Hike - Fay Canyon (Flagstaff)

  • August 10, 2013 · 8:00 AM

This is a moderate, 5.2 mile (round trip) hike through a scenic canyon southeast of Flagstaff. The trail starts along a dirt road before descending into Fay Canyon, which harbors some lush plant growth and some interesting limestone caves. The trail ends at 2.6 miles, near where the Arizona Trail hits Fisher Point. Expect about a 300 foot elevation change along the trail.
We'll meet at Walmart to carpool, in the side parking lot near the Garden Entrance, about 8am. The turnoff for Fay Canyon is about 4 miles down Lake Mary Rd.

    It was a very nice hike. It would have been much better for me if I had not left the group to head back early by myself because I managed to get lost about 3 times.

      Thanks for your comment. It is always so nice to see you and Becky and this group. The dogs seemed just fne for their evening walk last night, but Leo is dragging a bit today.

    We found a couple stragglers around 11:30ish..... Denise and Ernie wandering the AZ trail! Sent them on towards Day with some electrolytes. Ernie had a couple good looking pups but they were hurting for a drink...GET THOSE DOGS SOME WATER!!!

      Hi Tim, Thanks for your help. I did water the dogs soon after we got back on the Fay Canyon trail. Unfortunately we managed to get lost again and Denise had a hard time with that.

    Shoot! My daughter woke up as I was leaving. Now I am stuck making breakfast :) I would still like to do the hike today, can you tell me more about how to find the trailhead? Is it off Lake Mary Road? Also, is there any water there (for dogs to get in)? Thanks!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
