NileGuide Expert Says:
The tallest peak in the Valley, the summit trail at Squaw Peak is perpetually filled with hikers looking for a good workout. While it can get a little crowded on the weekends in season, the trail's views from the top are absolutely worth the 1.5 mile trek up the hill. For a quieter hike, keep driving past the summit trailhead and try one of the other trails at the northernmost parking lot. There's more shade there, too.
