6 Photos To Inspire You To Hike Camelback Mountain!

I’m STILL working on the Ultimate Arizona Bucket List, there is just so much to do here in Arizona…but you already know that I will be including plenty of hiking!

Camelback Mountain is for sure the BUSIEST and most popular mountain in Phoenix. Why is it so popular? It’s popular because it is home to two of the most difficult trails in the valley: Echo Trail (1.2 miles out and back) and Cholla Trail (1.5 miles out and back). Cholla Trail is the ‘easier’ hike but only because it’s a little longer and so you don’t feel as much elevation gain as Echo but it’s still really difficult! Both give you an incredible workout but only one really tests your mental grit. Echo Trail has you almost rock climbing and holding on to handrails to get yourself up.
