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.

This hike is challenging, but if you are in shape, you'll be fine physically! My sister had a lot of fears on the way up so we didn't make it to the summit, but after we got back down, she was confident she could do that climb again to the top! Just go knowing that it is definitely more of a climb than most trails. I wondered how hard the hike down would be, but it was quite a bit easier than I was imagining on the way up. The views are absolutely STUNNING! We started at 5:15am and the weather was absolutely perfect.
