Camelback Mountain Summit Trail

Phoenix, AZ

A nice, quick, steep little leg-burner. The Echo Canyon parking area & trail are closed for improvements & parking expansion through Fall and Winter 2013. It's ok though, just take the Cholla trail that you can access via E Cholla Lane.

This is a great little trail for family hiking. I took my two oldest sons (3 & 5) on this trail and they really enjoyed it. It is relatively flat the whole way with plenty of washes to go in and out of. There were plenty of other people on the trail, hikers, bikers, horse etc...

We also took a short cut on Cat Peak Pass, this offered a great view of the superstition range.

I also trail ran this trail in about 30 minutes.

Ok, figured it out. Disregard my question. Confusion arose from googlemaps very wrong directions to Black Mountai Summit Park.

Tried to find this trail- all roads leading up the mountain are gated. Couldn't find trail head or parking area. Giving it five stars because I can't see down grading a trail I can't find. Please help us get there! Thanks.

The graffiti on the rocks spoiled an otherwise enjoyable ... didn't so much feel like a hike as an exploration.

Did this hike as well as a portion of the Bright Angel trail on a recent trip to the Grand Canyon. Both were great, but this hike had better and more interesting views. Some steeps drop offs on this one that made me slightly nervous, but definitely worth it. Also got to see some mules make their end of the day ascent.

Was able to do this hike on a recent trip to the Grand Canyon in late February--apparently a rare treat as it is usually icy that time of year. Great hike, definitely a bit tough on the knees. I would recommend trekking poles, especially for those that might be a tad afraid of heights.

Great way to start off a weekend morning. Probably arrived about 1/2 to an hour later than we should have; too many people after 10 am.
