Flg Humphreys Pk, 10 mi, 3300'
Up to 12,633'. 3300 feet of elevation gain. 10 miles, round trip. ERM (Energy Required Miles) of 23. Rocks and tree roots make travel slow, it's not a "normal" trail. (That is, it is difficult.) The whole range of peak is properly referred to as San Francisco Mountain. It's a stratovolcano. The trail begins at the Arizona Snowbowl ski resort intrusion in the Coconino National Forest. Humphreys Peak was named in about 1870 for General Andrew A. Humphreys, a U.S. Army officer who was a Union general during the American Civil War, and who later became Chief of Engineers of the United States Army Corps of Engineers.
