Trail Information

Highlights

FR301 is an easy dirt road trail that will take you under 30 minutes- and it starts right at the city limits of Flagstaff! This is a great family outing or a good way to get in a hike when you're in Flagstaff and don't have all day. The mudding is good after a soaking rain or when the snow is melting. At the end of FR301, you'll find a nice half-mile hike to Fisher Point with views of Walnut Canyon. It is a more interesting drive and a quicker hike into the canyon than the other Arizona Trail hiking trailhead located less than a mile farther down Old Walnut Canyon. The Arizona Trail is accessible from another parking lot along the route. You are likely to see Elk during their migration season, especially in late fall and early winter. This area is heavily affected by bark beetles, and you can hear them work on the trees in the summer if you are quiet.

Still open as of the end of December 2023. FR301 has suffered additional rutting due to the wet winter of 2022-2023 and has larger and deeper mud holes now. It is harder than before especially when wet.
