    To Snake Gulch Trailhead
    From Flagstaff, head north on US89 to Bitter Springs. Make a left onto US89A. Follow US89A to Jacob Lake. Turn left onto Highway 67, and then make the first dirt right turn onto FR461. Follow 461, keep left at the Y at the top of the hill. After descending the switchbacks (icy during the winter), merge onto FR462, still heading west. When 462 ends at FR22 (the winter alternate for 461/462), make a left. The pavement ends shortly after getting onto 22. After a sharp horseshoe turn, the road straightens out. Turn right on the first dirt road after the horseshoe (by the horse corral). Follow the road, and keep to the right, until it dead-ends at the trailhead.
