This event has been canceled.

Hike has been postponed until fall and will be included as part of a 4X4 run.

We will carpool to the Kelsey Spring trailhead located 24.1 miles SW of central Flagstaff. A high clearance vehicle may be needed for the final 1.8 miles. From the Kelsey trailhead you immediately descend into a shady forested canyon of Ponderosa pine mixed with douglas fir, gambel oak and juniper trees. Most of the length of the trail is gradual up and down with only a few short steep areas. We may decide to additionally visit Kelsey Spring, Dorsey Spring or the cabin at Winter Cabin Spring. There are many spectacular panoramic views of Sycamore Canyon as you hike along the trail. Expect to stop for lunch & libations at Flagstaff’s La Fonda Mexican Restaurant afterward.
