I'd like to hike on Christmas morning. Probably 7 - 8 miles with part of it being up Piestewa Peak. Not sure of the exact route yet. I'd like to start at the first parking lot that is on Squaw Peak drive. This is the road that takes you to the Piestewa Peak trailhead. However, I'd like to meet on the first parking lot on the right before you go through the park gates. I drive an aqua Honda Civic with a roof rack. There will be some steepness involved. Please be in decent shape. I'm not going to run but I'm not going to go slowly either. I'd like to work up a good sweat. About 2.5 miles/hr. Finding a parking spot can be a challenge sometimes so come a little bit earlier than 8am to ensure you find a parking spot. If the lot is full, you'll have to park somewhere else and walk in. So be there about 10 minutes early to make sure you have time to do this if needed.
