Enjoy the views!

My wife and I saw these peaks from all sides. They are absolutely awesome! You can see them from all over Northern Arizona and they look different from every viewpoint.

If you have the chance, tour though this area. While in other parts of the state, we were told several times that the mountains we were seeing in the distance were the San Francisco Peaks. Lucky for us, we did get to see them up close and personal, not only from 50 miles away. The entire area is lovely and... More

A must see. These peaks rise straight up 13,000 feet. They are spectacular. The skylift will show you views clear to the Grand Canyon. Be sure to take a coat and good shoes. In the winter, if you are not skiing, you are not permitted to be there.

We decided to annoy our sat nav & took the minor route to the Grand Canyon skirting around SF peaks park. Humphreys Peak is always in view, even from the Meteor Crater East of Flagstaff.

Even though we didnt go up any peaks, we went around and around them. Snow on top made for some great pictures no matter what angle you took them from. Must see!

We love the peaks, visit every time we make it to Flagstaff from the East Coast. Oct is beautiful with field and mountain sides all lite up with the yellow aspen. There is always a hike we'd like to do and of course one can take the lift up to the top. Remember you're above 12,000 ft when you hike... More

Visible from all over Flagstaff, these peaks lend a western feel to this upscale college town. Lots of hiking and mtn biking trails abound on these peaks.
