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. Bring water!

Hard, but fun. Great rock scrambles. It wasn't overly crowded but there were a good handful of people that didn't have awareness of others. If I wasn't situationally aware and courteous of other we could have had a couple of accidents. Always be aware of what's above you-going up and coming down.

A good one. It's 45 degree inclinations at one point gets challenging, but the good thing is, the same keeps you motivated.

This is my favorite mainly because it's so close to home. Get there early because it gets crowded!
