Popular Camelback trail closed for work

A trail to the summit of Camelback Mountain is closed until next fall to provide time for renovations to the parking lot and reconstruction of parts of the popular hiking route.

Since there is only limited street parking at Camelback Mountain’s Cholla trailhead, Phoenix parks officials are encouraging hikers to explore the city’s other mountains.

The Arizona Republic reports that the Echo Canyon trail is used about 400,000 times a year.
