Phoenix Mountains Preserve Information

The Phoenix Mountains Preserve is an island of undisturbed Sonoran Desert in the heart of the Phoenix metropolis. The preserve is rich with large mountains and plenty of local wildlife. The mountains beckon anyone looking for a challenging day-hike, or someone just wanting a glimpse of wild nature within the city. A large network of trails lead people throughout the washes and protected desert. More challenging trails bring hikers up to the top of Piestawa Peak and Two-Bit Peak. Nearby is also the famous Camelback Mountain, providing hikers with two challenging trails up to its summit. From here, hikers have an outstanding view of the city and the desert mountains beyond the city's sprawling limits.
