Flagstaff rises above the desert that dominates much of Arizona's landscape. The peaks that surround the city are often snow-covered, and lush green forests carpet the high plateau upon which the community sits. These peaks and forests also harbor many fine trails, the best of which are described in Best Easy Day Hikes Flagstaff. From the colorful slopes of San Francisco Mountain to the scenic rim of Walnut Canyon, hiking around Flagstaff proves the desert is a kaleidoscope of beautiful terrain. Veteran hiker Bruce Grubbs has described 20 of Flagstaff's wonderful trails in this guidebook. Each route is documented with clear descriptions and easy-to-follow maps.
