Roger's Lake Loop
by cw50must

Likely In-Season!
Roger's Lake
Rogers Lake, its basin spanning over one mile across, is located in the Upper Verde watershed and is a regionally significant, high-elevation wetland important to numerous wildlife species. In 2010, Coconino County aquired the land of Roger's lake, and nearby land at the base of woody mountain and it is now known as the Rogers Lake County Natural Area.


Trail
There are two small trailheads with parking areas off Woody Mountain Road for the natural area, to access two multi-use trails.

2-Spot Trail is a loop trail that connects both trailheads along the shore of the lake (note lake is dry depending on time of year) The upper part of the loop runs along the base of Woody Mountain. The trail and both trail heads are well marked. The trail also connects to the longer Gold Digger trail that goes further up Woody Mountain. The trail is multi-use.

The lower part of the loop is supposed to be excellent for wildlife viewing and also provides views of the San Francisco Peaks.

Gold Digger - Two Spot - Woody LO Loop
Never gave this area west of the 89A turnoff much thought. Which is practically a suburb of Flagstaff. [ SW of Flagstaff Loop Trail :: map ]

Two Spot Trail
After a quick 0.35 miles up hang a left on Gold Digger Trail.

Scenic Lookout
Interesting 300 foot trail exactly 1 mile up Gold Digger. The lookout is scenic and a military grade bench to boot. More thought and $$ invested than remotely expected.

Aspen Grove Ramada
Odd to stumble upon this modern and well built structure. Woody Mountain road is 315 feet away but there isn't a use trail to connect and that road rarely gets used. Bruce pondered some ol' gold digger club being involved.

Woody Lookout - 1.9 mi RT
Worthy little destination once 1.5 miles up Gold Digger. Once again something isn't kosher in Coconino. Nice modern deadbolted outhouse for the lookout is vented for a burrito club. Whereas Kendrick 18 miles NNW has been stinking for a decade. The western two thirds of Kendrick is Kaibab NF, perhaps that explains.

Two Spot Trail
After an easy 2.4 miles down Gold Digger we strolled just over a mile on Two Spot. Roger's Lake was dry. Looks 4-20 feet deep is the limit of this oversized pond. Intense interpretive signs, plaques and displays at the trailhead.

Synopsis
Big pine hikes are fun. A great low key option for someone getting into hiking or interested in a forest hike. The gold diggers certainly left a mark. Someone loves(d) this area and it shows. If you hike for likes this isn't for you.

Permit $$
None
