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 almost 45 miles of trails with varying difficulty and foot traffic.
More than just Piestewa Peak? Yes, much more.
