This is one of my favs in the area. Even though I live just a mile or so from the Cholla trailhead for Camelback, I’d much rather drive north and over to Sunrise and do this hike. It’s not as challenging ... but no crowds and friendlier people who respect each other on the trails. The views from the top are great and it is a good workout going up and great trail run down. I work in the area, so it’s a great pre-work hike. If you are hiking to both connect with nature and get your workout in, this one is a great option.

Moderately steep trail. Took me less than 1 hr going up and 35 mins down. Great views!

Stunning hike. Great workout. Not too busy. Loose rock on the trail.

I am split on whether i should rate this hike highly because i like the reasonably quick elevation gain this hike offers over the other side which is longer but prettier and quieter. (Lost dog wash trail head to sunrise peak). Definitely got my heart rate up on all times i did the hike which I felt was more strenuous than the climb from the other side. Shade on this hike is about 60% of the time in the early morning. If you try to keep the pace up on this hike, you can get a solid workout.
