I've hiked this several times, but never considered "running" it.

If you keep a steady pace, walking up (the Echo Canyon trail) will take 35-40 minutes.

Many people run up and down in the mid-to-low 20 minute range, but they are part mountain goat.

Keep in mind that our local fire and police do multiple mountain rescues from this trail every year, so it's not your typical "running" trail, especially in Phoenix' summer heat.

The view from the top makes it worthwhile, especially at sunrise!!

Echo Canyon is a great cardio workout. I'm 55 years old and do it in just under 30 min. Talked to younger guys who've made it in 15 minutes, AMAZING!. Write in your times and age here if you've done it. Times are from start to peak.

I run/climb camelback (Echo Canyon side) about 3 to 5 times a week. I've found that my knees actually do better with this type of running as opposed to running on flat hard surfaces. I also love the strengthening aspect to the legs and have found a large carry over into cycling up hills/mountains. To the person first trying the hike I would also suggest a slow steady pace because those last two climbs at the end will get you working.
