Fort Valley Trail System

Monday, May 13, 2019

Alt Names

Coconino National Forest, Flagstaff Ranger District, San Francisco Peaks, Chimney Springs, Schultz Creek, Dry Lake Hill, Mt. Elden, Devils Head

Last Known StatusOpen

This part of the Coconino National Forest offers about 20 miles of nicely maintained multiple use single track trails that form both short and long loops with gradual elevation changes and scenic mountain views. Most of the terrain is a nice mix of loose soil, narrow switchbacks and a few rocky sections.

The trails are open year-round but the best time to visit is around March through mid December. Please note that this trail system is also open to hikers, horseback riding and mountain bikes. Camping and campfires are not permitted.
