Great trail but poorly marked. Got lost on another trail as several trails intersect. Still a great hike to acclimate yourself to the elevation

Beginner mountain cyclist.... not easy. Saw plenty others do it, but I am on my 2-3 ride. Easy beginning then narrows.

A pretty trail. Not amazing but this was my first day in Flagstaff so I enjoyed getting a feel of the Flagstaff scenery. Not too hard, I was expecting there to be more rocks to climb after reading other reviews. The hardest part of the trail was the part that wasn’t actually the trail..as we got lost for a bit! We only followed obvious looking trails so I’m not sure what happened but luckily had the AllTrails app to get us back on the loop. Nice views from the higher parts of the walk.

Challenging trail as I am not a very outdoorsy person. Altitude sickness wiped my partner out as he was used to sea level altitude so beware guys!

Ran this trail yesterday morning and absolutely loved it! Lots of parking, portable toilets, and fantastic views of the nearby mountains. The loop trail is called the Nate Avery Trail and if you follow it counter-clockwise, the mileage is marked. It begins to the right just after the spur for the Arizona Trail. Running is not my favorite thing to yet--I still prefer hiking--but the scenery here made the miles fly by. The aggregate surface is comfortable and the path is wide. Enjoy it!

Very nice walk with beautiful scenery. When I went it was a bit crowded with bikers, but still very pleasant. Trailheads and directions are clearly marked. Logan and I took the Anasazi trail this trip.

For a short hike, I really liked this one! Seemed like the elevation gain was more. Interesting scenery, liked the variety of up and down and over rocks. Dog loved it! Have to add the Elden Lookout next time!

Beautiful hike, glad I got a 6am start-lots of people coming up as I was heading down. Steady summit through forest then you make it to the ridge and get some great views. As you follow the trail up to the summit after the ridge is where your false summits begin, stay steady, take breaks in areas with plenty of room for others to pass and enjoy the views. Your almost on a stair master the entire trek BUT you won’t regret it. The trek down is easier, obviously, but stay alert and watch your step on the tree roots. Hikers coming up have the right away as you come down which gives you some time to catch your breath, say hello to fellow hikers and stay hydrated. Have fun, be safe, be smart, pack snacks and plenty of water. 5hrs total for my moving time with about 40mins total of stops and breaks. You’ve got this!!

Beautiful!!! Absolutely breath taking views. Easy hike/walk. Some areas with an incline then flat overall. Easy to find, multiple options for loops, and an activity course along the way if you wish. Do this hike!!

Nice trail for anyone that doesn’t like much of an elevation gain. A stroll in the woods that gets your heart beat up. TIP: go to the front desk of the little America hotel. They will let you walk through to the paved start to the trail behind the hotel. I don’t know how you would find it otherwise. Also there are two loops and we got a bit lost- use the app to help you find your way!

Excellent trail for a summer hike! I started @6am right as the sun had risen & temp was about 57F. I’m glad I brought a light sweater to keep me warm. Took me approx 3hrs to get to the peak! I have to admit...it felt like one of those never ending trails & actually started experiencing some fatigue & headaches as I gained elevation. Great hike overall!! Hiked it over Labor Day weekend & the views were so great :) the gain is gradual but once you hit the last stretch it definitely gets the sweat going!

Great hike for beginners who want a challenge. Elevation can be difficult and the more you scale up the mountain the rockier it gets! Bring lots of water-don’t underestimate how hard this can be just by elevation itself!! It’s also half shade half sun and I wouldn’t necessarily call this bouldering but like I said-there’s a lot of rocks to maneuver around so beware and be safe!

Great hike if you’re an intermediate to advanced hiker. It’s a very rocky trial-although I never felt I was truly bouldering. I brought my hiking poles which helped significantly and they were never in my way because of the rocks. If you’re not acclimated to the elevation then this will seem impossible but if you’re use to hiking in the area then this won’t come as a shock for you but there’s about a 2,000ft elevation change. I’m a pretty experienced hiker and found it difficult to breathe but it wasn’t impossible by any means. The difficulty is just elevation change minus the rockiness along the way which I expected on an unmaintained trail. There’s some shade in many areas under trees but the majority of this was exposed. There’s also many overlooks you can hike up to and hike back down if you don’t want to make it all the way! I started up Fatman’s Loop which started as gradual and got rockier as I went up. Then the trail veers left and the switchbacks begin....It’s somewhat clearly marked although one time there was a fake trail headed nowhere haha. I used this app to stay on track but once you’re past Fatmans Loop the trail is pretty distinguished. In all it only took me 3 hours and 20 minutes to complete-a little over 2 hours going up and it seemed as though I ran back down

The dirt road to the trail is closed Friday, Saturday, and Sunday (9/6 to 9/8)....don’t drive all the way there to find that out like I did.

Did this hike 2 days ago and it was definitely a tough hike if you are from lower elevation and haven’t done a big hike in about a year like myself. Loved the different layers of the hike with the atmosphere constantly changing. Really nice to start an alpine hike below tree line and then make it above. Unfortunately I started having symptoms of altitude sickness once we were above 12,000 feet. Made it up the ridge line to the first false summit and then decided to chose safety over desire, so we turned back. However, even if you get just to the saddle or the first false summit you still get amazing views. We were able to see the beginning of the Grand Canyon from the first false summit - truly amazing. Going down on this hike is not one of those that is super quick where you can basically just “run” down the mountain because of how rocky and tree root heavy this trail is. So be prepared to have a tough hike down as well. Really worth it in the end though!
