Nice, scenic hike

We enjoyed this easy but very scenic hike. Best to go early in the day during summer months to avoid heat & sun although there is a fair amount of shade.

So this trail is not that long but if you need some relaxing or alone time then this is your place. The volcanic rocks are amazing and beyond the ladder is where the fun begins. I loved this place and I would go there again.

After following the easy trail to the base of the volcano and climbing over a ridge you find yourself inside the wall of the volcano, eroded out to form orange and yellow hoodoos. It's not only fun to look at you can explore between the hoodoos and get several rows back into interesting niches.

I'm assuming this is the Red Mountain along Rt. 89 between Flagstaff and Valle, AZ. It's been years since we've been there but reliving it through pictures from the past brings it all back. A former coworker and friend first mentioned this place to me in 1980 while my future wife and I were living at the Grand Canyon. The... More

My boys had a blast! I easily hiked this with the baby in my Tula. The closer you get to the base the scenery changes and it's beautiful! There is a little ladder so heads up to those that can't climb. Bring water and heads up there is no bathroom along the trails.....We did this hike in the later part... More

It is a smaller park with great views, a moderate trail to walk. Lots of Indian vendors to buy jewelry or souvenirs. It is not a major canyon, but interesting.

Along the drive back I had sent a message to our friends that we were going to stop for a short hike at the Red Mountain. So we arrived at the Red Mountain Trail head around 3pm and the... More

A little more "off the beaten path" though it is right on Hwy 180 heading toward Grand Canyon. This is a easy to moderate hike with a unique amphitheater of hoodoors and cliffs at the end. There is even a small slot canyon to explore. Good for the whole family.

This an easy one mile hike that takes you to some very unique hoodoos. It reminded us of Bryce National Park in Utah. Don't miss this one.
