I am a little reluctant to write this review because my husband and I hike up there on weekends and we basically have the place to ourselves. We hike the cross country ski trails. They are well marked but Denise in the office also has maps. They rent yerts which families seem to enjoy. Also lots of weddings. They set... More

My girlfriends and I camp quite a bit with our families but we were looking for a camping experience without having to lug our tents along. This fit the bill perfectly. The cabins are just that, a small log cabin with a full bed and a bunk bed, a table with chairs and a wood stove. The setting is lovely... More

We booked a stay in the yurts months in advance, and were surprised that there was no snow. Oh well, great hiking, and we rented snow bikes from the nordic center--WHAT A HOOT! Now shopping for a fat-bike. We rode the bikes to the top yurt, then climbed the hill behind the yurt: it gives a beautiful 360ish view. A... More

We stayed a couple of nights here when we went to the Grand Canyon. We planned on staying in a Yurt, but felt it was too small for 2 people and 2 dogs. It would have been fine as a place to sleep, but was a little too cozy to spend much time. The guy in the visitor center was... More

There are only a few yurts and cabins there, so its never crowded. Great hiking and mountain biking trails. Only 10mins from Flagstaff and 1 hour to Grand Canyon. Very clean, quiet and a unique experience. Most the workers there were very nice and welcoming, but a few of them had the granola elitist attitude we could have done without...

How could you not love the Flagstaff Nordic Center? Groomed trails, prices reasonable, nice people there. Ski or snow shoe. This is a great part of our Flagstaff community. And it's never been crowded when I've been there, even on weekends.

Felt the visitors center could be friendlier, updated and provide some maps for walking trails. Did not seem to care if we stayed or went on our way. We walked a short way and did not venture further.

I had not been cross country skiing since I was in highschool but now that I live in Flagstaff I have been wanting to try it. The Flagstaff Nordic Center was a non-intimidating place to get back on skis for the first time as an adult. The trails are well marked and acurately labeled by difficulty. Beautiful setting too.

Snowshoeing or cross-country skiiing are their winter sports. The property is GORGEOUS, rolling acres of ponderosa pine, fir and aspen groves. Even on a busy weekend, there will be times when you can't see or hear another soul and feel as though you have the entire place to yourself. They have cabins and yurts for rent, each with a little... More

Beautifully groomed and marked trails. The fresh snow and cold weather helped them stay nice. Trail pass and rental are pricey compared to other places in the country we have been, especially considering all of the free places you could ski near by. However, if you want a groomed trail and need rental equipment this is definitely the place to... More
