San Francisco Peaks Information
Flagstaff, Arizona is located at the southern base of the majestic San Francisco Peaks, a massive dormant volcano that contains Humphreys Peak, the state’s highest peak. The series of peaks around the explosive mountain dominate the landscape for dozens of miles in any direction. They attract all kinds of outdoor enthusiasts in many different areas. The highest peaks are often explored through hiking, while the northern area to the north of the peaks is often seldom seen. The Arizona Trail fortunately passes through on its way to Babbitt Ranch, giving thru-hikers a glimpse into a cinder cone-filled area that few ever bother to explore.
