Nice easy trail for people and pups. Went while visiting some friends in the area as an easy afternoon hike and fit the bill perfectly.

Absolutely stunning. Wish I would’ve caught the colors of the aspens. But still beautiful.

Yes just a road, but offers great views of the National Monument that you will not get in the park. Also a great place to run since the road is not technical. Would have been nice to visit when the lookout station was open. There was a sign posted that said you can go up there if a ranger is in the station.

Absolutely gorgeous! Excellent choice for those who want to practice hiking longer trails but without too much elevation gain. Also great for those without 4WD because you can park at snowbowl!

Well maintained, well marked trail that's perfect for a quick hike after work or before breakfast on the weekends. There are a lot of cool trees and rocks along the trail so it'd be a fun hike for families.

Great distance for travelers staying in Flagstaff! I went up on a Monday afternoon with not too many people along the way. The incline gradually gets steeper and steeper and the air thinner and thinner. Visiting from WA, this trail felt like a typical incline, though the elevation is always an adjustment. Views are amazing and getting up to the lookout tower is worth it! Though the gate to climb the tower was closed when I got there, it’s still an amazing view from the ground! Took me just under 3 hours with stopping along the way, I also clocked in at 5.7 miles RT.

Great trail.. took our time and enjoyed the views. Had a few nice climbs too! Took the trail right to left and it was easier than the other way.

This trail has it all. Views, elevation, good coverage, rocks, snow & ice. Bring poles and micro spikes. It’s gets very icy and technical after the trail splits at the saddle (11,4000) prior to final ascent to Humphrey’s peak. Not safe without proper gear. Beautiful 360 degree views from the top. Gorgeous sunsets from AZ Snowbowl parking lot of you time it right.

OMG pretty. lots of dogs on the trails. all cute

I'm only giving this 4 stars till next year when I go back and see the aspens all golden yellow. I can't even imagine since this is already a beautiful hike. Be ready for an incline but totally doable. The pines and views are gorgeous. The yellow leaves all over the ground was like confetti. A wonderful change of season!

Great trail running trail

Hiked on 11/3 still lots of snow and ice but it’s pretty well packed, micro spikes are a must. I’m in pretty good shape and hike constantly, the elevation will kick your butt here, be prepared to go slower than you ever thought you’d need to, especially in the last mile. Last mile is very steep, the wind is serious and brings the chill well below freezing any time of day. Hike is worth every step, views from the top are to die for, Grand Canyon and Sedona can both be seen and it’s a 360 degree view of the world around you.

Amazing views but as of 11/2/18 there was too much snow to get to the peak without crampons or microspikes. We were were able to get to the 2nd false peak with just trekking poles and our regular hiking boots but as the temp dropped the snow began to turn too icy for us to continue. If you are going to try to make it to the top without proper equipment (which i do NOT recommend) then make sure you go within the next few days on a WARM day and get to the saddle by noon so that way the snow on the exposed portions of the trail on your way to the peak will be slushy enough for you to really dig in and make it to the top and back before the temp drops at 3/4pm and freezes over making it too dangerous to traverse.

Absolutely gorgeous! I just went on Saturday Oct 27th and there were still tons of yellow leaves! Totally worth hiking the entire trail to see the snow peaks as well. I brought my little dog and she did well on the hike too.

10/26/18 I completed this hike left trail head about 7:30 am and hit the summit around 12:00 pm what a hike their was a lot of snow thankfully I was properly equipped the most rewarding hike I’ve done to date if you can only get to the saddle you would still love the view

I had to dig deep in the mind to finish this one I’m not sure if I want to ever go back this close to November but I will try it in summer

Probably my favorite trail! So beautiful and amazing views all the way up! Challenging but doable and still very enjoyable! It’s actually 5 miles total, 2.5 miles up and 2.5 miles down. But totally worth it and would do it again!

The trail is not 0.8 miles total. The cave itself is a mile long, and you have to walk to the cave entrance from the parking lot, so my phone said 2.15 miles total after we did it. Come ready for climbing and lots of rocks. Bring multiple flashlights and and extra jacket because it’s cold in the cave. But it was pretty cool and different than most trails!

Clear gravel path with great views the whole way up! It took about 2 hours to get up and back. We definitely made some stops for water and pictures since it was 70 and sunny!! My dogs and I started around 1 and there wasn’t much shade on the trail.

The trail itself does not lead anywhere too special as far as we could tell, so we kept on the AZ trail and went to fishers point. Beautiful!

Trail is not well marked from Bootleg Day Use parking area to the connector trail across the creek and up on the ridge. The trail is a bit technical due to all the loose rock.

Nice family hike. Takes a little longer than what I planned, but its worth it.

Did the hike yesterday. Snow actually not that bad yet. Good time to sneak in a hike before it accumulates.

Easier if you're short. Tall people will have a harder time in some spots. chunky ground, a low ro walk. Have a headlamp. Makes it much better. Dress for the chill.

A beautiful and challenging hike! Went looking for the Fall colors, but found Winter instead. Almost no Aspens left except for the Aspens at lower elevations. Also, lots of snow right now. I'm 5"2 and snow was up to the top of my calves through the Abineau part of the loop. very chilly so make sure you dress appropriately. There were some steep parts covered in ice or mud, so be sure to bring a trustworthy tree branch to accompany your hike if you're a clutz like me. ☺️

We made it to the trailhead with a low clearing vehicle. If you're not worried about a couple scuffs and you can drive carefully, then you'll be fine. look for mile marker 9123J if the GPS cuts out on you. Right before this is a giant hidden rock that will hurt your car. BEWARE. Other than that the road after this marker will lead you to the trail head, there's plenty of parking there.

Good views overlooking the city of Flagstaff and surrounding hills with pretty aspen's at the top. A fairly busy/popular trail. A decent and steady incline makes for a great workout (my app clocked the route as 5.7mi up and back). Lots of switchbacks... glad I wore my sturdy rubber bottom hiking shoes, as it's gets rocky in parts, definitely saved my toes and makes for a quicker descent.

The trail was well marked all the way up. It was a little technical in some spots if you don’t hike regularly. I personally had no problem, except for the fact I’m a flat lander from Missouri. I had to stop a take a few breaks, but I still made it to the top in two hours. I only drank maybe two liters of water. I would definitely hike it again.

Considerable amount of snow up here on 10/19. Bring poles or an ice ax and wear boots with crampons/microspikes. Post-holed quite a bit near the summit so snowshoes should also be a consideration depending on weather conditions. High winds on the ridge the last mile or so. Hike was 10 miles roundtrip and the views were incredible. I could see both the Grand Canyon and Sedona from the summit. Also, AMS is real. If you’re coming from low elevation spend at least a night in Flagstaff to acclimate. You’ll feel better the day of your hike if you do.

Couldn't make it to summit due to snow and wind but will return soon. One of the best games that I ever had.

Difficult for the first 2 miles but well worth the views the rest of the way down. Eldon Lookout trail is washed out higher up. I lost the trail for a minute. Once at the top I changed into a sweatshirt and beanie as temperatures were very cold. The north side of Mt Eldon were slick with snow/ice from recent snowfall. Once I started to drop in elevation the sweatshirt and beanie went back into the backpack. Excellent views from the whole way down.
