#7 of 15 in Nature in Flagstaff
The San Francisco Peaks are a volcanic mountain range in north central Arizona, just north of Flagstaff and a remnant of the former San Francisco Mountain. The highest summit in the range, Humphreys Peak, is the highest point in the state of Arizona at 12633ft in elevation. The San Francisco Peaks are the remains of an eroded stratovolcano. An aquifer within the caldera supplies much of Flagstaff's water while the mountain itself is in the Coconino National Forest, a popular recreation site. The Arizona Snowbowl ski area is on the western slopes of Humphreys Peak, and has been the subject of major controversy involving several tribes and environmental groups.
The six highest individual peaks in Arizona are contained in the range: Humphreys Peak, 12633ftAgassiz Peak, 12356ftFremont Peak, 11969ft Aubineau Peak, 11838ft Rees Peak, 11474ftDoyle Peak, 11460ft
The mountain provides a number of recreational opportunities, including wintertime snow skiing and hiking the rest of the year. Hart Prairie is a popular hiking area and Nature Conservancy preserve located below the mountain's ski resort, Arizona Snowbowl.

  • 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.  more »
  • On our Arizona Road Trip we enjoyed the views of the peaks on US 89 and I-40 ... really added a great back drop while driving  more »

  • One of the most beautiful places in America if not the world, the lucky people of flagstaff should be proud to live in such a beautiful place!
  • I took a morning to summit Humphreys Peak. A very fun and moderately strenuous hike! I'd do it again.
