Beautiful, nice and easy hike, good for all ages!

This is a great hike that has amazing views at all times of the year. This trail might be closed for skiing season, but I am not sure.

I went in October, just before Halloween and the weather was perfect. The leaves were changing and there was a nice brisk breeze. The short loop makes it accessible for all ages and dogs! 

After driving about 7 miles up to the top of Humphrey's Peak, you are rewarded with an amazing view of Flagstaff and a good amount of trails.

Aspen Nature Loop is cool too because at one point you intersect with The Arizona Trail. If you have not heard of it, it is an 800 miles trail from the border of UT and AZ, all the way to the border of AZ and Mexico.

Fun and easy hike, check it out!

Always practice Leave No Trace ethics on your adventures and follow local regulations.

Perfect little hike

I love this hike/walk. It's easy, not hard, and anyone can do it. Love to take my dog out with me and enjoy the views.
