    Route Description for Rocky Ridge Loop

    The Rocky Ridge Loop is a hike that leads you through the trees at the base of the Dry Lake Hills in Flagstaff. This route mostly shows off the forest, so don’t expect big mountain views, but pick it on a day when you want some fresh air and the trees all around. This trail is also sometimes used by mountain bikers, so keep an eye out and share the trail.

    There are a lot of interconnecting trails in this area, so consider bringing a GPS route or map if you’re unfamiliar with the routes. Sturdy boots are recommended as, true to the name, this trail is rocky.

    From the trailhead, take the Schultz Creek Access Trail to the split. Go right onto the Rocky Ridge Access Trail. Hike uphill to the top of the loop, then head straight through the next two junctions as you head downhill on the Arizona Trail-Rocky Ridge. You’ll turn left onto the Schultz Creek Access Trail to return to the starting point.
