The San Francisco Peaks offer a handful of trails from which to choose and as the State's high point, this is the best place to "cool it" in the form of a delightful adventure. I've hiked here in all seasons. It is beautiful any time of year. The snow in winter and the colors of autumn make this a truly enchanted place. The Kachina Trail on the south is level and meanders through stands of mixed conifer and aspen. The Weatherford segment on the east is a steady climb to nearly 12,000 feet from 9,000 feet. Much of this route follows an old road made for Model T's. Its gradual slope is a favored route for training high altitude runners. The summit trail below the saddle overlooking the Inner Basin is steep and rocky.
