An easy but very satisfying walk. I don't know who the Fat Man was, but he had great taste in trails!

This trail was fun, we got lost though on the trail and ended up just turning around to get back to the trailhead. Definitely enjoyed still!

One of my favorite quick hikes in Flagstaff, AZ. Great bike ride, trail run or casual hike to bring guests.

A couple spots to hike a bike but rewarding downhill.

Nice loop gets the heart pumping and the views are fantastic. Elden trail is off of this one and I plan on trying that next time.

I hiked this trail last week and for me this was a hard trail.. I am visiting the area and hiking various trails, I will hike this one again and bring more water on the next outing to this trail.
