Beautiful forest in Flagstaff. Drove through it for some time and the landscape is so picturesque. Would love to visit the area in the future

Beautiful drive with fabulous, varied scenery. Would recommend visiting or driving the scenic byway on 89a.

It's always a treat getting away from the head of the valley! As soon as we enter the forest we put our windows down and let the cool air in! Lot's of places to stop along the way!

Experienced a small part of the Coconino Forest trail system, connecting at the back of Buffalo Park. Enjoyed the forests, saw many birds new to me. So quiet, peaceful and beautiful. Easy walking with lower elevation gains. Trails not always well-marked, so take a picture of the trail map at the trailhead.

Didn't know about this park until we drove by. We managed to do a day hike around Beaver creek. It was a pleasant day with beautiful surroundings.

If you are driving from Sedona up to the Grand Canyon you will see this mountain range a lot. It's because to drive past. We don't hike so I can't speak about that.

This HUGE State Park is 1856 million acres in area, and surrounds the towns of Flagstaff and Sedona. Its office headquarters are in Flagstaff. During our sightseeing trips in, and between, these cities, we were driving in some area or the other right in the forest.

The elevation in the forest ranges from 2600 feet to 12633 feet. In its entirety, it contains diverse landscapes, deserts, flat lands, volcanic parks and grand mesas. We visited a few National Parks and Monuments in here, plus the Lowell Observatory, and saw vegetation ranging from desert cacti and wildflowers in the warmer regions to the Ponderosa Pines in the cooler regions at higher altitudes. We were not prepared for the vast temperature differences in cool Flagstaff and warmer Sedona.

While driving from Flagstaff to Sedona on Route 89, which runs through this forest, we were astounded by the constantly changing, breathtaking and magnificent vistas ranging from the verdant green trees and flat plains to the fabulous Red Rocks.

A “Must Visit” if you find yourself in this region.

We were driving from Sedona to Flagstaff and took a route through this forest home and it was amazing. I was not aware that there were these types of lush forests in Arizona, especially so near to the red rocks. It was a beautiful drive full of Ponderosa Pines, switchbacks and we stopped at some amazing lookouts. It was one of the highlights of our trip.
