Author Full Detail Guide
A collection of loop trails open to multi-use from hiking to biking, to motor bikes. Be aware of that. The trail tracks appear to be mostly tire over foot traffic. These trail link to other popular local hikes and trails.


Much of this area was thinned in 2018 and 2019, and is now very open and sunny.

Located at the base of the San Francisco Peaks, the Fort Valley Trail System was designed primarily for connecting popular mountain biking trails. This system is a multi-use trail to be used by bicycles, hikers, horses and motorcycles. Several sections of the trail were designed by a local biking organization to provide a more challenging ride for the more experienced mountain bike rider. The trail consists of loops that link with the Schultz Creek, Dry Lake Hill and Mt. Elden trail system.

Fort Valley trail is in the Chimney Springs area, just north of Flagstaff. The area has a gradual sloping terrain that consists of several shallow canyons and sweeping views of the San Francisco Peaks. Ponderosa pine and Gambel oak trees are the primary type of vegetation with New Mexico locust and an occasional hedgehog cactus.
