Flagstaff, AZ

Woody Mountain Road

This dirt road springing from the southwest corner of the city is a hidden gem, particularly beloved because it is plowed in wintery weather (unlike the FUTS paths). With rolling hills and a packed dirt surface, this rarely-traveled road spans some 32 miles. Easy parking for an out and back can be found at the Arboretum at Flagstaff. From here, the road runs southwest through open range, ending at the edge of the Mogollon Rim which overlooks Sedona. The road also connects to great trails at the Rogers Lake County Natural Area.

Note: The Arboretum is closed in winter.
