“Magnificent forest”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

The extent of this forest is truly breathtaking and the virtually unbroken stand of trees (mainly it seems, Ponderosa Pines) which covers hundreds of square kilometres, shows nature, preserved, valued and appreciated, at her very best. Also, the parks and wildlife people we encountered were uniformly friendly, knew their stuff and were very helpful and accommodating. The forest is absolute wilderness and although there are bear, cougar and deer around, which probably require certain cautions and common sense, we saw only deer. There are many places where one can stop and picnic and enjoy what is a pristine wilderness area, remarkable for the blanket of trees which stretch to the horizon in every direction. We loved it and it contributes much character to the extraordinary landscapes of northern Arizona.

“Beautiful views and breathtaking scenery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012 via mobile

Beautiful views and breathtaking scenery driving through the national forest from Flagstaff to Sedona. We stopped several times to get out and look at amazing scenery and stopped at a picnic area too. We will definitely come back next summer to camp.

We enjoyed all the stops we made throughout the park. All of the rangers and others encountered were helpful and knowledgable. We can't wait to go back!

“Scenic road coming from Grand Canyon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

The snow covers the San Francisco Peaks and the Aspen was gold colored during our drive back from the Grand Canyon. Simply beautiful! Saw deer and other wildlife on this road thru the Coconino National Forest.
