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.

San Francisco Peaks reviews
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.
