Overview
Philomena Spring from AZT #34 is a 2.75 mile one way hike with 2,726 feet accumulated elevation gain. Located 11 miles north-northwest of Flagstaff Arizona. July and June are the best months to enjoy this hike. This hike involes off trail navigation. Review triplogs, photos and the route to understand the terrain before heading out.


We started at the Aspen Loop to "AZT#34 - San Francisco Peaks". Start off trail by the "Snowmobiles forbidden in the Wilderness" sign. Follows an old, barely visible (in spots), 2 track until it reaches the woods and starts climbing. In the woods, the route is cairned and gets considerable Game traffic. Follow cairnes to the end, or do like we did, follow to the metal pipe and follow to the spring. First stop is an old wooden water catchment. Then up the scree SE to the water catchment (.2 miles) away and the end of the pipe. Actual Spring is 100' to the NE of the Catchment
