We wanted an easy hike near Flagstaff with the famed views and trees of the area. Sandys Canyon Trail fit the bill! The wonderful scent of Ponderosa pines accompanies your jaunt into a beautiful canyon. About a mile, first around the rim of the canyon and then down into the canyon, you listen to the wind whistle through the trees... More

I always love going out to the woods. There are so many different things to do out there! My hubby works for the FS on this forest, so he's always finding new places for us to go see. Get out and explore!

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.

This is a large National Forest. Get a map, it is easy to get lost. It is basically all Pine Forest. The forest service is cutting back on the number of roads they maintain because of envirormentalist objections, budget cuts, and lack of staff. Stop at the visitor center in Flagstaff or the USFS Headquarters for the latest information. The... More

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.
