We drove up 180 to the Grand Canyon--through twists and turns and when Humphrey's Peak came into view as a regal snow topped mountain--we caught our breathe. It was a beautiful scene on the horizon.

The trail up Humphreys peak is great. If you are a hiker like me, you will appreciate the wideness and that there is relativly "no traffic jams" up this trail.

We hiked to the summit of Humphrey's Peak in late October. It was fantastic. The views are amazing, the trail is well-marked, and there's summit register on top. Totally worth the effort.

Consider a hike up the sides of the San Franciso Peaks. HUmphrey's is tallest summit and then reflect upon the fact that all on which you stand and see as part of the peaks was a supervolcano. The middle of the peaks is the ancient...More

There are National Forests around the base. last I knew of you don't need a permit. Check in with the Coconino NF folks or the local outfitter to be sure.

I don't think the snow lifts operates in the summer. And I know the lifts don't go up to Mt. Humphrey. You might get thunderstorms in July so just check the weather before you go on a long hike. Hope this helps.
