Beautiful area to hike, explore caves. We spent several days hiking throughout the forest and saw few people. Perfect weather and beautiful scenery.

A big and nice park, different kind of terrain. You see part of it while driving from Flagstaff to Grand Canyon. There are also hiking paths and camping sites.

The park is well maintained and there are a number of places to stop and enjoy the park. Be patient as you drive through. Narrow road with slow traffic.

You drive through this area when traveling to/from the Grand Canyon/Flagstaff area etc. The scenery is almost endless as sights appear on every curve and hill. A few you can stop at or stop at overlooks etc. Beautiful area.

Are there any red rocks within 5 miles of the city of Flagstaff? If not red rocks, then any particular scenic walking trails easily accessible from a main road? We will be without a car and will only have ~4 hours of daylight while in town. Anywhere we can go by Uber? Thanks.

What is the best general time to view the changing colors of the trees. I'll be driving from Phoenix and will only have one weekend to spare, so I'm trying to get as close to the colors as possible. Any help is greatly appreciated!

I haven't been there in the fall, but I would recommend that you look at the US forest service website where there is a phone number to call.
