Sunflower Flat is a 160-acre fenced wildlife habitat preserve situated along a seldom-maintained forest trail with four superb campsites nestled in the pines of the Kaibab National Forest. Up a short spur trail, JD Cabin is an old homestead with a log cabin and barn. James Douglas settled here in the late 1800s and is supposedly buried nearby. The cabin is old but likely built in the early 1900s as a replacement for the original log structure. Camping isn't allowed at either the wildlife habitat or the homestead, but they are interesting places to visit.

The trail is rutted and muddy after any rain. A carefully driven 2WD with clearance should be just fine.
