Phoenix Hiking Tips
- Hike early in the morning before it gets too hot
- Let someone know where you’re hiking
- Bring lots of water. A good rule of thumb is to start hiking back to your car when you’ve used 1/3 to 1/2 of your drinking water.
- If the outside temperature is 100 degrees or higher think about how hot the ground is on your dog’s paws. It is illegal to take your dog on a Phoenix hiking trail when the temperature reaches 100 degrees.
