A short easy loop that's just south of Flagstaff.

Short, beautiful trail that is one mile. Very secluded and easy to get to.

Nice, local morning hike.... a little buggy in monsoon season....

This "trail" has no official trail sign and thus no trailhead. I'm not sure if this is an actual trail or just folks wandering around. Definitely not worth the time and effort.

Coming from forest highlands this now has no trespassing signs and no parking.

Nice hike, generally easy. The stream and the views are really pretty. My dog loved running through the water. The only thing that threw me off was that it seemed like there were several trails going the same directions, not sure which one is the actual loop.

The entrance to trailhead is gated and closed. No notes here that it is a seasonal hike.

We were unable to do this hike, as the location stated as the trailhead is in a private, gated neighborhood. Perhaps there’s another option for where to begin but the app tried taking us to a gated neighborhood.

Short but sweet trail. A favorite across from my Flagstaff camping area.

Surprisingly nice trail! Lots of flowers by the stream and decent shade on half the trail. We started from the cul-de-sac as shown within the private Forest Highlands community, but you can also start by branching off the Griffith Springs trail loop at the north end. If starting in Forrest Highlands park up high on the main road near the overpass then walk down the road to a pump house. Cut under the road and go through the tunnel... super cool for kids! Trial hops back and forth over a small stream but wasn't too muddy.
