Walnut Canyon National Monument
#1 of 35 Nature & Parks in Flagstaff
After spending four days at the Grand Canyon where it's just massive, going to Walnut Canyon and being able to hike the trails, and get up close and personal with the dwellings, and nature was an amazing experience.
The Park also offers a less strenuous trail along the rim of the Canyon where you can see cliff dwellings within the cliffs below.

The amazing grandeur of nature and spirit of this sacred land in northern arizona is truly amazing.

Riordan Mansion State Historic Park
#6 of 35 Nature & Parks in Flagstaff
Tucked between bustling Northern Arizona University and busy South Milton Road is a gem of a local attraction, Riordan Mansion State Historic Park.
This park was very accommodating to our needs, portable seats for those who cannot stand for long periods of time, umbrellas in case it rained (as it does a lot), and special requests.

One drives north on Hwy 180 about 24 miles from Flagstaff, turns west on well marked dirt road, drives a mile in and parks.
It reminded us of Bryce National Park in Utah.
Arizona Snowbowl
#11 of 35 Nature & Parks in Flagstaff
The ride takes about 30 minutes each way and you can spend as much time on the summit as you please where a forest service park ranger is available for a chat.
Slowly riding up/down the mountain while tree tops float by is a great back-to-nature experience.

Humphrey's Peak Trail - San Francisco Peaks
#15 of 35 Nature & Parks in Flagstaff
I visited in September and even though the weather was lovely clear blue skies and sunshine when I set off from the car park at the bottom, as I got further up things got worse.
Park and jump off at upper ski lift (circa 9 500 Ft) and arrive at 12 600+ feet with 360 degree view and back in a few hours based on fitness.
