We visited so many areas of the forest. We wanted to make sure and experience as much of the desert and mountain attractions as we could. Very beautiful and breathtaking area.

This is a beautiful area, with the pine trees and the red colored mountains, WOW! We were there in spring and the Cottonwood trees were all green, but not everything was green yet. I bet it's more beautiful when everything has come back to life. AZ is not just a desert state, it's got such pretty landscapes.

These are the trees we come to see. These are the campsites we take refuge in from the summer heat. These are the trails we walk to find peace, to hear the birds, to look at something green, to restore ourselves. These are the trees and plants that clean our air and allow us to breath deeply. This is the... More

Hike, camp, hunt, 4X4, drive the scenic byways or watch for wildlife -- Coconino National Forest offers many fabulous recreational opportunities. Tall pines, red rocks or canyon views -- you'll love the varied topography.

White in the area, I could recommend a drive through to enjoy the local landscaping. There is snow and ice in January so timing for a visit is better scheduled months down the road.

Great trip for sight seeing thru the woods and nature. Interesting view of the pines with little underbrush.

My husband and I drove through Coconino National Forest starting in Sedona, crossing Flagstaff and going through all the way to the Grand Canyon. It makes a great trip in the winter but it must be just as beautiful any other time of the year. Taking the less traveled roads makes for gorgeous scenic views through the mountains north of... More

The scenic loop road is well worth the time, and you can add stops at Montezuma's Well and Castle to boot. The Oak Creek Canyon drive is also extremely nice.

Because this campsite is in the Coconino National Forest, it’s listed as an attraction in Flagstaff; however, Manzanita Campground is actually twenty-one miles south of Flagstaff, placing it 6 miles north of Sedona, just south of Slide Rock State Park. The campground is located right next to Oak Creek. It doesn’t bother me or my children at all, but you... More
