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.

South Mountain Trails (Desert Classic Trail)
by

1 Completed 1 Reviews

Excellent trail for any fitness level. I take the Desert Classic Trail to the Mormon Loop Trail and it's always great to start on a no elevation trail, hike the Mormon Loop Trail, and finish on the Desert Classic trail back to the parking lot. I've taken my dog on the Desert Classic Trail as well. It does get crowded on the weekends so I tend to hike on my off Fridays from work. The Desert Classic Trail is shared by mountain bikers, dog walkers, and hikers who are moving on to other trails in South Mountain Park. There is not a lot of elevation gain from the parking lot to the National Trail or the Mormon Loop trail and I'm not sure about the trail after that since I don't hike past the National Trail or the Mormon Loop Trail.

There are some technical parts to this trail for the more advanced. This was our first time on this trail and we had a blast. There are some really nice single track trails that are pretty smooth for beginners to intermediate riders. We are visiting from O'Side Ca and will definitely be back to tackle this again!
