Overview

Situated in the vast ponderosa pine woodlands of the Coconino National Forest, Fry Canyon Trail offers peaceful serenity only minutes from downtown Flagstaff. The numerous designated shady campsites on the western end of the trail make excellent base camps for exploring the area while still providing easy access to all the services found in Flagstaff. The high country abounds with elk, deer, and wild turkey, often seen when hiking one of the many area trails. The road's namesake, Fry Canyon, is a favorite with the canyoneering and climbing crowd. Beautiful red rock Sedona is just a 30-minute drive south through the scenic Oak Creek Canyon. There are plenty of forest roads to explore through the high country pinelands and wide-open prairies. There are even a few gnarly trails to provide offroading challenges for those so inclined. Whatever you are looking for, it isn't far away from the Fry Canyon Trail.
