Slate Mountain

Slate Mountain

Though this trail has a humble beginning at an old roadblock, it quickly reveals itself to be one of the Coconino National Forest’s premier day hikes. Actually an old jeep track, now used solely as a foot trail, this 2.4 mile climb is a gradual but steady ascent along a wide gravel track to some of the best views on the forest. Interpretive signs along the way add a bit of educational interest by naming trailside species of trees and shrubs.

Near the top of the climb, the path spirals up the mountain’s narrow summit like a stripe up a barber pole. The effect is as if you were riding past some of the Forest’s most spectacular scenery on a huge lazy Susan. The San Francisco Peaks, Kendrick Mountain, Red Mountain, the Grand Canyon, Painted Desert, you can see them all, just by turning your head, from the top of Slate Mountain.
