    Route Description for Soldier Trail and Bridge Trail Loop

    The Soldier Trail and Bridge Trail Loop is a scenic, moderately difficult hiking and running route north of Flagstaff. This route doesn’t deliver huge views, but being in the forest here is quite spectacular and the route doesn’t get too busy. Try to time your hike for when the leaves are turning colors in the fall or for when the wildflowers are at their peak in the summertime.

    The signage on this hike leaves a bit to be desired, especially at the beginning of the hike. A downloaded GPS route can help you find the way. You might need GPS help to locate the trailhead, too.

    From the trailhead, head west along the road and then take a left at the fork. Meander south on Bridge Trail past the campground. Where Soldier Trail intersects, take a right to head up the far side of the loop. Follow this trail all the way back to the original loop split, then retrace your steps to the trailhead.
