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.Plan to see San Francisco Peaks and other attractions that appeal to you using our Flagstaff road trip tool.

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

The San Francisco Peaks near Flagstaff is a great place to hike and bike and sometime crosscountry ski if the snow comes. You may see deer, elk, or turkey but in recent years the forest fires are bigger and more intense and climate hasn't helped and if you are a climate change denier I grew up there and it doesn't snow like it did when I was a kid. See it while you can.
Snow Bowl, lots of pine trees, and highest peak in the state of AZ. Hike it!!
