3.3 mile trail in north Phoenix, Arizona


Deem Hills is one of the newer parks in Phoenix to open (2010) and as such a lot of people still don't know it's there. This means that it has much more of a secluded feel then some of the more well established trails around. It IS popular with mountain bikers though so be on the lookout for them as they like the more sparse feel as well.

DIFFICULTY

Difficulty Rating
Moderate
difficulty detail
Be Aware of: Scrambling.
30 yr old Recommendation: Quick climb with some good city views at the top. This is a Moderate hike. The climb will get your heart going, but it's over much too quickly. The hike is kind of short. 

 

With the ultra popular Echo Canyon shut down for the majority of the year, hikers have flooded to the gates of the Piestewa Peak summit trail. Though there is a debate over the comparable difficulty of the two trails, avid Echoers run up and down Piestewa alongside the tourists and families there for the view. If this sounds overwhelming, and it certainly can be at points in the trail, we have news for you: This particular park offers almost45 miles of trails with varying difficulty and foot traffic.

 

More than just Piestewa Peak? Yes, much more.

 

McDowell Mountain: Wagner Short Loop Trail
A 1.6-mile flat trail through the north campground of McDowell Mountain Regional Park, this path is crisscrossed with many others that start around here. Despite the slight confusion at various forks in the road, it is a straightforward trail through washes and luscious desert. The path is particularly special in the spring, when the land is covered by huge patches of colorful wildflowers. Take in the views on this desert walk, as the McDowell Mountain range will provide a lovely back drop to this meandering desert trail.

 

Papago Park: Big Butte Loop Trail

A multi-purpose path that is just over a mile, the Big Butte Loop Trail is easily accessed via nearby popular destinations like the Phoenix Zoo and Desert Botanical Garden. Circumnavigating one of the larger sandstone buttes in the park, this trail begins at the Eliot Ramada and continues through the dry, red desert of Papago, passing the amphitheater on McDowell and gently curving back to the beginning. A level hike, the path is a geologist's dream, surrounded by interesting rock formations, though also providing us normal people with lovely views of the Valley and a nice desert escape in the middle of town.

Tom’s Thumb, North Side of the McDowell Mountains

This 3.7-mile trail weaves in and out of gorgeous vegetation and provides breathtaking views of Phoenix and Four Peaks. The most interesting feature of this hiking trail is the iconic Tom’s Thumb, which is a granite bump on the McDowell Mountain preserve. While the trail does pass by various other trails that offer climbing areas, hikers can opt to stay on the trail and climb Tom’s Thumb, something that most hiking trails do not offer. 

 

Piestewa Peak Summit, Phoenix mountain preserve

Located in Phoenix Mountain Park and Recreation area, this sprawling park offers an abundance  of wildlife, spacious views and a great workout for hikers. Phoenix Parks and Recreations public information officer David Urbinato enjoys this hike but said that the trial is always crowded.

Compared with many of our other areas, you don't get a very good exposure to the Sonoran Desert as you're on a ridge for much of the hike. And it's very difficult...I think many people underestimate how challenging it can be.

Roll out of bed and you can be on any of these wonderful trails from your new Phoenix apartment home.
