Christina Faul started this petition to Picacho Peak Arizona State Park and

This place needs to be shut down! There have been so many fatalities there, including my sister.  Yet, the State Park still takes money from people, and lets them hike this treacherous mountain, without warning of having nowhere to escape the weather elements. It is a death trap! My Mom, and two other sisters tried to hike it on a 60 degree day, and could not do the whole thing. There is nowhere to escape from this mountain, not even checkpoints.  Even if you go with enough water, it is not enough!  I know people will still go, but the State could at least post signs along the way saying how many lives have been lost there, as well as have multiple ranger and first aid stations set up in case of emergency.  If they are going to operate it as a tourist attraction they need to have a better emergency management system.  My sister had plenty of water, all she needed was something cold applied to her body.  A simple ice pack applied to her head, and she would still be alive today.  The picture above is the last picture my sister would ever take, before Picacho Peak took her life.
