What you'll do

Join Chip and Chris on a two to three-hour, expertly led hike of the Phoenix Mountain Preserve. We have two hikes available to you; easy/moderate and difficult, depending on your experience and comfort level.

Enjoy the beauty of your surroundings as we recount the history of Arizona. Discover some of the Preserve's hidden gems, like old granite mine shafts that tell stories of the gold rush during the mid 1800s or wild desert flowers that only grow on particular and hidden slopes of the mountain. There will also be plenty of opportunity for great photos and spectacular views.

These hikes can be customized for all levels of fitness and hiking ability. Our guides are trained and educated in Wilderness First Aid and CPR.

Where you'll be

We will be hiking in and around the Phoenix Mountain Preserve. Attention will be focused on summiting the Piestewa Peak for experienced hikers, although beginner and moderate trails are available in the same area.

The Preserve is one of the state's two biggest parks of it's kind and the foothills and walking paths offer a variety of trails to enjoy.

Chip was a wonderful guide and excellent information source about the area, the mountain trail, wildlife, plants, etc. I would highly recommend Chip and Chris to locals as well as folks from out of town.

My sister and I had an amazing hike with chip. He’s an excellent guide and knows the desert so well, you’ll learn a ton and really be blown away by the views. Chip is easy going and personable and really makes this experience special. I highly recommend this if you’re considering a hike in Phoenix!

Chip was the guide on our hike. My family and I are not familiar with the desert and it was great having him with us to inform us along the way about the landscape and wildlife. We also would have had no idea of where to start hiking and he took us on a great trail for our skill level. Had a great time and was definitely worth it to have a guide.

Thoughtful, knowledgeable and entertaining guide. Told us what he knew and let us know what he didn’t. Definitely better than doing it without a guide. Worth the extra coin.

Even though it was a pretty hot day in Phoenix, the hike was definitely still enjoyable. I know I probably would have gotten lost if I tried going on my own. Chip was very knowledgeable about the area. I would definitely go again, maybe when it is a little cooler...
