#1 - Humphreys Peak
Kachina Peaks Wilderness
hardYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarGray Star(2263)
Length: 10.5 mi • Est. 6 h 30 m
Humphreys Peak is the highest point in Arizona at 12,633 feet and one of the most scenic viewpoints in the San Francisco Peaks. On clear days hikers can see the Grand Canyon from the summit. The alpine forest trail is located just north of Flagstaff. This is a strenuous rocky trail with over 3,000 feet elevation gain. Humphreys Trail is open year round but snow can make the hike difficult during the winter months. Since the snow cover and lack of signage can make navigation difficult, it is recommended that you use the app's recorder feature to avoid getting lost. First section in the woods is all rocks and roots, watch your knees and ankles on the way down (hiking poles highly recommended). At the top there are several false summits and a decent amount of loose rock. Up past the treeline is usually very windy and exposed, use sunscreen. Afternoon storms are common in the late summer.

Fun hike around a part of Schultz Pass Road. Very picturesque, with a narrow pathway through the forest most of the time. Fantastic views and amazing scenery just on the outskirts of Flagstaff. Show more
