This is one of our favorite hikes in Flagstaff: It's easy to get to, with a trailhead right off of one of the Snowbowl parking lots (which means tons of parking, even when busy), and while the beginning of the trail seems messy, with downed...More

We frequently hike Flagstaff and enjoy many trails but this is far and away, one of our favorites. The elevation and views are unsurpassed. One of my favorite things about this trail is how much the scenery changes throughout. Vastly different flora, fauna and terrain...More
