This place a wonderful place to hike. But be careful with the regular hiker. They almost ran me over. When you get to top. You will see the beauty landscape with the wonderful view of Arizona. They do have a place to rest and enjoy the weather if your not a hiker.

I took my niece who was visiting from New York here and she loved it. The hike/climb is non stop climbing up and over rocks and boulders, there are stairs to climb and even a pole built into the mountain for you to hold on to going up and coming down. Once you get to the top the views are... More

Awesome place to hike! Beautiful scenery. Would recommend for hikers with some experience, or those in good physical shape. Be sure to bring a bottle of water with you.

Very fun hike, however, not so fun in the middle of the day in 100+ degree weather!! If you are not an AZ native, try the hike early in the morning or later in the day. This was a tough hike - rock scramble throughout a majority of it. When you think you see the top, KEEP GOING!! Took about... More

The trip up the mountain is very steep. It may not be good for inexperienced hikers. Take plenty of water! The views from the top are well worth it!!

The journey was ridiculously HARD!!! I WAS SO OUT OF SHAPE BUT IT WAS WORTH IT. I enjoyed the beautiful view. And it was an amazing first time hiking experience. I expect to come back soon and with more endurance ♡♡♡♡

We chose our hotel based on the fact that we had beautiful views of camelback mountain and that it was a short ten minute walk for us to get here. I recommend going right when they open which is at sunrise or around 6am. We went at around 7 and it was a warm climb. My husband took a backpack... More

The most popular mountain hike in the Phoenix valley, it's a worthwhile experience. But use caution! Phoenicians know that you do NOT hike anywhere in the summer afternoons, AND if you must--be sure to take plenty of water, your cell phone, and go with a friend. Also, on Camelback, be sure to stay on the trails. People who wander off... More
