Soldiers Trail Day Hike
when Saturday, August 22, 2020
where Flagstaff
the hike     The Soldiers Trail makes a meandering loop through the Ponderosa Pine forest southwest of Flagstaff. There are a few hills but no big climbs.
    Those preferring a longer hike can add some more miles, with Micheal Humphrey as deputy leader. For persons wanting more hiking, a group will do the Soldiers Trail until we get to the Flagstaff Loop Trail. We will take that to the Rogers Trail and after we have added enough hiking to make the total 8-10 miles we will turn around and complete the rest of the Soldiers Loop Trail.
    The trail is named for soldiers who served at Fort Tuthill, which began as a military base.
