Went up Bell Pass. Pictures. More commentary. It is a tough climb of approximately four miles with the last stretch being heavily vertical. I think it is a rougher climb than Camelback.


It is in the North Eastern mountain range which is kind of outside of the normal city hike range but since Phoenix has been sprawling north new trails have been put in the McDowells. This is one of the new ones. I was up there on my own on Sunday.

How far can you hike? i.e. how much water you can carry?

Amazing views. As pretty as southern Ontario can be, it's pretty flat here.

105F and 110F during midday. Not much relief from the heat, I went through nearly two litres in three hours.

You can actually see the city from there? That close?

Fuck.

On McDowell you can *just* see downtown but camelback and squaw peak hide it for the most part.
