    Route Description for Kendrick Peak Trail

    The Kendrick Peak Trail is a hard, rewarding hike in the Kendrick Mountain Wilderness north of Flagstaff, Arizona. This hike is a bit demanding, but the views from your perch atop Kendrick Mountain are definitely worth the effort. Most of the route travels through the forest until you get to the top of the mountain, where you’ll be impressed at how far your sightline extends.

    Poles and sturdy boots are recommended for this route, although there isn’t any technical climbing involved, and the route is easy enough to follow that offline navigation shouldn’t be required.

    The hike begins from the trailhead on the road. Pass underneath East Newman Hill and then start your switchbacks. You'll ascend through a short canyon, then up the base of Kendrick Peak from west to east. Once you’re on the ridge, you’ll settle into steep, narrow switchbacks to the top. Take some time to enjoy the views, then retrace your steps to the trailhead to finish your adventure.
