Camelback Mountain is the defining landmark of Phoenix and the Valley of the Sun. This trail starts on the north side of the “camel’s head,” traverses below some towering cliffs, climbs to the saddle between the head and the “hump,” and then runs up the west ridge of the camel’s hump to the highest point on the mountain. Because this scenic trail is in the middle of the urban area, it is very popular, and the parking lot fills quickly on weekend mornings. Your best chance at a parking spot is to hike early on a weekday.
