I can't give this hike a 5 because many people won't be able to make it. Be sure, before taking the challenge, that you have the lung capacity to continue to ascend at 12,000 feet. And start early so you're close to the return when...More

We heard about this hike while in Flagstaff with our two young children (10 and 7) and thought it would be fun to do part of the hike to experience the elevation (9,437 feet at our stopping point) and to give the kids bragging rights....More

To get to the highest point in Arizona one drives up to the Arizona Snow Bowl, and then take the ski lift ($) year-round up to near the top. Magnificent views. On many days one can look northwest INTO the upper part of Grand Canyon,...More

We stayed at a great house that had this beautiful mountain within view most of the time. Loved seeing it in the distance. We drove as far as you could up the mountain - can't say much about that experience. Might be best viewed from...More

Such a beautiful mountain when covered with snow. Elegant and distinctive available to see from many different directions. As someone from the Northeast originally, I miss mountains covered with snow. Humphrey's Peak satisfies my nostalgia .

I visited during winter so with snow being everywhere, it was a lovely atmosphere. The view all around is beautiful. Definitely worth the visit.

The best, toughest hike I've done. I don't hike too much, but I consider myself an outdoorsman. I made it with my 12 year old daughter, who is one tough cookie. I could count the number of people under 18 years old hiking the peak...More

I don't think the snow lifts operates in the summer. And I know the lifts don't go up to Mt. Humphrey. You might get thunderstorms in July so just check the weather before you go on a long hike. Hope this helps.
