    If you are all looking for a good workout while hiking? Camelback mountain is a good hiking spot. Good workout and beautiful view on top. icon_smile.gif who all hikes it? I go every day in the evening. Don't be a stranger and say hi. I hike the backside called "Echo Canyon"

    I always wanted to hike Camelback Mountain when I was AZ. I really enjoy hiking Tumamoc Hill in Tucson. icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif

    Haven't hiked it yet, but I can attest to the view being beautiful from up there. icon_wink.gif

    I still prefer the beach. Mountains are pretty, and fun to climb (or cycle). But they're dusty and either too cold or too hot. The beach is always just right, and if it's not, hop in the water.

    This is why we live here. There is a certain tranquility one finds living in the desert that I have never felt anywhere else. As for hiking Camelback Mountain, it's one of my favorite past-times here, and great exercise, but I won't do it in the summer in this heat -- just not fun.

    You know, if you're from Arizona you're not allowed to use "Curious" in your profile name. You're going to confuse people.

    I love mountains, with trees and rivers myself. Definitely need something colder, with more seasons. icon_wink.gif

    I like the seasons in South FL.

    Kinda summer (winter)
    Summer (spring)
    Thunderstorms and hurricanes (summer)
    Still summer (fall)

    It's certainly the most popular and the most challenging
    But I like Squaw Peak, South Mountain, North Mountain and I wanna go up McDowell Mts too

    Thanks for posting this piece about Camelback Mountain. I lived near there for 11 years and hiked it countless times (both Invergordon and Echo). Also Squaw Peak and Pinnacle Peak. I used to go alone, or with a buddy or two - - - or sometimes with someone special. (This hike helped me sort of weed out guys who weren't into fitness. If they wouldn't climb with me, we didn't last too long!) I'm homesick now after viewing the pics and dreaming of AZ! I long to go back some day.

    I always wanted to hike it, but never get to it.
    It will be on my list for my next visit.
    I have to drive 5 hours down from up north.
    Thanks for sharing.

    SxyDrkHair saidI was born and raised here in Arizona. So I have been on Camelback mountain so many time... :-)

    You should check out the South Mountain Park.
    No new pics? Post fail* icon_sad.gificon_sad.gificon_sad.gif

    I've been meaning to conquer Echo Canyon. Just haven't gotten around to it. Hopefully soon.

    Yikes in the middle of summer? I'll probably be floating in the nearby pool at a resort probably.

    here comes the debbie downer...

    I've hiked it and it was a challenge but nothing I want to do ever again, especially in the summer. It's too damn hot outside. In my opinion, the only good that has come out of this state for me is dance. I'm not a hiker you could say.

    Only in northern AZ is where I've seen anything near a winter season. In the phoenix area you can get away with a light jacket and pants during the "winter" time.

    ok see that's when it would doable. at that point there poses another problem for me. You can't see well climbing at night and there are more animals out when it gets cooler. It's just a lose for me. haha
