresome. Other trails nearby have less incline and easier footing, located off to the right of the trailhead.

Winding up the switchbacks, the view is ever changing as you climb in elevation. Race to the top for some intense cardio or take your time and enjoy the beauty that surrounds you.

Near the last stretch, this amazing mesquite tree is just chillin’ at the top. As you reach the saddle, the trail goes over the ridge and will bear to the right for the final intense summit.

Thankfully, there is a railing on the steepest part of the trail, along with landscaping that greatly helps your footing for the intense incline/ decline. Finally, the reward. Enjoy panoramic views of the city of Phoenix from the top of Piestewa Peak.

I am an infinite being, incarnated here to assist planet Earth's spiritual ascension. I am LOVE. I am a gypsy soul. I am an artist, yogini guru, intuitive healer & binaural beat music producer. Founder of the Los Angeles Healing Center, Pachamama Yoga Studio, Transcendental Beats Music & Sacred Art Studio, on the pursuit of raising the vibrations of this planet. I love to connect with people, myself, the Universe, nature, animals and YOU. My spiritual journey began when I decided not to live as a prisoner of negative thoughts and emotions, and turned my life around. I became more aware of my own energy and how I could raise it and use it to create and manifest. Through the teaching of spiritual masters and meditation I changed my thought and behavioral patterns, and started living a more positive and happy life. Now, I live the life of my dreams.
