    Beautiful wooded trail with a couple of nice vistas. There are definitely some steep spots, and a fairly long stretch with loose gravel and a steep pitch that is a little tedious to navigate. Definitely would recommend.

Flg-Abineau-Bear Jaw; 7.8; 1800' up
Kachina Peaks Wilderness; Abineau-Bear Jaw Loop. 7.8 miles with an elevation gain of 1800', producing an ERM (Energy Required Miles) hike of 15. Drive to just North of MP 235 on hwy 180; then 1.6 on FR 151; 3.1 on FR 418; .05 on FR 9123J to the Abineau-Bear Jaw TH. I suggest hiking up Abineau and down Bear Jaw because Abineau is basically an active avalanche chute, and steep. You top out about 10,300' with views of the flank of Humphreys Peak. Then one lilts down the Waterline Trail to meet the Bear Jaw, which drops steeply, littered with plentiful rocks before it levels out on abandoned old forest roads to close the loop. Julius Aubineau (1852-1903) was mayor of Flagstaff from 1892 to 1898 during the rough-and-tumble fight to wrest town water rights from the railroad. When he wasn’t mayoring, Aubineau ran a saloon.
