Beautiful! I only drove past them. They are breathtakingly beautiful. I live in NM, so I see mountains ranges daily, but never tire of them. They are one of the most fascinating acts of creation.

I have hiked up Camelback Mountain 5 times and every time it is amazing. In the past, it was not unusual for you to wait 45 mins to get a parking space (at Echo Canyon Trail off of McDonald) however this time we parked the...More

From the Eco Canyon side, it has three challenging sections. If you are a beginner, you could stop at the 1st section, which is ~10-15 min hike. Still, you will see some great view of Phoenix. If you can make it to "rock climbing" and...More

I've always wanted to check out the popular Camelback Mtn. Got the opportunity last weekend-the Saturday before Mother's Day. My son and I took the Cholla trail, which is considered the "easier" of the hard trails. A lot of friendly hikers. We made it to...More

WOW take lots of water. I am from similar altitude and heat but the heat still got to me. I had enough water for the climb but not for the return. Beautiful views and a great sense of accomplishment when finished.

The warning signs are for real folks. Hike early if between April and October. And take lots of water. The west approach is seriously one of the toughest hikes my smoking hot and fit wife have ever done. So be smart. Be prepared and enjoy...More

I like the short Camelback hike a lot. There are hand rails on the steep slippery rocky parts that help a lot. Higher up you will be doing a lot of "bouldering" to get to the top. It's a great work out. The downside is...More

I have hiked to the top a couple of times, and I am a 50-year old in moderately good shape. The hike up is more strenuous than you would think, given the popularity. Don't try this unless you are in good shape and your legs...More

This is the most dangerous mountain to hike in Phoenix. It is very rocky & slippery. It had the most mountain rescues here. People need to be prepared to hike this mountain!!! Only experienced hikers should be hiking here.

Wow, what an amazing experience hiking up this beautiful mountain. We hiked up from the Echo Valley Trail, which is no joke. When you read that it is hard......it is. None the less, the feeling of accomplishment after arriving at the summit is worth the...More
