Excellent trail for all levels as if it becomes too strenuous, you can turn around. It is well maintained and offers ample rest spots to take in beautiful views of the park, overlooks of golf course and neighborhood and to catch your breath if needed.

The trail offers educational signs about the desert creatures and landscape, plants etc. they have a jr ranger program for children (actually all ages 😊).

Be sure to take plenty of water and snacks, hiking sticks, etc.

My suggestion is if you don't want to do the full trail from end to end to avoid the long climb back to the visitor center, that you go as far as Grand View or Owl's Rest and then turn around.

This is a very popular trail with many visitors but there's plenty of room for all. If you don't like crowds while hiking this isn't the place for you.

We had a nice time on this hike although it was a bit difficult just due to the heat. We started out around 7:30 am and that was even a bit too late for us. It was in the 90’s and so it’s hard to hike the sunny, switchback inclines in that heat. We made sure to bring water. The locals seemed to have no problem, but out of towners need to make sure to start early and bring water. Easy parking. It is not a loop trail but let’s out in a neighborhood or you have to hike back (4 miles round trip). You actually never reach the “peak”, but instead kind of skirt around 2 different “peaks”.

This is a lovely park but if you decide to hike to the hike it can be steep. You need a lot of water but will be rewarded with marvelous views. No dogs are allowed on trail.

This park offers a moderate hike to the "peak", which not the top, but as far as the peak ascends. From here, you can turn back or continue on the one way trail where the hiking becomes a little more challenging (switchbacks, more "rugged" terrain). Total trail is a two mile hike out and returning to start for a four mile round trip. "Peak" is not quite to the one mile mark from the start. Nice trail. Shade at the beginning for those who turn back sooner to wait. Ranger available with nature displays, too.

The hike was amazing. The trail was so well maintained. The views where incredible. We took lots of photos. It had a very good visitor centre. It is a very long hike. Come prepared with lots of water. I would recommend if you have younger children don't expect to go to the end. But my 2 children over 7 made it. Good luck.

It was beautiful and well maintained. The volunteers were very friendly and kind. We went on a Saturday and the farmers market was very close and that was great too!

Beautiful hike! It’s not very hard BUT you need to make sure you’re wearing appropriate footwear. I had slide-on sneakers that didn’t have a good grip and I slipped a few times on the gravel.

Amazing hike to enjoy a AZ sunset! 3.5 miles up and back. Pro tip: At least get to a summit as you could get caught in valley or exit trailhead and miss the sunset. Either way, it’s a beautiful hike. Moderate to Strenuous. Can’t miss!

We visited PPP four years ago, and spent three days there again this year while visiting over spring break. The park is absolutely gorgeous and the staff is friendly and helpful. It's such a peaceful place; we could have stayed the entire day!! We highly recommend Pinnacle Peak Park - it's beauty at its best.
