I went to Buffalo Park to see San Francisco Peaks.There are several trails with all colors of wild flowers. The trails are covered in small volcanic rocks. You can occasionally find small cactus.
If you walk up to the peaks, you'll see that they are surrounded by huge boulders. They look amazing because of their size.I stayed for about three and a half hours. I would definitely like to go back.

The peaks and surrounding scenery is very pretty and easily viewed on the way to the Wupatki National Monument.

The San Francisco Peaks are part of the National Forest and can be seen just about any trip one takes north or west of Flagstaff.

If you take the loop road tour,, you will see these beautiful "peaks" along with so much more. Highly recommend if you are in the area. Plan to spend 2-3 hrs there as so much to see.

We drove over these peaks four times during our stay in Flagstaff and I did find a nice hiking trail on the Arizona snowbowl. The temps were very pleasant and perfect for hiking.

Our airbnb faces the San Francisco peaks so we are enjoying this view on a daily basis but the drive to the top - snowbowl, was incredible! The tall aspen and pine trees are just breathtaking! Of course there is still plenty to snow so use caution on the drive

Great photo ops from all around the greater Flagstaff area. You can hike up to many of the peaks or, at least, to a saddle or around. They are volcanic in origin and span many different life zones. Humphrey's is the highest at just over 12,600. If you want to hike contact the local U.S. Forest Service office on route 89 across from the mall. The downtown visitor center might also help. So can the local Babbitt and REI stores. Watch the weather, though. Avoid the rain. Definitely a no go in the deeper snow.

BEAUTIFUL RANGE OF MOUNTAINS.
Flagstaff is a college town. so it feels young and vibrate. Skiing will be exciting, if, there is snow. SW
MTNS often have late snows, so, check ski and weather reports. Summer offers lots of camping and
National Parks with fishing and hunting (see seasons and laws). On I-17 with a scenic short drive to Phoenix.
Can be very cold so, layers, layers, layers of clothes.
