Hiked with my pup, she enjoyed herself. Very quiet, but a little rocky. Not much shade so bring enough water! View is amazing!

Pretty straight forward walk, perfect for families and dogs. If you are doing several hikes in the area but are not used to the altitude, this is a good place to start.

This trail is a great alternative to Elden Lookout. The mileage is similar, the view is awesome, but the elevation gain is much more manageable for a wide range of hikers. The only issue we had was starting off in the wrong direction. We had added mileage because we didn’t realize we were off course right away. There is a very obvious trail at trailhead that is incorrect. Pay close attention to the map via the app to stay on course. There are other turn offs to get to the lookout that are easily missed, so keep an eye out.

Beautiful morning, wee bit chilly, but once we got going it was good. Great trail. Saw a huge heard of elk run across the trail. Fisher Point was a massive overlook. Easy hike.

Good trail! It was easy and anyone can do it. We started from a trail parallel to it and then met back up with it. Awesome view at the point; now my favorite hike in flagstaff.

This is in my backyard so I’ve been exploring the area lately. This is great if I just want to do a short, rewarding hike. connected to lots of other trails too

This was a very pleasant, easy hike. It's basically flat without any technical challenges, so most people should be able to do this. It wasn't shaded much at the beginning, but once you get deeper in, it's more shady. It was very quiet, pretty, and relaxing. Fisher point had very nice views. I usually only hike at the bottom of sandy's canyon so it was nice to see the top! Again, recommended for a wide variety of athletic levels and groups. My boyfriend and I did it in exactly 2 hours at a very leisurely pace with breaks for water, views, and a horny toad we saw on the way. PS There was ample, side street parking across from the lake. Go to the south tip of the lake, and that's where the hike starts.

Definitely not a moderate trail. Nice walk through the trees with a great view at the end.

This was a nice stroll through the pines with a great lookout at the end. Low traffic which is nice but kind of a boring walk. Not hard at all would call this easy for sure. Good for dogs though, we brought ours and it tired her out in the end but she did great. Good to do once but would not go again

A peaceful walk. Not much view until the end but it was worth it. Very good afternoon stroll. Some previous posts are saying that the alltrails map is wrong. I think it might be fixed now because we followed it and it was correct. But just in case - when you pull up on the road and come to the trail, take on the right path (the wide one). And then just follow it straight for ages until you get to a t-section, then turn right. After that there are signs for the last 0.6 miles.

A pleasant trail through pine forests.

The best part of this trail is the viewpoint at the very end. Like other reviewers have said, most of the trail is a two-track road. At about 1.8 miles, there is a small parking area on the right, where the trail continues to the viewpoint. It's easy to miss

nice little 4 mile hike, not the best scenery for keeping you interested but definitely worth it for the end. The look out area at the canyon is quite breath taking. Great for pictures and doesn't take very long.

to be clear, its 4.5 miles round trip. took about 2 hrs at a leisurely pace with my dog. directions are incorrect, I instead used the coordinates someone shared in another review (took Butler going east from NAU and turned right onto N Skyview St.). you'll park on the shoulder of the road opposite of Lake Elaine. the trail splits right away and the one on the right is correct. (you'll know if you're on the right trail if it looks more like a dirt road). the last .5 miles does become more of a trail than a road.

The first couple miles was just following a forest road (Jeep trail) the last .5 or so very nice with a great view at the end.

Nice quick hike, probably the easiest way to get to Fisher Point. This trail is not singletrack, it is mostly on an old road.

If you’re used to hiking in Flagstaff this trail is a little boring. Definitely on the easier side. Some rocks and stuff when you get closer to the end of the trail. Also, watch for snakes at this point. The view is nice. Fairly shaded with lots of off-shoot trails should you want to explore.

Really enjoyed this walk. Took about 1.5 hours and was roughly 4.5 miles. The view at the end is very beautiful. You won't see many others on this trail and although I saw tons of bike tire tracks, I did not encounter any bikers. Enjoyed the view of San Francisco Peaks at the end of the trail. Would not rate this as moderate (more easy).

Amazing view looking down into Walnut Canyon when you reach the end. Trail connects along Arizona Trail and will take you to Walnut Canyon, Sandys Canyon, and more. Very easy to navigate and not a difficult trail at all. Felt more like a nice long walk. Had nice views of the San Francisco Peaks and the east side of Flagstaff at start of trail.

Ok hike...beautiful if you detour to fisher point at walnut canyon...app map says to start in a parking lot in a townhouse complex which was super confusing to us...we did so just to get our distance but I suggest parking and starting at foxglen park...easy to get lost if you don't use your gps and see where to hop onto another trail...

The map is confusing but once I found the park to park at I followed the sidewalk to flagstaff urban trail system and the trail was beautiful. Full of fire roads, dirt roads and single tracks. Took some off shoots and did a loop and got a great run in. Beautiful trails within urban environment but surrounded by hills and trees. Definitely Recommended if you're in this part of town or passing through.
