Arguably the Southwest's premier city, Phoenix offers its 1.4 million residents a mind-boggling array of hiking destinations. All roughly within an hour's drive of the Valley of the Sun, the trails highlighted in 60 Hikes within 60 Miles: Phoenix begin right inside the city limits with the likes of popular Camelback Mountain. From Hidden Valley to the south to the Superstition Wilderness to the north, author Charles Liu leads hikers and walkers along a superb collection of diverse trails. Whether novice hikers or seasoned trekkers, this guide is an indispensable tool.

Charles Liu immigrated to the United States from China in 1980. Spending his formative years attending Arizona State University, he grew increasingly fond of the Grand Canyon State's diverse outdoor offerings. Hiking quickly became his passion. Now a software engineer by trade, Charles spends much of his spare time exploring mountains, leading hiking trips, photographing and writing about trails around Arizona and throughout the Southwest.
The 2,704-foot summit of Camelback Mountain is one of my favorite places in Phoenix. From this centrally located vista point, you can see for miles in all directions. As your lungs recover from the climb, take a moment to explore the wide summit. Beautifully landscaped resorts, golf courses, and mansions dot the base of Camelback. A ring of mountains surrounds the sprawling metropolis of the 5th largest city in the U.S. If you are not afraid of heights, go to the northeast side of the summit and peer over the sheer cliff there. You might find some brave souls rappelling down or parasailing off the cliff. If you are lucky, a beautiful desert sunset will reward your travails, and there's no better place in Phoenix to watch it than from right here.
