Piestewa Peak/Dreamy Draw Recreation Area information
Dotted with saguaros, ocotillos and other local cacti, this convenient summit was previously known as Squaw Peak. It was renamed for local Native American soldier Lori Piestewa who was killed in Iraq in 2003. Be forewarned: the trek to the 2608ft summit is hugely popular and the park can get jammed on winter weekends. Parking lots northeast of Lincoln Dr between 22nd and 24th Sts fill early. Dogs are allowed on some park trails but not the Summit Trail.
The peak is bordered by two recreation areas, Phoenix Mountains (2701 E Squaw Peak), where the Summit Trail begins, and Dreamy Draw (2421 E Northern Ave).
