This is a hike through an alpine forest in the San Francisco Peaks to a large avalanche path on the southeast face of Humphrey's peak. The trail into the heart of the ancient volcano begins in beautiful Lockett Meadow. From this island of emerald ringed with aspens and high peaks it follows a primitive road into the mountain's now quiet Inner Basin and then connects to the Weatherford trail. The Inner Basin is the middle of the crater of San Francisco Mountain, Arizona's only Stratovolcano. The hike in is a steady but easy climb the whole way. Thick forests surround you. The forest is a mix of fir trees and aspens. The ground is covered in ferns and grass.
