There are so many places to see and stop in Coconino National Forest. We would recommend adding it to your list of places to visit while in AZ!

So many trails to choose from! The scenery can be quite different depending on where in the National Forest you are. Loved the variety.

Huge with lots of different trails and views to see. It’s beautiful to drive through with a few stops. Our daughter had fun too with the different types and sizes of rocks and cool trees.

A lot of great trails to walk and some to climb. Breathtaking scenery everywhere you look. A must see in the area. We stayed in Flagstaff and it was a short, scenic drive. Remember to bring water and enjoy!
