This is a difficult out and back trail to Camelback Mountain in Echo Canyon Recreation Area. Gloves are useful to protect hands when having to scamper on all 4s. Bring 2L of water per person and salty snacks for cooler weather, bring more for warmer weather.

This trail goes by The Praying Monk, Echo Canyon Viewpoint, and Camelback.

Getting Started

Parking can be a huge challenge on this hike especially when the weather is nice. Using a ridesharing app such as Uber or Lyft can be helpful when parking is challenging. Be sure to bring plenty of water. If you are not a regular hiker and it is summer time please avoid this hike.

    This was a beautiful hike. There is a pretty steep incline that’s hard to climb up if you don’t have the right footing or utilize the rails. The view is beautiful. It’s difficult to a degree, but not impossible.

    This is NOT AN EASY HIKE! The trail requires a lot of scrambling over big rocks and a lot of vertical gain, but the views are unbeatable!

    This is an amazing hike! It is not an easy hike by any means. It is steep, rocky, and rewarding. If you can help it get a ride to the trailhead and save yourself the trouble of trying to find a place to park. This starts off moderate but becomes quite technical with steep climbs and some scrambling. After the steep railing section the trail gets less intense and then begins to get much steeper as you make your way to the top. Slow and steady win this race for me and I took lots of breaks. Depending on season bring 1-2L of water per person. Your body will thank you as you make your way up. The top has amazing 360° views of the entire valley area. Be sure to sit and enjoy for a while before heading back down. On my way down I found myself using my hands and feet a lot as I navigated back down the steep terrain. It’s not bad just take your time and be sure of footing. This hike is very populated and filled with people encouraging all to keep going to the top. This was a great hike, an awesome experience, and a wonderful workout for the morning.
