Arizona Trailblazers Hiking Club
Kachina Trail Day Hike
Saturday, July 21, 2018
The Kachina Trail takes a leisurely route on the south slopes of the
San Francisco Peaks through the woods and meadows overlooking Flagstaff.
The hike starts in a forest of fir, spruce, and aspen, through meadows of
flowers, past basalt cliffs at 1.5 miles, and a cave, with a very good
chance we will see and hear lots of wildlife: butterflies, birds,
squirrels, elk, jays, and others.
We’ll hike out about five miles (probably to the Weatherford Trail
junction) then turn around and hike back. Those wishing a shorter hike
can turn around earlier.
We will be stopping for “refreshments” and dinner after
the hike. Please carpool accordingly.
