Top Adventures in Coconino County

  • Hike the Wupatki Pueblo Trail

    Start your hike from the visitor center and walk the path down to the different ruins. Take time to explore the ruins and admire the surrounding scenery. The path is rather uneven in certain places and require some caution.

  • Hiking and Stargazing at SP Crater

    Off of the 89, just north of Flagstaff AZ, there is an unmarked dirt road just before a gas station. It leads out to privately owned land that's open to the public. Some friends and I went out there to get away from our day jobs. As we headed down...

  • Hike the Lava Flow Trail at Sunset Crater Volcano National Monument

    Get started on the hike from the parking lot. The first quarter mile is paved and very easy to walk. The rest of the trail takes you to the base of the volcano through lava flows and tubes. This is an incredible landscape to take in along your hike.

  • Hike the Abineau-Bear Jaw Loop

    This trail is slightly more hidden on the northern slope of the San Francisco Peaks, but well worth the drive just outside of Flagstaff. Do it during the last week of September, when summer gives it’s last wave goodbye in a spectacle of electric y...

  • Hike Inner Basin Trail #29

    When the golden fall color is at its peak is when this trail (and Locket Meadow camping) is the most popular.  I recommend getting there as early as possible, because parking goes FAST.  And note that the drive up to the trailhead is a bit sketchy...

    The free camping in the Coconino (as well as the many other national forests) is generally along the old Fire Roads, and old Forest Service Roads. You can tell if a road is one of these by a brown sign with an FS 123 or any other number, FS meanin...

  • Hike the Aspen Nature Loop at Humphrey's Peak

    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 n...
