Hidden Valley Trail via Mormon Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Perhaps the best in-town hike in Phoenix, Camelback Mountain offers a central location, a rigorous climb of 1,264 feet to its summit, rugged sandstone cliffs, a 360-degree panoramic view from the top, and the chance to see a perfect sunset. Whether you’re a resident or visitor, this hike is a must-do."
--Charles Liu, 60 Hikes within 60 Miles: Phoenix (Menasha Ridge Press).
Trail was easy to follow, even though I went in the middle of the week there were still people there but definitely not crowded. There are beautiful views to enjoy throughout.
I run and hike this trail all the time! It's a really nice view! Lots of people hike this, and it is very easy to navigate with nice, easy to find trail signs.
Starts out with a good hike up, but after that the elevation does not change much. Nice to see the inner part of South Mountain
Great trail. Beautiful. Difficult going up, but flat on the top. Great views. Very rocky, so wear your boots. If you bring your doggie, be careful as the trail is very rocky and their paws may be cut or burned, if very hot day.
The trail was clearly marked. The fat man's pass is pretty neat. Couldn't find any petroglyph's. The climb going in is pretty steep. The rest of the hike is really easy.
