Red-rock Camelback Mountain, an area landmark, rises 2,704 feet above sea level. On one trip, my teenage daughter and I hiked to the top, an arduous journey, especially along the narrow ledge barely wide enough for one foot. However, once we reached the top, and especially after we came back down, we gained a sense of accomplishment. With grade schoolers, try the easier Ramada Loop, a 1/8-mile trail that gains about 100 feet in elevation. Remember to wear a hat, put on sunblock and bring along plenty of water.
