    Route Description for Fort Valley Trail

    The Fort Valley Trail is a great adventure in the Fort Valley area north of Flagstaff, Arizona. This route is shared by hikers and mountain bikers and tends to be in very good condition. There are many, many trails that interconnect in this area, so you could easily spend a whole day adventuring if you wanted to.

    This route sees light traffic, so expect to have a lot of it to yourself. While we rate it as moderate, keep in mind that there’s a longer uphill section that might be tough for very young children, and there’s not much shade, which can make hot days difficult. Bring water! Sturdy boots are also a good idea as parts of the trail are very rocky.

    From the trailhead near the camping area, take the Moto Trail as it weaves its way between creeks and near trees. The route travels northeast, and most of the junctions are well-signed. Enjoy the quiet scenery. The route ends near the junction with the Arizona Trail, but you could easily keep hiking further if you wanted to. When you’re ready, turn around and retrace your steps.
