We went up to the Snowbowl outside of Flagstaff and hiked on the Kachina Trail. Also did some of the hiking trail up Mt Humpreys. Due to rain, the hikes were cut short. Found lots of delicious edible lobster mushrooms.

All the way up to the peaks or in the valley around Flagstaff there are ample trails from very easy to challenging. Thru piñon pines or ponderosas, it's all beautiful.

The forest roads have camping areas that are considered dry camping (no water restrooms etc) but beautiful and can stay for 14 days with fire pits and fantastic views of mountains elk and trees.

We drove through this from the Grand Canyon down to Sedona. Beautifully wooded with lots of dirt roads leading from the main road. Our two highlights were the Lava River Cave....if you want to do this you will need to look it up on the map ahead of time. It is not marked from the main road (at least not... More

We are Traveling on a Harley and it was a beautiful ride with plenty to see. The roads were in better condition than some of the major highways we have been on. Larger than we expected. A great day ride for anyone.

This forest covers a large area. We drove it from Sedona towards the Flagstaff and north to the Grand Canyon. The scenery is very pretty in many places. Come off the US17 as there are many secondary highways to travel through the forest for slower paced travel. Remote in places but worth the time to slow down and view the... More

Beautiful. I wish I would have booked a day or two here. It was so serene and scenic. However since I was just driving through I just took my time and enjoyed the view.

A simply terrific area for hiking, exploring, riding ... There's no dearth of trails to explore, and you can choose between more challenging trails with elevation changes, or more level areas. It's also easy to find a parking space. The view to the San Francisco Mountains - if you're not too deeply in the trees - is terrific. A truly... More
