Sinclair Wash Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"This is a day hike on a Flagstaff Urban Trail, with easy access for walkers without a vehicle. This is another trail in the Flagstaff Urban Trail System. The trail crosses Milton Road and stays on the north side of McConnell Drive as it follows Sinclair Wash downstream onto the university campus. After a couple of blocks the trail moves farther away from the street as it winds in and out of small drainages. After crossing south San Francisco Street, it continues down Sinclair Wash around a subdivision. The Lonetree Road crossing is somewhat confusing; just remember that the trail follows the wash. A few yards downstream, Sinclair Wash ends as it joins the Rio de Flag. The trail continues another mile downstream before ending at the I-40 overpass."
