Did this one on a cool morning. It’s the most technical of the hikes we have done in the area. Footing is a bit slippy. Lots of people on the trail. Amazing view at the top

Climbing Camelback mountain is the equivalent of walking up the Empire State Building..... except harder! Wow, what a pretty and picturesque site - except the houses built into it. A natural wonder with breathtaking views. The higher you go the thinner the air gets. It...More

The Camelback Mountain stands high above Phoenix. It is grand and majestic. It is a landmark that stands watch over Phoenix, you can’t miss it- just look up.
