HIKING

Trailhead hours: Sunrise to sunset

Both Echo Canyon Trail and Cholla Trail are rated extremely difficult, challenging hikers with exposed rock, strenuous climbs and sections of hand-over-hand climbing. Dogs are prohibited at all Echo Canyon and Cholla Trail areas.

Echo Canyon Trail

A hiker ascends Echo Canyon trail on Camelback Mountain in Phoenix, AZ

Distance: 1.2 miles out-and-back

Trailhead: 4925 E McDonald Dr, Phoenix. This trailhead has restrooms, benches and water. The parking lot is busy and will typically remain full from early morning throughout the day on weekends

What to expect: This steep and rocky ascent requires assistance of handrails and climbing to reach the top, but the 360-degree views from the summit are worth it.

Cholla Trail

Hikers descend the Cholla Trail on Camelback Mountain in Phoenix, AZ

Distance: 1.5 miles out-and-back

Trailhead: 6131 E Cholla Ln, Paradise Valley. This trailhead does not have facilities or designated parking.

What to expect: Cholla Trail is a slightly longer and steadier climb than Echo Canyon, but that doesn’t mean it’s not tricky. Lower portions are easier to follow, but the last third of the climb is a challenging scramble over large boulders.
