Trail Information

Highlights

Located in Flagstaff and the Coconino National Forest, Elden Springs Road is a short connector road up the eastern flank of Mount Elden that many will find useful. It is the third way to get to the high-elevation trailheads and mountain biking of Schultz Pass (along with Schultz Pass Rd. from the east and west). It is the best way to get up there from the east side of Flagstaff or from the interstate. There is also access to horse trails along Elden Springs Rd, and a fun rock garden for kids to play on is at the trailhead at Waypoint 4. This is an ordinary forest road accessible by all kinds of vehicles in good weather. A gate may close the road during deep snow conditions, but it will otherwise be open year-round.

Elden Springs Rd. is an ordinary Forest Service road, and a connector; nothing special.
