Too many people but good trail

This is a great trail. It's a good workout at the beginning and then flattened out towards the top. Great views from the top. Get there early, it does get a little crowded

Lots of fun. Easy, great views, and a reward at the end.

Heavily trafficked trail. Well marked and maintained. Hike brings up up and down and then back up and down again with nice views of houses and golf course holes. Easy to get to. Good hike.

Awesome trail, beautiful canyon! Most commenters don't go all the way up the canyon to pima saddle- hard hike but so worth it!

A tremendous hike! Great views, excellent challenges, moderately/heavily trafficked throughout the park. I recommend an early arrival to ensure cool weather. The first mile on the trail is straight up switchbacks, be patient and push through, the top is well worth it..

I recommend a Camelpack with at least 2L of water and a light snack, I use Cliff Bars.

Plan to spend 2 to 3 hours hiking this trail all the way to Tom's Thumb.

This is fun, but difficult hike! It is 2.5 miles roundtrip and took us 2 hours 45 minutes including 2 breaks. I would only recommend this route for those in good physical shape and confidence on steep terrain. For those not meeting that criteria, I recommend the Cholla route which follows the "tail" of the Camel.

Prepare for a sustained, steep rock scramble (using hands and feet). There is a section of steep slick rock on the "neck" of the Camel where you must pull yourself using a steel railing. Good footwear is a must for the whole route.

We did this hike in the morning (8am) to avoid the heat and to ensure parking in the Echo lot. 2 liters of water and a light snack was more than enough to fuel me for the hike.

Enjoy!!

Love the views and terrain!

Very challenging hike with phenomenal views! Be sure to pack extra snacks and lots of water. Good shoes are a must. It's challenging going up and down. So rewarding when you get to the top!

Beautiful hike with changing scenery and not too many people. Front side has some steeps switchbacks then opens up on backside for a nice breeezy walk. Nesting falcons at the top!

Ok, easy hike. Our 4 & 5 yr old boys did just fine too. Lots of flowers. Ponds of water at the end, some had tadpoles. Many bees near water, but were not interested in ppl at all.
