CHOLLA TRAIL ON CAMELBACK MOUNTAIN
This 1.5 mile trail (one way) is deemed as a moderate difficulty hike with an elevation gain of 1,200 feet. The trail heads up a well-maintained trail on Camelback's east flank, but becomes a challenging and technical ascent upon reaching the ridge-line.
This 9 mile loop will take you through residential neighborhoods and give you picturesque views of the desert and surrounding mountains.
