It doesn't look like anyone has recently written up a trip log on this beautiful loop hike beneath the north slopes of Humphrey's Peak. I did the loop in a clockwise direction which means you go up the Bear Jaw Trail and down the Abineau. I thought going up Bear Jaw was tough enough - not sure I would even want to tackle going up the Abineau. It was one of those days when it was projected to be in the high teens temperature-wise in Phoenix and I had a reason to be in Flagstaff so decided to take in a nice hike. I was totally rewarded. Temp at start was maybe in the low 80's. Still not bad considering the alternatives in AZ this time of year. I encountered only four other hikers after starting my hike around 2pm. I even had to cross a field of snow at one point on the trail plus some thunder and brief showers that cooled the air into the low 60's at completion. I agree with everyone that this could be one of the top hikes in AZ for a view, trees, cool weather and challenging while not a killing hike. The sign-in book at the point in the trail where the Bear Jaw and Abineau trails intersect showed a lot of activity each day, so clearly this is a popular hike and every reason to be so. I love Arizona!
