My son and I really enjoyed this workout hike. The 40th Street Parking lot had been full, as evidenced by the cars parked along the street, but there were several spaces available when we got there at 0900 hours.
There were only about 20 other hikers on the portion South of of Phx Mountain Preserves trail 100.
The views of Camelback and Piestewa are great (see photos). The trail is quite rocky in places, but I felt it was more enjoyable than the other popular hikes.
A campfire must be extinguished by drowning it with water, stirring with a shovel, and repeating that process until the campfire is cold to the touch. A campfire is still a danger if it has any trace of heat, and must not be left or abandoned. Wildfires can begin by abandoned campfires that rebuild heat on windy days and then blowing embers ignite surrounding grasses and brush.
Hear ye hear ye!
