Hike one of the few national forests in Arizona.
Coconino National Forest features different conifer trees, mountainous peaks, streams, lakes, and rivers. Anglers with current fishing licenses are welcome to do fly fishing along the river. Horseback riding is permitted on most trails in the forest, except Humphreys Trail, the Inner Basin Trail in the Kachina Peaks Wilderness, and Elden Lookout Trail. One of the most stunning views in the area includes the San Francisco Peaks. Humphreys Peak is the tallest, but surrounding peaks include the Abineau, Rees, Fremont, Agassiz, and Doyle.
Blue spruce, Douglas fir, Rocky Mountain juniper, and Ponderosa pine are some of the trees you will see in the forest. Please bring plenty of water and good hiking shoes with you as you hike. Leashed dogs are allowed to hike with you on the trails. Please note that you can reserve a campsite online using a credit card; however, in-person reservations at the national forest accept cash only. Bring your friends and family to this pristine national forest the next time you visit Flagstaff, Arizona.
