Inspiring thousands of Phoenix residents and visitors to take up a hiking challenge, Camelback Mountain stands as a prominent 2700 foot landmark near the center of the metro area. Despite early attempts to preserve the mountain land for public use, today the Camelback Mountain area is a mix of homes, resorts, and golf courses. The area was briefly folded into the Pima and Maricopa Indian Reservation, but was quickly withdrawn to protect the area’s 5000 residents. With its lure of sunshine and fair weather, the Phoenix metropolitan area has grown into the fifth largest city in the United States.
