Camelback Mountain is so named because of its shape that resembles the hump and head of a kneeling camel. It is located in the Camelback Mountain Echo Canyon Recreational Area – between the town of Paradise Valley and the Phoenix neighborhood of Arcadia.
Camelback Mountain provides a panoramic view from its top. It is among the most popular urban hiking spots in Phoenix. Hikers gain about 1,200 feet in elevation to the summit overlooking the Phoenix Mountains Preserve and the city. This is a popular local attraction with outdoor enthusiasts.
