You can see the Peaks from just about anywhere in Flagstaff. Beautiful all the time but simply stunning at sunset and in the winter. Enjoy the view!

I always wonder if people who live with views like can be seen of the San Francisco Peaks appreciate it as much as we travelers do. It's wonderful to see after living most of my life surrounded by corn fields!

If you want to hike the highest peak in AZ then just do it! This hike is amazing and some crazy views! Takes about 6-7 hours up and down but definitely worth it. You can make it longer but we like to get up and get down. This is what Flagstaff is all about!

The parking lot at the beginning of the chairlift is the way to the wonderful path that winds around the mountain. You will wander through high mountain meadows, landscaped by nature with numerous ecosystems loaded with wildflowers, ferns, and old-growth aspens and pines that love to be hugged. Please be aware that here and there, if you eave the path,... More

These peaks have always fascinated me since I was a kid in Ohio. I could not comprehend how snow could be in Arizona. The gorgeous peaks and the vistas they give really offer a wonderful way to enjoy the natural beauty of Arizona. We were fortunate to see a sunset and will never forget its majestic splendor. In northern Arizona,... More

Virtually everywhere you go or look around Flagstaff and north to the Grand Canyon you are viewing and traveling along the San Francisco Peaks (highest in Arizona)! Whether to the east,west or north of Flagstaff the peaks are there. One cannot help but love this beautiful vista with it's snow capped Humphrey's Peak (highest point) while in northern Arizona! Enjoy!

My family and I took a drive up to Snowball Road before sunset. The temperature dropped 30 degrees by the time we reached the lower parking lot. This was as far as we could go as the road leading up to the resort was closed after 4pm. You want to make sure you are out on time as we watched... More
