Yes, this is a run/hike as it’s hard to run the full loop depending on the crowds and this is a great one. Scenic views at the top and challenging climb. Try to go during the week to beat the crowds, do not recommend weekends....More

Great workout. Hard climb. Views of the valley are beautifully on a clear day. Go during the week, parking is impossible on weekends. Bring extra water, it is not an easy hike.

This was an enjoyable experience, but man was it TOUGH, especially for someone who doesn’t hike often. I’m 26 and in shape and this was a challenge for me, but enjoyable. We went early and beat the mid-day heat. Take plenty of water and wear...More

Camelback Mountain is a beautiful green mountain range that we enjoyed viewing. We did not hike it..but the views of the horizon were stunning.

For our tastes, there were some clear pros and cons to this hike. Pros: unique, cool hike with amazing views! It’s worth doing once. Cons: wow, what a pain to park... it’s not fun to walk a paved/main road just to get to the hike....More

Plan ahead for parking somewhere. Long walk to trailhead. But worth the climb for the city mountain vista !

To hot on this visit to hike! Caught the view...homes around it are large and gorgeous! Looks like a great place to hike and not to challenging

Hard work but a cool hike. It's a scramble for much of the way. There are rails to hang onto in some of the tougher spots. It took my wife and I 2 hours and 40 minutes round trip. There are cool views of Scottsdale...More
