Phoenix - Living in Phoenix ensures many things: Endless days of sunshine. A show-stopping monsoon season. The occasional run-in with a rattlesnake (yeah, it happens). But when it comes to tacos, one issue is guaranteed: A desirable one is simply a stone’s throw away from at any place you are in the city. With that variety of density, it may additionally be difficult to choose.
The panoramic view from the "hump" of this iconic landmark, named for its resemblance to a kneeling camel, is really worth scaling its two complex trails, Echo Canyon and Cholla. Hikers achieve 1,200 toes in elevation to the summit, which looks out over the city and Phoenix Mountains Preserve. Camelback is one of the most popular cities trekking spots in Phoenix, so assume path visitors and consider trekking on weekdays.
During hot-weather months, hike in the early morning and drink lots of water. See our outside safety guidelines web page for greater data before you head out.
