Piestewa Peak, a Phoenix Point of Pride, is more than just a craggy crest offering 360-degree views of the Valley of the Sun. It is an icon of the metro area's outdoor culture. But the trek to the top is not for the casual walker. The 1.2-mile (2 km) Summit Trail boasts an elevation gain of 1,200 feet (366 meters). All steps! The longer 3.75 mile (6 km) Circumference Trail with its more gradual ascent offers families with active, younger children an opportunity to take in the views with less fatigue. No matter which hiking trail you take bring a map and help the kids identify Phoenix peaks. On a clear day Pinnacle Peak, McDowell Mountains, Four Peaks, Superstition Mountains, Mount Lemmon, Tabletop Mountain, Estrella Mountains, Woolsey Peak, White Tanks Mountains, Harquahala Mountains and Bradshaw Mountains are all visible.
