We live in flagstaff and take every opportunity we can to spend time in the forest. The red rocks, awesome ponderosas and the fishing and wildlife encounters are soul fulfilling (yes, soul). Horseback riding and cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and camping are just some of the activities we enjoy.

We drove over 2 hours from Phoenix to visit Sedona. It was such an incredibly beautiful place. We wanted to hike Soldier Pass, but the parking lot off of Soldier Pass Rd. was very small and full, so we drove to Jordan Rd. where there was more parking. The restroom facility was not good--smelly and no way to wash or sanitize hands. However, we hit the Jordan Trail with the intention to connect to Soldier Pass. We double-backed a few times on the trail because we were not familiar with the area, and the maps / trail markers were not clear. After all that, we ended up not being able to go on Soldier Pass Trail. That aside, the views were beautiful, and we are glad to have had the opportunity to hike the trails. There is a fee for parking there, but we used the Every Kid in a Park pass which is for families with 4th graders and were able to hike for free.

Coconino national Forrest is amazing. From rolling hills, to mountains, fields, it’s the perfect place to take your breath away! Hiking and biking are a must as well, if you wanna get off the road.

We wanted to get an up close and personal hiking experience, but weren't able to do a forced march into the great outdoors. We found and selected the level of hiking we could manage and truly enjoyed our experience. The natural beauty of the area made for some memorable photos!

We traveled thru this forest while travelling to and from the Grand Canyon. It is a very scenic route that is commensurate to the area which will leave you breathless as every turn is a postcard.
