Hiked the Cholla Trail head area. It was a great hike with lot's of creatures including a bearded dragon and some jack rabbits. You can go as far up as you want at your own pace. The total trail is about 1.5 miles. I rode my bike to get to the base and that was strenuous enough going up hill... More

Close proximity to Marriott Resort, awesome challenge. Glad I did it, but you must go early to beat the heat. Requires two water bottles and a decent level of fitness.

I hiked Camelback in the middle of the day in the summer, which I don't recommend. I took plenty of water along in a backpack. The view of Phoenix from the summit was beautiful, but would be much more appreciated in the morning pre-heat.

If you are in need of a great workout with a view. This is for you! It's a great climb to the top, and a great view of Phoenix once you make it to the top!

It's wonderful, and the views of Phoenix, and the other mountains surrounding it are well worth seeing.

This is wonderful, active family fun but be prepared - it is a climb not a simple hike. We tackled the Cholla Trail (Trail C). Not all of us made it to the top but we all enjoyed the experience and view. As others have written: - Get a ride to the trail head as parking is crazy - Wear... More

Pretty hiking, but crowded on the weekend. Lots of different levels. Desert atmosphere, so don't expect shade trees!

One of Phoenix's hidden gems is Camelback Mountain. I would rate this mountain as a medium level hike, as it can be grueling at certain points. It is well worth making it to the top and taking in the wonderful views. Make sure to bring water, good hiking shoes, and a hat. This is a popular hike so doing worry... More

Fabulous, somewhat challenging hike on a hot day. Chose to hike the Cholla Trail side as there was no parking available at Echo Park. Glad we did. Echo park trail has handrails and fencing in some of the more challenging parts which takes away from the experience in my opinion. Great views! Make sure you take plenty of water and... More

This is a great workout in the early morning. I did a run/walk and the view at the top is spectacular. Well worth the trip to PHX and enjoy the desert.
