Join Chip and Chris on a two to three-hour, expertly led hike of the Phoenix Mountain Preserve. We have two hikes available to you; easy/moderate and difficult, depending on your experience and comfort level. Enjoy the beauty of your surroundings as we recount the history of Arizona. Discover some of the Preserve's hidden gems, like old granite mine shafts that tell stories of the gold rush during the mid 1800s or wild desert flowers that only grow on particular and hidden slopes of the mountain. There will also be plenty of opportunity for great photos and spectacular views. These hikes can be customized for all levels of fitness and hiking ability. Our guides are trained and educated in Wilderness First Aid and CPR.
Chris and Chip are professional hiking guides for most of the major luxury resorts in Phoenix; including the Waldorf Astoria Arizona Biltmore, OMNI Montelucia, and others. We have led hikes and expeditions for a combined 25 years and are certified NOLS Wilderness Medicine & First Responders. We love our home, and our community - and most of all - we love sharing it with our guests, visitors and friends! We prefer the intimacy of a small group, but can accommodate larger parties or families if necessary.
Light snack options will be provided - we will do our best to accommodate any food restrictions or allergies.
Water available for guests.
Guides will be equipped with necessary gear (packs, first aid, etc.) and can carry small personal items for the guests.
We will be hiking in and around the Phoenix Mountain Preserve. Attention will be focused on summiting the Piestewa Peak for experienced hikers, although beginner and moderate trails are available in the same area. The Preserve is one of the state's two biggest parks of it's kind and the foothills and walking paths offer a variety of trails to enjoy.
Please let our guides know your hiking experience and general fitness level, so that we can customize your trail and hiking tour accordingly!
