This is a beautiful park on the southern edge of Phoenix. It was a few overlooks with amazing views of the City of Phoenix and surrounding cities. The view is incredible whether daytime or nighttime and it's an amazing place to catch a sunset. There are plenty of trails for hikers and horseback hiders. And plenty of cacti to have your picture taken next to. I thoroughly enjoyed this diversion during a business trip.

Loved this park. Plenty of free parking and tons to explore. This was the first hike we did since moving to AZ a month ago. We at the end of the lot for the zoo and did a ton of walking. Checked out Hole in the Rock, which had a nice view. Pretty easy to get to the top. I'd like to come back and explore more.

This is the main trail up Camelback Mountain. It is a great hike. I highly suggest going up this trail, then down the Cholla trail on the other side, and take an Uber back to your car in the Echo Canyon parking area.
