IMG_1993     Squaw Peak is climbed 2,000 times a week by residents and visitors seeking a great cardio-vascular workout. Great views for a family outing. The average hike from bottom to top is 45 minutes, but time really depends on each hiker’s capabilities.

     Hiking Tips:pp

– Drink water, drink water, drink water.
– Stay on the trail, otherwise you could be meeting some new friends (rattlesnakes).
– Unfortunately Dogs are not allowed on this trail.
– Parking patience is extremely important. Be sure you wait your turn. People can really get pissed when you cut in front of them.
– Hiking courtesy: Hikers going up have the right of way. Be sure to be courteous.
