Arizona: Little Elden Springs Horse Camp|
Posted on Sunday, May 01 @ 00:29:54 CDT by jhallamek
Location: 4.5 Miles North of Flagstaff, AZ on US 89 turn west on 556 Elden Springs Road for 2 miles
One of my favorite spots with plenty of well maintained and traveled trails leading into the San Francisco Peaks trails area. The camp sites are mostly pull through with drinking quality running water strategically placed throughout the campground loop. The toilets are pit type and well maintained. The trails range from easy to strenuous and I recommend proceeding with caution on the trails marked as not recommended for horses. Snow may be present early in the season on some parts of the trails, in some cases covering passages.
