Snow hiking north of flagstaff

Headed to flagstaff this weekend. I will be getting there early morning. Was hoping to get some good snowshoeing in. I know of the Nordic center but is there anywhere else, was considering the east end of kachina headed uphill but not sure if it’s accessible.....

Thoughts?
