Could not find anything to dislike about it! God's country. Drove up one highway and down the other with little side trips along the way.

It has many trails for both bikes and on foot. We love walking our dogs and letting them run around and explore in a safe environment. Very pretty scenery.

The Coconino Forest is HUGE, with the largest forest of Ponderosa Pines in the world. The views, hiking and photo opportunities are huge! I traveled here during fall colors and have never seen such beautiful scenery! Lockett Meadown, Hart Prairie, Mount Elden, Red Canyon, and many more memorable places to visit!!

There is a beautiful view all the way up to the top of the mountain. At the top, you can usually find Navajo Indians selling their works of art. Don't forget your camera.

Even in November the tress are showing off there colors. Nice and cool, best time for hiking! National Park center has so much information, excellent for the kids to learn without them realizing it :-)
