Even if you’re not a hiker, this Valley of the Sun icon is a must-see landmark. Those who are in shape, though, should scale the popular Echo Canyon Summit Trail, which starts at the “camel’s head.” Be forewarned: It’s not an easy climb, but the citywide views and sculptural rock formations, like the 80-foot-tall Praying Monk, make the effort more than worthwhile.
