The mountain offers a 1 mile trail with so many warnings.... yes, it’s in the Arizona sun but it’s not difficult for normally-fit people. There seems to be a high number of half-naked hikers doing the trail. Free parking, nice views.

My daughter and I hiked to the top last week while on vacation. It was a challenging hike (esp since we didn't bring proper footwear) but we made it to the top. I'll def do it again the next time I'm in Phoenix.

We went with our 8 and 13 yr old and just did a short part of the trail. It was very manageable with the kids but must wear the right shoes. The park is open until sunset and this was definitely the right time to...More

Need water and proper shoes. Enjoy the landscape view and Arizona plants and vegetation.. Early morning walk probably recommend during warmer seasons.

Came after work for a hike up the Camelback mountain trail. Beautiful trail in Phoenix, but not a hike for the faint of heart. Going up is, well, strenuous, but doable with breaks. The first quarter mile is just a trail, but somewhat steep and...More

You can’t think Phoenix without thinking Camelback Mountain. It defines the valley in so many ways. The hike is not for someone wanting a leisurely stroll. Both route to the top are challenging for the average person but well worth the effort and experience.

Husband and I are 63 and in reasonably fit condition. I went 3/4 of the way but he was able to reach the top and said it was well worth the hike up. Lots of rocks, so wear sturdy hiking shoes, and bring plenty of...More

IT is hard, it is hot, it is a lot of absolute vertical climbing. It is really hard and can be very dangerous. We felt a tremendous sense of pride and accomplishment once we are done, but it took about 3 hours to complete the...More

Hello, bring a lot of water. Espacialy if you got during the heat peak of the day. Do not go off the trail. In my opinion, Echo trail is ''safer''. Take your time and it's going to be fine. Also bring some snacks to give you... More

If you go up and down from the Echo Canyon trailhead, you can definitely do it in 2-3 hours. If you do the whole length from Echo Canyon to Cholla trailhead or vice versa and have to get an Uber or walk back to your car... More

It depends on the time of day! It can be 114 degrees at 1 PM. Best to hike VERY early in the AM and bring more water than you think you need. Lately the average temp has been 104.
