Hero: Back Road to Lockett Meadow
small-aa Icon

Located on the eastern slope of the San Francisco Peaks in the Coconino National Forest north of Flagstaff, this is the fun "Back Road" to get to Lockett Meadow, one of the most scenic destinations in Arizona! If the trail is open, and that's a big if, in this case, this is a very enjoyable, mildly challenging, lightly traveled, and scenic trail with a great view of Sunset Crater and the Cinder Hills. On a clear day, from the right vantage point, you can see the eastern edge of the North Rim of the Grand Canyon and the Vermillion Cliffs. Even better, the camping higher up is scenic and lightly used.
