    Don't miss the opportunity to visit Walnut Canyon. While the Island Trail has 300 plus steps, the trail condition is exceptional and well maintained. It is essential that you know your limits and that you remember that you are at 7000 plus feet. Take your time on the climb up out of the canyon, stopping to take in the view, have a drink, and rest a bit. If you are not up to the stairs, you can enjoy the ADA accessible rim trail and view the ruins from a distance.

    Lowell is one of the best places to educate yourself about the Earth moon and the planets, especially Pluto. Learn history and lore of the sky. they let you come and go so a daytime experience is totally different when you return that night.
    Spend a day at Lowel and learn something new about our sky, well worth the price of admission!

    This was a fantastic stop! We started on the paved lava flow loop, but then veered off and took our walk to the cinder/dirt pathway. We were able to get up so close to the lava flow, deposits, etc. It was amazing to look up and see the volcano. It was very intereesting and enjoyable for everyone in the family. There is plenty of parking in a paved lot. There are bathrooms and a vistor center.

    After researching the area before our trip we decided to visit Wupatki National Monument. Planned on Sunset Crater as well but due to the Tunnel fire that portion was closed to visitors. Wupatki was still an amazing place to visit. There are walkways that lead you through multiple ancient ruins from a Pueblo community. You could walk past homes, ballgame pits, and even a blowhole. There is a visitor center where you can pick up a guide that explains the ruins. Make sure you visit all three Pueblo areas and not just the one at the visitor center.

    Absolutely one of the best days of my life so let me explain the whole thing before you go watch football since im very young i was obviously scared (were talking under 13 but not saying age) but I went to my boy scout troop and I was halfway prepared for the trip I forgot to bring a helmet but only hit my head once, fell twice but did not hurt got to the end we turned all flashlight off and experienced pitch black. when we got out we finished camping and headed home. Tomorrow we are heading to pivot rock in coconino forest and it will be a blast.

    First time skiing here. Besides the horrible automated pad on one lift line, which caused more problems than it solved, it was a good experience. Beautiful scenery.wish they had more ways to connect blue and green runs so you could do low et level blue and hook into greens. Other than that a fun experience

    We had previously done the adventure course in 2016 and my then 12 year old and I finished the black course. This year we were scheduled for the zip course but a foot of snow, cooler temps and wind caused us to cancel a few days before. They gave us a full refund but we came over to get a black Tshirt (my son still had his black band for proof that we finished). The man working there said it was smart we didn’t do the zip course because hands start to get pretty cold in bad weather.

    There are a dozen stores and two dozen restaurants in easy walking area. There was a small street festival in the central area where one block was closed. Crafts, hot chocolate, smores, a band. Great downtown area.

    An outstanding collection of Native American art including jewelry, baskets, pottery and more. We spent about 3 hours and saw about half the exhibits. I have a much deeper understanding of the Colorado Plateau region and the tribes. We could have breezed through the various exhibits but we are the “read everything and move slowly, while taking time to appreciate each exhibit.” I hope we can return some day. (We are seniors and while there is a small children’s hands-on discovery area my guess is a 3 hour visit for kids here would be difficult.) This museum is a gem!

    The Riordan Mansion was by far the most impressive Historic Mansion/House/Home I have ever seen. The guided tour is a well worth option. Jacob our tour guide was very knowledgeable and helpful. The contents of the mansion were extremely well laid out and maintained. The one hour tour was a reasonable amount of time to spend inside the mansion but you could easily have spent 2 or more hours if you wanted to see and read each caption throughout the mansion. It is a must stop if you really want to see how the area started. I am so happy I added this tour on as initially it was not on my list of things to do in the Flagstaff area and it was by far the most surprising of all the things we did, Thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. NOTE* tours are limited to 12 Pax. Call and make a reservation ahead of time would be a good suggestion if you do not want to miss out. Tours are the only way you can get to enter the Riordan Mansion and for sure you really want to see the well furnished interior .

    Combination Amtrak station and Flagstaff Visitor's Center. It's very a great place to learn about Flagstaff and watch the trains. As railfans, we loved sitting on the platform watching the many trains go by. It also has a nice gift shop.

    This was the first time I had done the hike in Winter. we started at 830am and plenty of parking space with good signposts on where to park and start the hike. We were well prepared for bad weather, we were very lucky, it was a great day, clear and sunny........until we got to the saddle after the treeline!! The wind was very gusty and very cold, so the last part of the hike was difficult, a few people who did not have the right equipment were turning back.
    The hike is great and we had fantastic views, despite the wind. Be well prepared with the right boots, jackets, hats and particularly gloves! The hot coffee I took up was much appreciated.
    This took us 8 hours up and down, we took it easy on the way down, the forest was fantastic in the snow,

    Great place for a walk. Wide, flat, groomed trail punctuated with activity spots. Beautiful mountains always in view. Windy (which seems to be a common weather occurrence in spring in Flagstaff) and sunny. Many joggers, runners and mountain-bikers as well.

    If you want to connect with the Coconino Forest trail system, head straight back from the parking lot (do not veer to the left, which sets you on the loop).

    Adequate and free parking. Easy to find.

    The peaks and surrounding scenery is very pretty and easily viewed on the way to the Wupatki National Monument.
