Summer hikes, fall color with the aspens, and winter skiing -a true outdoor playground. We love the Kachina trail and Aspen Corner in particular.

Went accessed trailheads via the Snow Bowl. There are plenty of options from easy to strenuous. Parking was easy and trailheads not hard to find. The views are magnificent. We met lots of locals and visitors on the hike and all were friendly and helpful.

Stayed in Flagstaff and looked out to the San Fransisco Peaks and the sunsets were amazing. During monsoon season we watched the t-storms come thru the mountains almost on a daily basis.

Beautiful sight from every angle. Ultimately the largest landmark in the Flagstaff area, always useful in maintaining your location reference point when traveling in the area. Surprised to learn that the area between the peaks is a volcano caldera.

Beautiful! We don't hike so we did not take them in that way. However, you don't have to hike to enjoy it. The view is worth it!

Located next to the trail head for Humphreys Peak. This is an easy loop hike for everyone. The trail goes through a meadow with great views of the surrounding area. Makes you feel like a real hiker without the pain!

We took the best pictures near Sunset Crater National Park. The next best pictures were from Walnut Canyon National Monument.

Very unique setting, compared to everything around here ... Ponderosa Pines are magnificent and snowshoeing though that marvellous setting, with fresh pine and juniper scent, white snow and bright blue sky brings peace to the world
