Kendrick Mountain offers some of the finest views in northern Arizona . A well maintained trail with switch backs winds its way through Ponderosa pines and as we ascend we pass through areas or Doulas Fir, Aspens, spruce and other varieties of trees and vegetation. Just shy of the summit we pass through a meadow with an old cabin built in the early 1900’s which was occupied by the fire lookouts and a bit further along at the summit is the lookout tower. From here we can see the North Rim of the Grand Canyon and the Vermilion Cliffs to the north and there are great views in all directions. This hike offers great scenery and cool, sweet smelling air as we trek along. A good hike as the summer begins to wind down.
Kendrick Mountain is located in the Kaibab National Forest and car camping is an option for those who wish.
Please contact Bob beforehand if you plan to camp.
When climbing in the high country, always be prepared with umbrella/rain jacket & hat.
