Camelback Mountain
Camelback Mountain is an iconic mountain visible throughout most of the Phoenix metropolitan area. Towering over the city at 2,704 feet (824 meters) above sea level, the mountain was named after its very obvious resemblance to a resting camel. Features include unique sheer red sandstone cliffs and a variety of desert wildlife, including rock squirrels, gila monsters, javelinas, coyotes and grey foxes. These natural wonders make the mountain a very popular spot for hiking and rock climbing.

Although it is possible to hike to the top of Camelback, both trails are a strenuous undertaking and are only recommended for advanced hikers. Echo Canyon Recreation Area does, however, offer two easier options. Near the camel’s “head” is another popular rock formation known as The Praying Monk. Like Camelback, this formation is made of red sheer sandstone rock and named after its appearance, as the 100-foot-tall (30-meter-tall) formation vaguely resembles the image of a man kneeling in prayer. The Praying Monk is popular among rock climbers and maintains permanent anchor bolts for belay rope.
