The road was re-opened recently so I packed up the pup and headed up to Lockett Meadow. Even though the leaves are now on the ground, the hike was still very pretty. Definitely a cold windy hike with a high of 31 degrees so I suggest putting on layers and something to keep your ears warm! Great hike to bring dogs on. Saw at least 6 dogs on the trail not including my own, please be mindful of others and keep dogs on a leash. You never know how someone else is dog is going to react to your's.

P.S The road up can be a bit dodgy due to how narrow the road is, be careful and drive slow!

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

Rocky but worth the climb!

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!

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.

Terrible trail. Nothing but loose rocks!!! Pinnacle Peak or Camelback are much better.

The road was closed for the season (today is 10/20) so we had to hike in 3 miles to Lockett Meadows. The aspens were beautiful and the trail was pretty rocky at first.

I was excited for this one after getting to the Mt Olympia summit the week before. The views are great but the vast majority of the trail is a big, dirt access road so it’s often hard to feel like you’re in the wilderness. Also the peak is overcrowded with the people that drive there, however the little museum inside is pretty neat. Decent elevation gain but wasn’t as strenuous as I was expecting. Lastly it’s easy to feel like you’re cheating as the trailhead starts at 1000ft.

Most beautiful hike I have ever done! going from fall to winter was breathtaking. Highly recommend. Part of the hike was a steady incline but very worth it.

Absolutely gorgeous this time of year. The Aspen trees are so colorful and make for an amazing hike. Also, make sure to go the entire hike or you will be extremely disappointed. Once you make it up the large hill and round a corner and start to see the snowy capped mountain it opens up onto a beautiful colorful meadow — KEEP GOING! This isn’t the end. Follow it into the snowy mountains you will eventually see the trail continue and hike into the snowy beautiful mountain trail (if it’s still there) what a beautiful treat!! We lived this trail. With the colorful Aspen trees and fresh snow— seems we picked the perfect day!

The most amazing hike I have ever done! The colors were breathtaking and it was perfect temperature. Got to the end of the aspen trees and decided to keep going, and glad I did! Maybe 1-1.5 miles, I’m not sure, but you get to this meadow area and see the snow covered mountains, just spectacular! We did however get hailed & rained on at the very end of our hike as the weather called for it, but so worth it!

Gorgeous! According to the Apple Watch a little over 6 miles round trip but totally worth it. Also the directions through all trails app are wrong- look for forest road 552 which is about a mile
Before where the app says 522 is (this road doesn’t exist). A few bumpy and steep miles in the car, but I have a small Mazda and had no issues. Just take your time. One of the prettiest hikes I’ve done in AZ

beautiful trail. love it

Awesome Sunrise Hike Today❣️Amazing Incline Workout-Hard Hike to Summit but so rewarding with great views of Camel Back, Squaw Peak, etc.....bathrooms on site and plenty of parking, no charge!

Woohoo. Yes. Great. So good.

Great trail with a nice shadow cast in the mornings on most of the trail. Clean and well kept with the trail being made from Lois rocks most of the way. Great for myself and my family (dog included).

Absolutely beautiful hike with dense aspen trees. Now my favorite hike in AZ. We had a group ranging in age from 14-65 and were all able to complete the hike.

Favorite hike in Flagstaff. Hike leads to the top of Humphrey's Peak, if one decides to take it all the way. first few weekends of fall are a true spectacle to witness, as the Aspen forest becomes engulfed by an abundance of yellow leaves that emblaze the caldera's steps slopes.

It was a great morning hike with my brother and his dog. I do recommend getting there early to avoid higher temperatures.

About a half hour mellow hike before a more drastic ascension of the mountain. I would love it if it the whole way weren't loose rocks. I've got pretty good hiking shoes, but this started wearing on my ankles and knees.

Was looking forward to a more challenging hike, and decided to give Chalk Mt. a try. It started off nice and smooth. We heard about the waterfall near Berry Creek Falls and decided to take an extra 4 miles to see that! That was great. We then, trekked back down and started our ascend up on the Westridge Trail to Chalk Mt. This was by far, the most difficult hike I've ever done. The ascend up was torturous as we were attacked by bugs, then the sun just beat down on us, draining us of our energy. We were lucky enough to spot a person as we had gotten lost. Luckily, he had a map and pointed us in the right direction. The ups and downs were really bad on my toes, ankles, and knees. Not even halfway done, we ran out of water. We definitely suffered from dehydration. My recommendation, take LOTS of water. One measly water bottle won't cut it. Due to our detour to the waterfall, this ended up being 21 miles overall. You definitely need to go mentally and physically prepared before you tackle this one.

Another of my go-to trails when I can't drive far. Dixie Peak offers such a lovely 360 view.

I love this trail - it's my go-to for during the work week. Two bit extends it, which is well worth your while. But be sure you have proper hiking footwear because when the grade increases, there is a lot of loose rock.

Amazing hike! My wife, 2 year old daughter and I had a blast hiking through the aspens, up to the incredible view of the peaks! I was pleasantly surprised by the deceiving amount of elevation gain, thanks to the long, sweeping switchbacks. Can’t wait to do it again!

Really loved this hike. Narrow road up to the trailhead and narrow trail itself at times. Hiked with two labs without a problem. Gradual incline with stunning views of the aspen trees. Keep going to the end to see a gorgeous view of the San Francisco Peaks. Worth it. Bet it’s even more gorgeous in the fall. Bonus: no fee to enter and park.
