Camelback Mountain is iconic throughout the Phoenix area, and is perhaps the most popular of in-town hiking locations. Extreme heat, no shade, and thick crowds make this a difficult hike during the summer months. The summit offers view of the Phoenix metro area.

Difficult and very slick in the rain but completely worth it!

I give the trail 5 stars and the crowd 2 stars. I only do this trail early on weekends or on weekdays. The trail itself is quick but challenging and beautiful.

More walk/climbing over holders and rocks than "trail", but I made it to the top and back.

This is a beautiful trail but should only be attempted by those that aren't afraid to attack some steep rock climbs. It's a tough hike but worth it. Can't wait to go again!

Its a pretty steep trail. I underestimated it lol. Bring plenty of water, I ran out halfway down on my descend. All in all it was an awesome experience.
