A great experience for any hiker! Visit this world famous trail and see some great views of Phoenix and Scottsdale!

This is the quintessential hike when visiting or first moving to Phoenix; you might even call it a rite of passage. This challenging mountain has two main routes to tackle - one is a shorter distance to the top than the other, but much steeper. Go early in the morning (5 a.m. early not 9 a.m.) to beat the crowds and snag a prime parking spot in the lot at the foot of the mountain. Otherwise, you'll be hiking a mile just to get to the trail. Once at the top, the views can't be described or duplicated. It's an experience of a lifetime you just have to do once - with a lot of water.

Highest Mountain in the valley and the best place to see panoramic views of the Phoenix area. Echo Canyon is more of a steep climb while Cholla Trail is probably more popular and a little easier. Overall, this is the best hike/climb in the valley. Should take 2-3 hours.

This is a great place to go and hike or just look at the view. There are trails and roads so that everyone can enjoy this one. The valley is so large, that it makes the view from the top of the mountain even more panoramic than it would seem in other locations.

After a few days in the Phoenix area, the streets all start to look kind of the same - a mall, McDonalds, another mall, Starbucks, another mall, etc. Camelback is by far my favorite escape from all that, without having to drive too far at all. It's a great hike that offers spectacular views of the cactus-lined, red-rock valley surrounding Phoenix. Bring plenty of water and snacks.
