Camelback Mountain is one of the most popular Arizona hiking areas. It is a well-known landmark and the highest point in Phoenix.

Hikers, rock climbers, tourists, nature lovers and fitness buffs brave its sheer red sandstone cliffs and steep trails for an unparalled, 360 degree view of the Phoenix/Scottsdale area and the mountains beyond.

Climbing roughly 1,200 feet in just over one mile, it is an extremely strenuous hike by any standards.

While hiking to the summit of Camelback Mountain, you will experience the dramatic rock formations and a variety of desert plants and animals.
