One drives north on Hwy 180 about 24 miles from Flagstaff, turns west on well marked dirt road, drives a mile in and parks. Then a 10-minute easy hike takes one inside a former volcano composed largely of poorly cemented fragments. There are abundant crystals of hornblende and other minerals everywhere. This long-extinct tuffaceous volcano is on a major faultline... 更多
This is one of the best family hikes in the Flagstaff area. I've hiked this more than a dozen times with friends, family, kids, dogs, whatever. It has stunning view of the Northern Arizona volcanic field and the Grand Canyon to the north...on a clear day of course. Just a couple of miles to a wicked area of volcanic erosion.... 更多
This is a fairly flat, pleasant 1.3 mile hike to the end of the trail, where you walk back the same 1.3 miles. Near the end of the trail, you pass by some very interesting rock formations in a lovely valley. At the end of the trail, the side of the volcano has fallen away, and it is beautiful to... 更多
We enjoyed this easy but very scenic hike. Best to go early in the day during summer months to avoid heat & sun although there is a fair amount of shade.
So this trail is not that long but if you need some relaxing or alone time then this is your place. The volcanic rocks are amazing and beyond the ladder is where the fun begins. I loved this place and I would go there again.
I'm assuming this is the Red Mountain along Rt. 89 between Flagstaff and Valle, AZ. It's been years since we've been there but reliving it through pictures from the past brings it all back. A former coworker and friend first mentioned this place to me in 1980 while my future wife and I were living at the Grand Canyon. The... 更多
My boys had a blast! I easily hiked this with the baby in my Tula. The closer you get to the base the scenery changes and it's beautiful! There is a little ladder so heads up to those that can't climb. Bring water and heads up there is no bathroom along the trails.....We did this hike in the later part... 更多
It is a smaller park with great views, a moderate trail to walk. Lots of Indian vendors to buy jewelry or souvenirs. It is not a major canyon, but interesting.
After spending the morning and early afternoon in Winslow we decided to head back to Flagstaff area where we were staying. Along the drive back I had sent a message to our friends that we were going to stop for a short hike at the Red Mountain. So we arrived at the Red Mountain Trail head around 3pm and the... 更多
A little more "off the beaten path" though it is right on Hwy 180 heading toward Grand Canyon. This is a easy to moderate hike with a unique amphitheater of hoodoors and cliffs at the end. There is even a small slot canyon to explore. Good for the whole family.
