After reading that this was an easy hike, we did it. It is not easy! It was a rock climb, not a hike and I left with skinned up knees. It was so worth it though! The views were fabulous. It took about an hour to get up and 45 minutes down. My 9 year old climbed in her flip... More

I would hate to do this hike if you the temperature is over 80 degrees or on a weekend. Fortunately the small parking lot somewhat restricts the number of hikers. Well maintained but a steep scramble over and around rocks over most of it. Not much room if it becomes crowded but all were very respectful when my wife and... More

A beautiful hike but be prepared, it becomes steep right away and becomes difficult quite quickly. The footing is uneven and Rocky so bring good shoes. Once you get 20 minutes up, the views make it worth the hike.

This was a great hike but you have to be prepared for it. You are pretty much climbing up rock most of the way. And going down is hard on the knees. But it was fun and different and offered a great view.

Went on a Sunday, arrived just before 8am but the parking lot was already full (started at the Echo Canyon Trailhead)! I would recommend coming as early as you can also because it is cooler and there are fewer people the earlier you go (seems like it can get pretty crowded on the trail). Amazing hike though. Bring water, wear... More

Amazing hike with amazing views! Entered at the Echo Canyon trailhead - the beginning of which is a gentle path that quickly transitions into a rock scramble and remains that way for most of the hike. It's challenging - make sure you're able to maneuver reasonably well as some sections require holding onto steel railings while climbing up boulders. Bring... More

Beautiful park! The hike is not for everyone. We went about a third of the way up to some great scenery. From there it was too much for us at our age. 55+. Parking is very limited. We went there on the weekend and the lot was full. Went back during the week and drove around in circles for 20... More

One of the nicest areas and mountains to either hike or stroll around at the bottom. The "praying monk" rock is attached to the mountain. Many people visit each year.

If you like hiking and enjoy a challenge, then the Camelback Mountain is a good choice. We did the Echo trail. It was a Sunday afternoon so we had to wait a little for a spot to open up in the parking lot, but the trail didn't seem overly crowded. While there were some stretches where you pretty much picked... More
