Piestewa Peak in Phoenix, Arizona
Travel with me to Piestewa Peak (formerly Squaw Peak) in Phoenix, Arizona. The Summit Trail hike is discussed, as well as the mountain’s history and wildlife.
You can view the full hike up Piestewa Peak’s Summit Trail here:
***The Phoenix Area’s Parks and Preserves (2007) by Donna and George Hartz - Provides several intriguing late nineteenth and early twentieth century photographs from Phoenix’s parks and preserves, including the Phoenix Mountains and Squaw Peak. I recommend checking this out if you are interested in the history of Phoenix's mountains or seeing more early photographs of Squaw Peak.
***Squaw Peak: A Hiker’s Guide (1997) by Jack San Felice - A history of the peak and detailed information on the various trails, including the Summit Trail.
***60 Hikes within 60 Miles: Phoenix (2009) by Charles Liu - I highly recommend checking out this book if you’re an avid hiker or intend to hike other trails in the Phoenix area. It includes detailed overviews on several wonderful hikes, including Piestewa Peak’s Summit Trail and Freedom Trail on pages 48-56.
***A Natural History of the Sonoran Desert (2015) edited by Steven J. Philips & Patricia Wentworth Comus - Produced by the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, this book is the authoritative text on the Sonoran Desert. It is absolutely the best read on the environment, plants, and animals of this unique ecosystem and will greatly inform any travel or hike through the areas of central and southern Arizona, southeast California, Baja California, or Sonora. Originally published in 1999, the updated second edition came out in 2015. The original edition is available for a cheaper price here.

Sentinel Peak in Tucson, Arizona
Travel with me to Sentinel Peak in Tucson, Arizona where I explore this iconic landmark's history and influence upon the city. The peak is popularly known as A Mountain because of the giant A on its side for the University of Arizona.
Additional Note: Solomon Warner erected a flourmill on the slope of Sentinel Peak between 1874-75. This mill led some people to refer to Sentinel Peak as Warner's Mill during that time.
