    Kaibab FS Reports

    The trail provides visitors to Dogtown Lake with an interesting, scenic day hike to the top of Davenport Hill and back. The higher elevation of the hill ( 7805 feet) and the northern exposure of the trail provide hikers with a cool climatic change and also a change in vegetation from ponderosa pine to Douglas fir/white fir and oak near the summit. From the trail, you can enjoy scenic views of Dogtown Lake and the country around Williams.

    Trail Layout: The trail follows Dogtown Wash about 0.3 mile and then climbs to a flat, where it follows an old logging road before turning north toward Davenport Hill. The trail ascends the hill at a gradual 8% grade to the top. Follow the same trail back to the start.

    Length: 2.5 miles one-way

    Hiking Time: About 2 hours round trip.

    Rating: Moderate

    Trailhead Location: The Davenport Hill Trail begins at the east end of the Ponderosa Trail.

    Recommended Season: Spring to early fall.

    Use Restrictions: No motorized vehicles. Trail designed for day hikers, not recommended for horses.
