Trail Run in Lockett Meadow
Arizona › Lockett Meadow
Added by Moe Lauchert
Lockett Meadow offers plenty of solitude and a great opportunity for altitude training. The trails are well established and marked, and is located close to a campground.
North of Flagstaff on the 89A, take a left turn directly after a sign for Sunset Crater. This road winds up a well-developed path; when it ends, turn right. After the road banks left, take a right at the next fork and continue on the dirt road up a single lane path until you enter the Lockett Meadow campground. Be sure to drive carefully and slowly, as other vehicles will be leaving Lockett Meadow on the same one-lane road. Park in the free day-use area and get ready to run!
Walk through the campground and look for the Inner Basin Trailhead. The trail is well marked and well kept but the roots are allowed to grow and the rocks in the beginning of the path create constant obstacles. After about a mile, the trail smooths out. The Inner Basin Trail will eventually intersect with the Weatherford Trail which then leads to Humphrey's Peak, the tallest point in Arizona at 12,637 feet.

Simple & Stunning
I did this trail on my honeymoon and it was by far our favorite part of the whole trip. One thing that the reviews don't mention is that the road to get to this spot is prettttty scary & not maintained for passenger vehicles. If you're looking to see some beautiful leaves the best time to go it's late September to Mid-October. We were there on October 10th and it was gorgeous. Absolutely stunning.
