This trek is a popular but serene outdoor experience in North Phoenix, frequented by both newcomers and natives. Shaw Butte Trail is a great example of the “classic” hike you’ll find all over the valley. It’s moderately flat, with a healthy dose of switchbacks and small summits as the trail leads to the mountain’s peak. The mountain is relatively small, but the view from the top offers 360 degree views of the entire city and beyond. Explore the two radio towers and the old burned down restaurant for a break and some extra adventure on your trip.
