McPherson Park Disc Golf Course

Affectionately known as frolf (a portmanteau of frisbee and golf), this game is just as difficult as throwing a frisbee. The game of disc golf started in the early 1960s and since then it has gained quite a following, enough so to create its own associations. Here in Flagstaff, McPherson Park provides all you need to enjoy a professional game. Here you'll learn the rules and quirky terminology of the sport.

Kachina Trail

Among many western Native American pueblo cultures, the katsina is revered as a spirit that represents any inanimate or animate being in the natural world. The aptly named trail reveals the beauty of nature; it's filled with colorful aspens and pines that traverse the rugged, volcanic landscape. Located at the entrance to the popular Arizona Snowbowl ski area, it's crowded all-year round, however the best time is May through November.

Sunset Crater Volcano National Monument

Located north of Flagstaff near the Wupatki National Monument, this volcano last erupted a little before the Norman Conquest on the other side of the world in 1066. The volcanic eruption scattered ash and black cinder for miles around the area. Serendipitously, the ashen soil allowed subsequent tribes to inhabit the area due to its ability to retain water. Alongside the volcano, visitors can examine fascinating geologic features such as 'Squeeze-ups' and 'Hornitos,' which are bulbous mounds of lava and droplets. Hike along one-mile Lava Flow Trail and discover hidden wonders or climb a nearby cinder cone on the Lennox Crater Trail and enjoy the astounding views. Unfortunately, hiking to the top is prohibited.
