Well… I've never seen so many people hiking in sneakers in my life than I did on the Cholla Trail heading up Camelback Mountain!
I was in low top boots — I can't imagine doing this in sneakers with all of the rocks. I know I appreciated the extra grip that my shoes provided.
Another interesting observation on this trail: I also saw two ladies hiking with purses. Wow!
Being right in the middle of Phoenix, this trail is CROWDED. It's definitely not my preferred atmosphere: I prefer the solitude of nature and to feel like I'm somewhere else. I don't like the cat and mouse game of hiking with so many other people. I also don't love seeing just the urban sprawl.
Happy I did this trail, but it's not not one I'd rush back to.
(Note: I parked on 64th about a mile from the trailhead)
