No dogs allowed on Camelback Mountain.
If your four-legged friend normally joins you on a hike up Cholla Trail, it’s time to say goodbye. Dogs are no longer allowed on Camelback Mountain in Phoenix.
The decision was made through citizen votes in recent surveys. There have been complaints regarding dog safety, and many concerns have been raised from recent high temperatures. Another factor… dog waste that was being left behind on trails! Eeek! Hikers were not pleased by what some dogs were leaving behind. If you are spotted on the trail with your dog, you could be fined and face other consequences.
