This popular destination for hiking and rock climbing is is located in the backyard of Omni Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Montelucia. Many people who visit the area have an extreme interest in hiking the mountain. There are two hiking trails that lead to the peak of the mountain. The Echo Canyon Trail is 1.14 miles and the Cholla Trail is 1.4 miles—both considered to be challenging.
