Description:

Fun but strenuous hike. Make sure you're in decent shape, take a lot of water, and a cap, as there's very little shade. Parking was the biggest issue. Good tip would be to park at the paradise valley town hall and take the free trolley called Ollie the trolley. This trolley runs every hour and saves you so much havoc. Here the link for more info: http://www.sanctuaryoncamelback.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/2017-Resort-Trolley-Schedule.pdf   1. Kid-Friendly. Did I see children on this trail? Yes. Is this a trail all or most children under the age of 12 can do? No. Our little guy, who is 8, was so scared and teary at the first major ascend that Dad took one for the team and turned around. 2. Parking. It's really really popular. Even during off-season. Parking space is far from guaranteed, and if you are staying at a local resort, I encourage you to Uber/taxi. You can not park on the street anywhere near the trailhead. 3. Time. I was able to do the entire climb in about 1.5 hours and I'm in great shape. While some of that time was needed to navigate against so many other hikers and a couple of photo breaks, the majority of that time I was moving at a nice pace. The folks who do 30 min are awesome but not the majority.
