One of our special places to visit . . .. is Camelback Mountain. It's a short drive up the south side and down, but a pretty view. It's been a hallmark of this area and is beautiful to view from a distance. Don't forget to see the back, with the Praying Monk!

Just remember...it's easier to go up than down. It's worth if for the views. Very steep areas in some spots. This is not for beginners. Bring plenty of water even in the cool winter as the sun is brutal.

This is an amazing hike but not for the weak, it was a lot tougher than I thought. I was fine going up but you will get tired. (you still have to come down) Just be prepared water, GOOD shoes (hikers) and you will be good to go. You need to be in shape so don't try this if you are not "ready".

I find the area around Camelback mountain one of the most relaxing places on earth. It is pretty chill and beautiful to boot. I wouldn't mine owning a room over a garage outside of one of those huge houses.

Moderate exercise but it was the height that made my heart pump. I had to give up aroun 90% of the way up, but found the descent easier than the ascent. My daughter and friend finished the climb and really enjoyed it - the views are fantastic. Worth a go but you need a head for heights and sure footing.
