Get the blood pumping while you breath the piney mountain air
  1. Elden Lookout
    From the Peaks Ranger Station east of Flag, straight up Mount Elden; the Camelback of Flagstaff; about 3 hrs round trip; the top is kind of ugly, find a spot near the Sunset trail intersection if you're going to picnic
  2. Inner Basin
    Kind of a drive to the trailhead at Lockett Meadow, but it doesn't get any more beautiful; watch the altitude, it's up there
  3. Humphreys Trail
    4-5 hours straight up the tallest mountain in AZ; it's tough, the weather can change from sun to lightning to snow, but what a reward at the top!
  4. Weatherford Trail
    Another longer way up Humphreys Peak from the top of Schultz Pass; takes 5 hours round trip, views of Oak Creek, we'll have to try it!
  5. Oldham Trail
    From Buffalo Park, through boulder fields, to big views of Oak Creek and the Painted Desert. Takes 3-4 hours to the top and back
  6. Sunset Trail
    An easier way up Mount Elden's north side from Schultz Pass; just over a couple hours
  7. West Fork
    Drop into Oak Creek and head into a beautiful red rock canyon. Bring shoes you can get wet.
