Echo Canyon Summit Trail is a 2.5 mile heavily trafficked out and back trail located near Phoenix, Arizona that features beautiful wild flowers and is only recommended for very experienced adventurers. The trail is primarily used for hiking, rock climbing, nature trips, and birding and is accessible year-round.
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.
Satisfying great hike. Coming down was slightly difficult as it got slippery after some rain.
It was nice on a cooler day, more people the later in the day you go
Be sure to bring plenty of water for this trail. This is definitely for those with prior hiking experience. Arriving early also makes things easier as this trail is highly trafficked and parking is limited.
Surprisingly satisfying hike. Steep at times, scrambling but very doable !
Was difficult on the way up easy on the way down. .. great phot opps on the way up and nice panoramic view from the top.
Beautiful day & awesome trail. Definitely one of the best trails in Phoenix I've been to so far. Wouldn't recommend this trail for beginner hikers or young children. Lots of climbing & constant incline. Looking forward to going again soon.
Tough trail! But worth it once I reach the top. The view was breathtaking.
