High Point

A classic XC / Trail ride in Flagstaff. Nothing too challenging but lots of fun and many great view. The milage can be deceiving; expect the ride to take a bit longer than you might think. The trail network on the south side of Elden is very convoluted and can be hard to navigate if you are unfamiliar so be prepared.

Beautiful! We were horseback riding. Dry although there were storm clouds just over the mountain. Lots of loose rocks and approximately 0.5 mi to the saddle between Fremont Peak and Doyle Peak there was a large tree downed which prevented us from making the saddle. Easily traversable by hikers, not safe for equestrians
