Came to Flagstaff (instead of Grand Canyon) for a long day hike, and was pleasantly surprised by the trails towards Humphrey's Peak. We started out aiming for the peak, though the staff in the ski lodge were brutally honest about winds and temperatures. We were...More

I have tackled this trail in three different, non-consecutive summers, with a wide variety of companions, and have been provided with a rich and varied experience each time, in no way redundant. Because afternoon thunderstorms, especially, are possible at any point in the summer, it...More

This is a great trail for anyone because it's not extremely dangerous and you can turn back as soon as you feel you've reached your uphill limit. Do this hike early on summer or warm spring/fall days otherwise you will be really cold for the...More

We had a small group including a four year old so at times it was challenging but we took several breaks, drank plenty of water. The change in elevation definitely took some getting used to but it was well with it. As advised by other...More

Part of the Kachina Peaks Wilderness Trail System. Be sure to sign the book so the Rangers know who you are, how many in your party, and what your destination is. The elevation climb is a challenge, but is do-able. Hiking sticks are highly recommended....More
