These snow capped peaks are a volcanic mountain range in Coconino National Forest and can been seen everywhere in Flag. They have both skiing and hiking there, and they were named after St Francis of Assi. It's Flag's finest !!!

We hike here every few years as we live in Flagstaff. The hike begins with a bang--an uphill one! But eventually levels out a bit as it winds gently through the largest most mature aspen grove I've ever seen. Unfortunately we found out yesterday that the spring water faucet at the pump house (about mile 1.7) was broken off and... More

Moderate hike starting around 8500 ft and getting to 10400 ft, resulting in nice temps. Still snow at top and recent avalanche(downed trees) covers Abineau trail making it difficult to find. 7 mi round trip

We stayed at a resort that looked out upon these mountains and we really enjoyed our views. I'm not sure if there are any hikes or other thinks to do on the mountains besides looking at them.

These snow capped peaks may surprise some who don't know much about Arizona. There is a ski area on the west side. There is hiking in them. They can be seen for miles from US 89 to the interstate and other locations.

You can see these peaks from places all around Flagstaff and they are beautiful. We saw them with snow on the tops and they were awesome.

What a magnificent sight we received as we drove into Flagstaff! The snow topped mountains were real treat for us as it doesn't snow where we live. There are many great spots to take photos from either on the way into Flagstaff or on the route to the Grand Canyon. After speaking with locals we discovered that it is unusual... More

Travel through the area and enjoy the varied landscape and the still snow-covered peaks. Birdlife is good too.
