I had never done this hike, and I figured that heading up to Flagstaff was a good excuse to get out of the heat of the VOS, so Tracie, my intrepid hiking partner, and I headed north.

The trail is an incline of about 600' per mile all the way to the top. However, it was an easy trail to hike since it was mostly smooth dirt and there are lots of switchbacks. After dealing with lots of deadfall last week on the West Baldy Trail and the Escudilla National Trail, it was nice to hike without having to go over, under, or around fallen trees.

As for wildlife, we saw 3 antelope while driving on the gravel roads to the trailhead, and we saw 2 elk on the first portion of the hike.

The fire tower atop Kendrick Peak was unmanned, which I found a bit surprising given the extremely dry conditions in the area.

There were some nice views along the way and at the top, and there were some pockets of snow to be seen on Humphreys Peak.
