No matter where you travel within at least 50 miles you see this mountain. The mountains name is Mount Humphrey's.

A lovely drive from Flagstaff through a beautiful forest. Be aware of great elevation change from 6800 ft above sea level to almost 10,000 and higher if you hike one of the many trails. Not for the faint hearted. There are outlooks and spectacular views....More

Had no idea Arizona had mountains prior to this! Very cool to see from Flagstaff and many roads/trails around to see different sides from the vehicle. Did not hike, but many do and would be beautiful. Snow at times, especially this time of year.

This is to me the Most Beautiful Mountain in Arizona. Don't let the burn marks drive you away, this is still a must see

The Peaks are a great place to hike. Lots of trails on either the west or east side. Skiing is fine when there is snow!!!

Racing up on I-17, by on I-40, or on US 180 or 89 up to or back from the Grand Canyon, you may be mightily impressed by the profile of Arizona's highest peaks, but then think nothing more of it. That would be a mistake....More

especially if you just want to drive up the mountain when the seasons are passing through to see the trees changing colors. Or, if you have an off-roading vehicle and some serious courage there are some off the beat trails all around them that lead...More

On the way back from the grand canyon took the scenic route to flagstaff and had the drive of your life. Scenery is breath taking, you are away from the interstate and you can get out and breathe in the mountain air. If you have...More

Definitely take the chair lift to the top. Take a sweater as it will be 10 degrees colder or more on the top. It will be a 30 mon. ride up and 30 min. ride back.

Not sure if you are asking about the time of day or the time of year, so I'll answer both. Time of day would be early to mid morning, or later in the afternoon. Keep in mind that you are at 7,000 elevation, so unless you... More
