#1 - Humphreys Peak
Kachina Peaks Wilderness
hardYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarGray Star(2875)
Length: 10.4 mi • Est. 6 h 12 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.

Length: 0.7 mi • Est. 27 m
Walnut Canyon has limited visitor access. The Rim Trail and public restrooms are open. The Island Trail and visitor center remain closed. The park's hours are 9:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. daily. Visitors must exit the park by 4:30 p.m. It has been more than 700 years since Walnut Canyon echoed with the words and sounds of a vital pueblo community. You'll see 25 cliff dwelling rooms along the trail; more are visible across the canyon. Spectacular canyon scenery and plantlife. Strenuous, especially for those not acclimated to 7,000' elevation. The trail descends 185 vertical feet into the canyon, and returns the same way. The trail is paved, but not accessible to wheelchairs, due to steep canyon terrain and many stairs.Show more
