Hochderffer Hills is a 0.9 mile one way hike. Located 14 miles north-northwest of Flagstaff Arizona. June and August are the best months to enjoy this hike.

I decided to approach this hike from the Southwest side of Hochderffer Hills. From Fire Road 151E, GPS Coordinates 35.36883 -111.76559 start the bushwhack up the side of the mountain following the ridge line as much as possible. The heading is east by southeast. After your initial ascent the hike levels out considerably. You will eventually reach a fence line that you can follow almost to the summit. The entire hike is covered by pines with little exposure.

Check out the Official Route.

    To hike
    From HWY 180 turn right and head east on Fire Road 151 for about 0.4 miles. On the left at 0.4 miles is Fire Road 151E. There is a sign at the entrance indicating the gate may be locked. If open proceed on 151E to a barbed wire second gate. There is a sign at this gate indicting the road is not maintained for passenger vehicles (which is true). Proceed through the gate and drive along 151E for about 2.3 miles to a fork in the road - GPS Coordinates 35.36883 -111.76559 - where you can park and start the hike.
