Flagstaff, Arizona Hiking.

Named one of the "Top Seven Trail Towns in America," by Trailrunner Magazine, Flagstaff is a hiking nirvana and one of the top hiking destinations in the world. Towering above the Volcanic Highlands at 12,643 feet into the blue Arizona sky, San Francisco Peaks offer challenging trails to three summits that ring this dormant volcano. Located only 14 miles from downtown Flagstaff, the trailhead for Humphreys Summit, the highest peak in Arizona, offers amazing hiking challenges and spectacular panoramic views that stretch to the Grand Canyon. The 817-mile Arizona National Scenic Trail - from Mexico to Utah - is a short drive from downtown.

On the edge of Flagstaff, Coconino National Forest offers miles of scenic hiking and backpacking trails through its four environments - Peaks District (high-country mountain forests and meadows); Mormon Lake District (wide-open spaces dotted with lakes); Mogollon Rim District (lush forests on the edge of the Mogollon Rim) and Red Rock District (red-rock canyons and Oak Creek). The fabled red rock trails, aspen-lined paths and scenic overlooks of Sedona are 30 minutes south of Flagstaff and the Grand Canyon trails are 80 miles from our hotel. For leisurely hikes in town, Flagstaff has a 33-mile urban trail system.

For back-country and alpine hiking, head to the 18,960 acre Kachina Peaks Wilderness - a hiking adventure in the upper reaches of the San Francisco Peaks including Humphreys Peak, Arizona's highest point at 12,643 feet. Sacred to hikers and the Hopi people, this northern Arizona landscape offers challenging trails through the forest and meadows of the mountain’s lower slopes and some that lead to the peaks of the mountain's inner basin, a huge caldera formed during the mountain's most recent volcanic cataclysm. Mountain scenery and views from these trails are worth the journey! [Top]
