DescriptionThis park is located in the Phoenix Mountain Preserve, formerly called Squaw Peak.
There are several parking lots, picnic armadas and a ranger office.
The SUMMIT TRAIL is a steep stair like climb over solid and decomposed granite. If a personae has been piloting a recliner for a few years I think a summit climb should be taken in weekly portions. But the avid hiker will love the shear challenge of the ascent and some times terror of the descent.
Injuries are inevitable for some people.
