Consist of several looping trails. Page data reflects the all the loops. Adjust mileage accordingly when posting triplogs.

Campbell Mesa trail is located on a low and relatively flat mesa just east of the County Club area of Flagstaff, AZ. The trail consists of five loops of varying sizes. At the south end of the southern-most loop there is a half mile connector trail to access the Arizona Trail. All five loops of Campbell Mesa trail are interconnected and can be accessed from the Campbell Mesa trailhead.

As you depart from the trailhead you enter large stands of Ponderosa Pine trees. This area also supports old growth trees and Gambel Oaks. The trail also features many scenic views of Mt. Elden as well as the chance to see elk, deer and coyotes.

Campbell Mesa is within a non-motorized use area that aims to provide solitude for the visitors and shelter for the wildlife.

    WARNING! Hiking and outdoor related sports can be dangerous. Be responsible and prepare for the trip. Study the area you are entering and plan accordingly. Dress for the current and unexpected weather changes. Take plenty of water. Never go alone. Make an itinerary with your plan(s), route(s), destination(s) and expected return time. Give your itinerary to trusted family and/or friends.
