KENDRICK PARK

KENDRICK PARK Coconino National Forest One of the best places in the world to see Long-tailed weasels poking around in abandoned potato fields, the Kendrick Park Watchable Wildlife Trail is as much an educational experience as it is a fun hike. Two loop trails guide visitors through shaded glens that bump up against expansive plains full of foraging beasts and swooping raptors. Interpretive signs along the trails provide a substantial dose of learnin’ about the resident flora and fauna, while handy restrooms and paved access roads earn points in the family-friendly category. HIGHLIGHTS: accessible, short hiking trails with educational signage LENGTH: 1.5-mile and .25-mile loops RATING: easy/accessible ELEVATION: 7,900 feet DRIVING DISTANCE FROM PHOENIX: 166 miles one-way GETTING THERE: From Flagstaff, go north on Highway 180 for 20 miles. The trailhead is located between mileposts 235 and 236 on the west side of the road. INFORMATION: 520-526-0866 fs.fed.us/r3/coconino/recreation/peaks/kendrick-watchable.shtml
