Great views right away of the valley and it gets better, very steep at the top, was harder for me coming down off the rocks , take advantage of any shade when taking a break and take plenty of fluids very rewarding hike

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

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!
