There are many reasons to take Freedom Trail over the popular Piestewa Peak Summit Trail (page 52). Some do it to get more scenic variety. Others prefer to get closer to the desert. Some hike it because it is less strenuous than the Summit Trail, and others want a longer hike. Whatever your reason for hiking the Freedom Trail, you will enjoy this loop around Piestewa Peak.
