Hero: Behind the Peaks
small-aa Icon

Behind the Peaks is a scenic gem accessible by all kinds of vehicles! In the Spring, there are alpine meadows and wildflowers aplenty. The Fall brings glorious golden aspen on the slopes of the San Francisco Peaks, which dominate the skyline. You’ll have better views of the San Francisco Peaks along this route than anywhere else in the Flagstaff area and without the crowds. This route also provides access to major hiking trails like Bear Jaw, Abineau, Alto Spring, and the Arizona Trail. Like most of Flagstaff, this area is also great for mountain biking.
