Sanctuary Resort Celebrates Reopening of Neighboring Camelback Mountain’s Echo Canyon Summit Trail With Free Spa Treatments

“Race to the Top” Instagram Contest Kicks-Off Today for Arizona Hikers

Scottsdale, AZ (January 28, 2014) – Newly renovated Echo Canyon Summit Trail is once again guiding hikers up Camelback Mountain, the neighbor and namesake of Scottsdale, Arizona’s premier boutique resort, Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain. To commemorate the trail’s reopening, Sanctuary has introduced a “Race to the Top” Instagram photo contest. Complimentary massages at the world-renowned Sanctuary Spa will be awarded to hikers that capture the best snapshots from the mountain’s vantage point.

Those ready for the climb need merely post their best Instagram photo from the summit and tag the photo to sanctuaryaz_ with hashtag #sanctuaryrewards. Sanctuary will choose five winning photos and invite the photographers to enjoy their choice of 60-minute muscle-soothing Swedish, Therapeutic or Reflexology massage. The Instagram contest will run through February 28, with winners awarded throughout the contest period.

The sheer red sandstone cliffs of Camelback Mountain have long been a draw for outdoor enthusiasts in Arizona. Guided hikes can be arranged for Sanctuary guests, who are often found on the trail. In addition to glorious vistas, hikers can discover indigenous flora, fauna and small animals typical to the Sonoran Desert on their journey.

For reservations, please visit or call 855.887.7312.
