Kachina Trail Day Hike
when Sunday, June 4, 2017
where Flagstaff
the hike     The Kachina Trail takes a leisurely route on the south slopes of the San Francisco Peaks through the woods and meadows overlooking Flagstaff. We’ll start from the Kachina Trailhead, walk the trail all the way to the east end, then drop down on the Weatherford Trail to Shultz Tank Trailhead, where our cars will be waiting. 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.
