Coconino National Forest
Many travelers are surprised to learn that the world's largest contiguous ponderosa pine forest blankets the mountains of Flagstaff in Northern Arizona. Aromatic treetops brush the endless blue sky just outside of town, but this panoramic portrait is more than just breathtaking scenery for hikers, climbers and other outdoor enthusiasts; it's home to wildlife including the black bear and American bald eagle. Explore elevations of up to 12,633 feet and watch the fauna change from cactus to alpine tundra along the way. Visitors are invited to phone the supervisor's office for information that may be helpful in planning a trip.
I have to honestly say that coconino national forest was the epicenter of my adult life! my father and i decided to leave iowa and go on a "father and son journey" we ended up in flagstaff arizona. the beautiful landscapes and atmosphere literally changed my life! It was as if i had a spiritual experience! We came to flagstaff looking for a campground and asked the local neighbors what they would recommend. They told us of a camp spot in Coconino national forest. When we got there I was Shocked! i had never seen a place of such beauty! I recommend this destination for anyone who is looking for a great outdoors get away or if you would like to experience the true beauty of life itself!!!!!
The trail located off SR 89A approx. 10 miles from Sedona, AZ. This is a must for anyone with a love & taste for nature's beauty. Go early and enjoy the sites along the way. The trail is a total of 3 miles. The National Forest personnel have really taken care of this site.
Close enough to civilization to make you feel safe, yet far enough away to escape it. Camping in the Coconino was by far the best camping in Northern Arizona. Highly recommended for those who enjoy the outdoors, and the mountain desert. The nominal park fee is more than worth it to see the breathtaking scenery and wildlife. Fantastic! Our family will return for years to come.
