The hike up to the highest point in Arizona was beautiful. It was not an easy hike, but I observed lots of younger people hiking to the top, as well as out of shape older people. This was one of my favorite State HPs.

Can be scene in and around Flagstaff. At an elevation of 12,637, the peak provides interesting photos. With storms and cooler weather approaching, it is hidden in the clouds.

I hiked up here a few years ago and greatly enjoyed the hike. It's beautiful views from the summit, and the trail is relatively simple to follow. I'm casually going after the highest points in all 50 states, and not only are the hikes usually very beautiful and enjoyable, but exploring the areas is a huge part of the trip... More

Great hike to the peak. First time experiencing altitude above 10k. Kicked out tail. We had weather all the way up. Never able to see the peak. Be prepared prior to hike for any weather. Would like to go up when there isn't any weather.

I had a hip replacement exactly 7 months to the day of my 57th birthday hike to the top of Mount Humphreys! I live at 6,000 feet and hike several miles weekly in the forehst that surrounds my home so I felt prepared for the adventure. It is rigorous with the elevation gain of about 3,300 feet to the very... More

Humphrey's Peak near Flagstaff, Arizona is a great place to visit. I climbed all the way to the top from the trailhead located at the Arizona Snowbowl Ski area parking lot. Total elevation gain is about 3,000 feet and the in-and-out distance is just shy of 10 miles. It had snowed the day before my climb in early October 2015.... More

Great views! Nice and easy trail. Just make sure to go when the weather is good. Monsoons can easily sneak up on you. Take plenty of water.

Great place to hike. Be careful you can get a sunburn on a cool over cast day. Snow Bowl is not open during the week.

For a 50-year-old Midwest flatlander, this was one of my toughest and most rewarding hikes. Climbing up paths that had ice cover in places was tough enough, but passing the tree line and dealing with reduced oxygen levels and steep climbing at the same time made for a long day, with frequent stops to catch my breath and get my...
