Beautiful!

Such a great place to visit! Make sure to head into the park to see the lava rock and appreciate the beautiful sights it has to offer!

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.

Locket Meadow is my favorite hike in Arizona. There are stretches where you are completely surrounding by Aspen as far as you can see. Just spectacular.

Beautiful mountain in a beautiful city. Take the lift to the top of snow bowl for a great view! There is a restaraunt with a patio at the ski lift area.

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.
