Ranger was correct in saying don't be fooled by the 2 mile distance. If you take your time and enjoy time at the top, give yourself at least 3 hrs. More climbing up boulders than hike. Beautiful views all the way up. Went on Saturday afternoon and had no trouble parking or heat issues. Less crowded than other Camelback hike.

This is the trail to hike on Camelback. Much more organic with various terrain vs Echo. Must do. Not as crowded.

It’s a fun trail, very difficult, but not very organic. The beginning has several fences, railings, and rail ties which kills the vibe for me. Much prefer Cholla trail on the other side.

One of my favorite mountains for a good workout. Kicks my butt every time!

I hiked echo canyon in April and loved it BUT it was difficult for me. I consider myself to be in decent shape and expected this hike to be easier than echo canyon and while the first part of this trail was easier (still a climb, winding back and forth) it took longer than Echo canyon and the last half of this is definitely a climb! This was almost 2 hours for us and we didn't stop (except at the top) so plan a little time for this one. The views are amazing! Definitely recommended!
