On The Rocks – Picacho Peak

Hey everyone! Welcome to On The Rocks, I’m your trail guide, Claudia Faust. Every week I’ll take you on a new adventure as I check hikes, waterfalls, and other outdoor activities off of my Arizona bucket list. Today, we’re climbing Picacho Peak!

Picacho Peak isn’t for the light-hearted. This hike features grueling inclines, steep cliffs, cables, and more! If you’re an adrenaline junkie or thrill-seeker, this hike is the perfect addition to your bucket list. Don’t be fooled though, there were plenty of kids around the age of 10 doing this hike as well as some people that were probably a couple of decades older than me along the trail. 

It costs seven dollars per vehicle to get into the park but it’s worth every last penny. I had to repeat this hike so I could share it with all of you!
