No need for a new thread.
I'm look for new areas that are Not
The San Francisco Peaks, or around Flagstaff, and preferably not more than 2 to 3 hours from the Valley. Also, car accessible. Also, I'm not going to the White Mts, or Jacob Lake. Those are not within my drive radius.
The Mogollon Rim is about it. Aside from the Babe Haught to Knoll Lake route popularized in 2016 [ Babe Haught Trail - Hatchery to Knoll Lake ]
, which certainly appears promising, are there other areas that are recommended? I had considered parking on the side of HWY 87 and hiking to Baker Butte, and maybe the Rim itself, for a view. I should point out that I would want to have views along the Rim, so Clint's Wells is probably not great.
Added 01/23/2020: The Meadow Trail,= #505
, access from SR 260 [ Meadow Trail #505 ]
is another possible snowshoe hike.
If you're having trail problems I feel bad for you son, I got 99 problems but hiking ain't one.
