We took our 5 and 6 year old grandchildren up to the top with the chairlift. They were enthralled with the ride both ways. The views at the top are spectacular! We ate lunch after at the bottom and the food was fine.

Super morning out. We beat the crowds and enjoyed a fantastic chairlift ride up to 11,500 feet high with magnificent views over the surrounding areas.

I first saw the San Francisco peaks as a child on the mandatory western trip that everyone seemed to go on with their children in those days. Jutting out of the high plain, all alone, they immediately took up a huge space in my imagination. What were they? How did they come to be? Was there some Native American god... More

You could almost see the peaks from anywhere in a 100 plus mile area surrounding them. Most of the land around the peaks is pretty flat so it really highlights them. They make for some pretty pictures.

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.
