Not sure why this notes the trail is closed. It was open and had half a dozen hikers out on it. Dog friendly too. Great moderate hike with beautiful aspens and dense forest. The drive back to the trailhead was a bit rough but no four-wheel drive needed.

loved it!

Lovely Nature Walk!

Did 7km to get ourselves acclimated, will come back and do the full hike next time.

good mix of terrain on the trail, uphill and downhill sections, lots of wildflowers and some nice views of the area. spotted a mature red necked thorny lizard basking on a rock, there seems to be lots along the trail but not fully developed into adults. watch out for falling trees!!

An easy path for hubby and me to enjoy together

wish it wasn't so crowded.

Very fond of this trail. Have gone both directions now. Strong preference for turning right at the sign and getting the steep up portion done first. We hiked the last 4 miles in rain / hail. Bring a rain shell.

Always loved this trail give yourself a couple of hours to finish the whole thing and take it all in! well worth the drive ⛰

Great easy trail fun little stations to add additional exercises along the way.

Great hike! Did the entire trail plus added a bit extra on by going up the Weatherford trail a ways before turning back - would up a little over 12 miles round trip.My wife and I enjoyed all the new growth and wild flowers after a month of some monsoon rains.It was 68 degrees - perfect, wonderful getaway from the valley. Good workout hike too,

Amazing trail. Wonderful views. One of first times using the free app. It stopped recording somehow so not exactly how far i actually hiked. Preparing to go Havasupai - this trail has lots of ups and more ups! Good work out for me. Temp in low 80’s with overcast skies made it perfect !!!

very cool topography!

One of my favorite hikes. So beautiful!

steep but worth the effort, beautiful views and forests. leave early to avoid monsoons

Ridiculously hard to find trailhead

Loved it! Good parking lot. Only hiked 2 miles in and out as it started to get more difficult for our small pup. Beautiful scenery. Good tree coverage. Definitely will be back!!

Everything Lisa Abe wrote in her review is spot on. I went up the Abineau side and got stopped by monsoons about 2 miles in (and ~1150 ft up) but it had the beginnings of a great outing!

(Thanks for the extra help with the directions! I see 9213J clearly notated in the written directions “from Flagstaff” under this trail but I used the link to google maps and it does not get you all the way to the trailhead. Your notes were super helpful.)

This hike is open now! I started at a quarter to 6 this morning and didn’t see a soul. I went up Abineau and down Bear Jaw. Since the trail just reopened they haven’t had time to clear up a few fallen trees. They are passable but take caution as you do. I’m glad I went the route I did but the views would’ve been better had I done it the reverse. I saw a ton of deer and even a 6 Point buck (I think that’s how you say it). Very neat! The drive in is fine on the dirt road (I have a low clearance vehicle) but gets dicey when you see the turn off to go onto 9123J. My gps wanted me to continue on 418 but there is a sign that clearly directs you to turn onto 9123J. There are some spots to park immediately on 9123J if you don’t feel like driving on the slightly hairier (big rocks and some puddles but nothing my car couldn’t clear) road but it’ll add about 1.5 miles (round trip). I loved the views here and was glad I went early as the monsoon clouds started rolling in as I was finishing around 9.

Absolutely no shade, too sunny for a real run!

Might feel boring because it's mostly a gravel road all the way to the fire tower. Good views though and still a good hike regardless

steady hike along a forest service road, if you like that sort of thing. cool views from the top and it was cool to see a fire watch tower. the views were nice but the hike itself isn't that exciting

The trail was closed

I prefer more challenging hikes, but settled for this because apparently the entire Coconino forest is closed. It was scenic and easy and aided in getting a little exercise for the day. Great for a family with children or someone looking for a nice trail run.

Great little loop to do with the family!! Very scenic and not technical at all! My youngest really liked the little fitness challenges along the way!

Hiked this yesterday since most of the Coconino is closed off! The path is really easy to follow since it's actually the dirt road that the ranger uses to get up to the watch tower. We started around 1:30 PM and met about 10 people total.

Trail is closed due to drought.

A really nice hike. The first section is flat, but then gradually increases in altitude. Only the last section is steeper. Awesome views of the San Francisco Peaks and Sunset Crater lava flow.

Since Humphreys was closed this weekend.

Still snow at the top of Abineau. Hard to connect to the rest of the trail.
