Camelback Mountain rises 1400 feet above the Phoenix valley to 2704 feet above sea level. The mountain is a 75.8 acre city park with trails starting from east and west. Both hikes are moderately difficult and may take about an hour or more for an average hiker to reach the top. Parking is at times difficult since the trails are popular. Be sure to take water, sunblock, and a hat. There is abundant wildlife on Camelback, as these photos show.
