I start out at the Marshal lake TH, which looks like a marsh now. This hike goes north to I-40. I was surprised that as I traveled down the trail, I was dropping elevation. After about 5 miles, I came along to the Sandy Canyon Trail. There was a lot of people at this point. There's a campground about a mile and a half away. This AZT section has a loop/by pass. You can hike through Flagstaff on the Urban trails or hike by the Walnut Canyon national monument. At some point both trails meet up north of I-40. I hit the intersection and went towards the urban trails. There was a bunch of people mountain biking along the way. As I got closer, I saw the effects of the Hardy fire. All of the ground was scorched and the trees were blackened. I made to the I-40 underpass and went back to the trail split. I then went to the Fisher Point for some pictures. I then returned back to the trailhead. The temps were very cool for the most part of the day. At times I was almost chilly.
