I lived in Tempe for 4 years in the early '90s but somehow never decided to go climb Camelback.

Finally did so. Pics and Commentary here.

Great hike via Summit Trail! A little steaper then I had originally planned but that made the experience even better. I can't wait to go back and do it again.

Great little hike, great city views. The hike was made more challenging by the crowds of people coming down while I was going up.

Yep, that would be masochistic me, hiking Camelback in the middle of August during the hottest part of the day.

Went for a short jaunt while on vacation. I was lucky to get into the parking area. The Fire Department was on scene and while I was on the summit a rescue helicopter landed and ferried someone off to the hospital. Very nice views. Temps were moderate.

Date Climbed: May 7, 2010


I've climbed it many times, but as someone still learning, I enjoy it throughly every time- total IPod friendly jaunt. 5/7/10 is probably the last time I'll get to climb it during the summer after work, as the rocks at 4:30 in the afternoon are insanely hot in spots.

Date Climbed: Mar 23, 2010


From the hotel and back. Lots of tourists. Nobody else running it when I was on it. I think I had a good time up and especially down. I can't say I really like blue paint on rocks though.

Date Climbed: Feb 2, 2010


Nice hike, When I leave home and it's 9 degrees and i drive 11 hours to hike in the high 70s, It's awesome! 40 minutes up and 15 down. Lots of people on the trail. I saw a roadrunner right on top. I went up by way of the Cholla Trail.

Date Climbed: Jan 18, 2010


Came to Phoenix for the Rock & Roll Half Marathon yesterday. Today we hiked to Camelback Summit via Cholla Trail. It rained on us for half mile or so then turned out to be a nice morning. Great views! Did some geocaching on the mountain too.

Did this in the afternoon on a full belly after a big Thanksgiving dinner. Did it in about an hour and fifteen minutes finishing at sunset. Nice leg workout.

This was a great little climb with lots of leg-burning, scrambly bits! I've personally never seen so many people on one mountain before...I made it from TH to summit in 44:18, but a good amount of time was wasted in waiting for the line of people. The trail is very well maintained, but offers a lot of options for going off on your own. It took me over an hour to find a parking spot though, so go early!

Did both ways, Echo Canyon and Cholla. AZ favorite

BethSCholla and Echo Canyon  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 2, 2008


Climbed pretty much every week from late May to late Aug last year. Both are nice trails, Echo is steeper and shorter, sometimes tougher to get parking, especially around sunrise. I also did the loop (up Cholla and down Echo) then back around to the car for a bit longer hike, though some of it is on sidewalk!
