Scottsdale: Camelback Mountain Private Hiking Tour

2. Scottsdale: Camelback Mountain Private Hiking Tour

Hike the iconic Camelback Mountain with a knowledgeable guide on this private tour. Challenge yourself with trails ascending 1,420 feet to a summit resembling the hump of a camel's back. Be rewarded with 360-degree views of the surrounding city. This is a very tough hike and is not for beginner hikers, those who are not in good hiking shape, or young children. Part of the Phoenix Mountains Preserve, Camelback gets its name from its two rock formations that resemble the head and back of a kneeling camel. This hike takes 2.5 to 3 hours to get to the summit and return to the parking lot. The views are breathtaking and serve as a great opportunity for a photo op. Choose either to get picked up from your location in the Phoenix or Scottsdale area, or meet your guide at the trailhead. The transportation option is available for groups of 6 or more.

What people are saying about Camelback Mountain, Phoenix

Phoenix Hot Air Balloon Ride is a great company, Always a prompt and courteous reply to questions, no matter how many you may have. Hotel Pick-Up was on time and Mike our driver was helpful, courteous and professional. On our ride to the location where the balloon takes off he filled us in on local history, events and many other items about the area we were traveling through. Mike would also make a great tour guide. Our pilot was Michael a many year veteran of piloting balloons. Unfortunately we did not get to experience the ride itself. Michael tried desperately to find the right location to launch but due to wind conditions he was not taking the chance. He was more than apologetic and was just as disappointed as the group that was to be on the ride (12 in total). Michael's saying is "Better to be safe on the ground than Sorry in the air! Thank you Michael, we truly appreciate your efforts. We would highly recommend Phoenix Hot Air Balloon Ride. Hope to try again!

My husband and I went for my birthday, both first timers. It was fantastic!! The guide was very experienced and we felt very safe. The staff was also amazing, the went out of their way and made me feel very special with a birthdate cake after breakfast. Would definitely recommend.

This whole experience was terrific! The captain as well as the other riders were the best. I’d definitely recommend this if you’ve never been on a hot air balloon ride before. Can’t go wrong with morning champagne!

We had a great team guiding us, would recommend. One thing to note is that you really need a hat for after you land since the sun is strong and you'll be there while having breakfast.

Had an amazing experience! Captain John shared some fantastic tales with us, making it a memorable experience
