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

Plenty of Forest Roads to explore. Some are closed right now because of the fire danger, but many are there for the seeing. Lots of wildlife including antelope and elk with some mule deer. Roads are a little rough so take it easy in a car.

I wish the freak snow storm had not rolled in so we could have had more time here. Amazingly beautiful and lots to explore.

Beautiful country to travel through. We stayed in Flagstaff & wanted to visit Sedona but highway 89 was closed due to the recent fire. Took 17 detour only a few miles longer to Sedona & enjoyed the travel through the pines.

Coconino National Forest has hundreds of trails. One we found was 20 miles north of downtown Flagstaff on Route 180 going towards Grand Canyon on the west side of the road. There is a large parking area and restrooms. The trail is an easy mile and a half flat trail--the first part is paved with macadam (making it handicapped accessible)... More

I was at the 2014 Overland Expo at Mormon Lake and was riding an adventure bike. We rode a lot of trails and went to the south rim. We also explored the San Francisco peaks. The sights were amazing and I am in awe of the Grand Canyon no matter how many times you visit. The only slight was at... More

Anytime I pass through Flagstaff on a business trip, I make a point of setting aside time for at least a brief hike in the Coconino National Forest. The trails, towering pine trees (Jefferies, I think, fill the air with the aroma of vanilla) and dramatically sculpted hills never fail to inspire, no matter the time of year! I look... More
