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. 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.
