Moderate

Easy

Many trails traverse Piestewa Peak, ranging in difficulty from easy to extremly difficult. The locale, named in honor of Army Spc. Lori Ann Piestewa, the first known Native American woman to die in combat in the U.S. military, is the second highest point in the Phoenix Mountains (after Camelback Mountain) and sits within the Piestewa Peak Recreation Area within the Phoenix Mountain Preserve. For a moderate hike, try the 1.5-mile Nature Trail. The trail can be rocky and tricky at times, but offers stunning scenery. The Nature Trail joins the longer Freedom Trail for approximately a half-mile, and both guide hikers around the circumference of mountains, rewarding efforts with views of the city and park. Neither of these trails heads to the summit. To climb to the top of Piestewa Peak, hikers must navigate the Summit Trail, a 1.2-mile hike that incorporates a more than 1,200 foot elevation gain. The Summit Trail is rated extremely strenuous and difficult by the City of Phoenix, and should only be attempted by more experienced hikers. To access the Nature Trail trailhead, head to the Apache picnic area at the end of the entrance road in Phoenix Mountains Park and Recreation Area. 7200 N. Squaw Peak Drive. www.phoenix.com/ parks/trails

Beginning hikers find the perfect trails at Papago Park. There are multiple hikes to choose from, ranging from a half-mile to 2.7 miles. All are easy, and depending on the trail, hikers are rewarded with views of the iconic Hole-in-theRock rock formation, Phoenix Zoo, Phoenix Municipal Golf Course and/or Desert Botanical Garden. The dirt 2.3-mile Double Butte Loop Trail offers the most comprehensive hike through the park, while the paved 825-foot Hole-in-the-Rock Trail takes hikers straight to the unique rock formation. The trails throughout are generally smooth, with little elevation. Papago Park is divided into the west side and east side by Galvin Parkway. Follow the signs for the trailheads. 625 N. Galvin Parkway. www.phoenix.gov/parks/trails

»

Difficult

The iconic Camelback Mountain (named for its unique shape resembling a camel), offers hikers a challenging climb that’s rewarded with stunning 360-degree views. Choose from two trails, which begin on opposite sides of the mountain. Each gains about 1,200 feet before they meet at the 2,704-foot summit. Access the Cholla Trail from a side street called Cholla Lane. Though the trail to the top is longer, it is a more gradual climb. The Echo Canyon Trail begins from a parking lot off of Paradise Valley’s McDonald Drive on the rockier, northwest side of the mountain, and is so remarkably steep at some points that handrails and fences were permanently installed for assistance. 5700 N. Echo Canyon Parkway; 6300 E. Cholla Lane, Paradise Valley. www.phoenix.gov/parks 27

THE GUIDE

Navigate The Jerome Grand Hotel The Jerome Grand Hotel is known not just for its distinction as the largest National Historic Landmark building in Jerome, but for its paranormal sightings and experiences. It was constructed in 1926 as the United Verde Hospital, which closed in 1950. The building then sat unused for 44 years, before being reinvented as the hotel. Guests and staff here have reported hearing coughing, voices in empty rooms, smells, doors opening and closing themselves, ghost sightings and more. In 2011, the hotel was featured on “Ghost Adventures.” 200 Hill St., Jerome, 888.817.6788. www.jerome grandhotel.net. Arizona Map K8

[WHERE INSIDE]

Valley of the Sun What is your favorite part of what you’re doing now? There are a lot of favorite parts, but I especially love when I hear from someone who made one of my recipes and enjoyed it. My scalloped potatoes are one of the recipes I hear back about the most, and it’s always a hit!

Joanie Simon [Foo d Blogger]

People from across the nation turn to Valley resident Joanie Simon for food inspiration. Simon hosts a weekly live cooking show, “The Dinner Bell,” on Facebook; produces popular YouTube videos showing how to create her many recipes; is seen on regular cooking segments on “Good Morning Arizona” and “Arizona Daily Mix;” and runs the website www.joaniesimon.com, a mix of unique recipes, a blog and stunning food photography. You quit your day job to launch your company! What inspired the change? I was going through

a personal journey of recovery and healing, and realized that I was not in my job because I loved it, but because I

56 W H E R E P H O E N I X + S COT T S D A L E I O C TO B E R 2017

felt obligated to it. I didn’t know what I was going to do specifically when I left my day job, but I knew it would be something creative and would involve food. How did you get started in the food industry? I loved cooking as a kid, even though I didn’t come from a particularly “foodie” family. I was always drawn to the kitchen and reading recipes. My passion really ignited when I started getting to know local chefs through my work in the restaurant

What, if anything, inspires your recipes? A lot of them are inspired by the food of my childhood. My mom wasn’t a super foodie, but she had some solid standards and we made a lot of food memories. I have taken a lot of her recipes and re-made or updated them, like chicken enchiladas, oven baked chicken and chocolate chip cookies. I also pull influence from the Southwest, growing up with great Mexican food. What are your favorite local ingredients to cook with? Hayden Flour Mills’ grain products are all excellent. I especially love their pastry flour, which makes all baked goods like scones and cookies light and fluffy. I’m also a sucker for snazzy packaging and I love their branding. What do you like most about living in the Valley? It’s home. I’m a third generation Arizonan and

I love knowing stories from my grandparents (and great-grandparents!) about Phoenix back-inthe-day—like the dining hot spot, Oscar Taylor, and the awesome baked goods from Guggy’s. I also love that it’s a giant small town. It’s the sixth largest city in the nation, but still has the closeness of a smaller city. Favorite local restaurants? My favorite brunch spot, hands-down, is Proof at the Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale. Obviously, the service is beyond outstanding and they always keep my coffee filled. The food is the perfect balance of clean and simple, but classic and comforting. I love the view from the patio, too. Favorite spots around town? Aside from the meat and seafood department? I love 7th Avenue’s vintage shops for unique food props. I’m always on the lookout for funky plates, bowls and flatware to use in my food photography. To end…what’s one piece of cooking advice you can share? Don’t overcomplicate cooking. That’s what I did for years. I was always using too many ingredients, trying to make food more difficult than it needed to be. The best food is many times the simplest. Get good ingredients, keep them few and treat them well.
