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.

Riparian Preserve at Water Ranch

A super place to walk, when you need a break from the hills. There are several different loops you can try, depending on time you want to spend. Since it is fairly flat, it is suitable for all ages, I went early 7 AM and counted 70 bunnies, as well as numerous ducks, geese, herons, and assorted other types I couldn't name. Look for turtles on the logs by the floating bridge.

A lot of migratory birds currently there, including several White Pelicans. Not strenuous at all, but it's a nice place to walk when time is an issue.

I don't think I would call this a hike exactly since a lot of it is paved. But it is a beautiful park with a ton of wildlife. Will definitely be back, and bringing my dog next time!

This is a beautiful and well-maintained urban riparian preserve. We saw several species of birds and waterfowl on our walk around the ponds. The trails are well-maintained, and some are paved. It's a great spot for bird-watching, walking your dog, running, and fishing.
