Schultz Creek Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"A hike along Schultz Creek, a seasonal stream that skirts the northwest slopes of the Dry Lake Hills."
--Bruce Grubbs, Hiking Northern Arizona (Falcon Guides).
"A cross-country walk along a fine alpine ridge, on San Francisco Mountain in the Kachina Peaks Wilderness. This is probably one of the least climbed peaks in the area, yet the views of San Francisco Mountain and the Dry Lake Hills are excellent. The beautiful alpine meadows, lined with aspen, limber pine, and ponderosa pine are a pleasure to walk through."
"Partly on trail and partly crosscountry, this loop takes you to the summit of 10,083-foot Schultz Peak, the lowest peak of the San Francisco Peaks’ five major peaks, via the historic Weatherford Trail and returns via a cross-country descent with expansive views of the pine-forested Coconino Plateau and the Mogollon Rim. Optionally, you can loop over a higher summit, Doyle Peak. This loop is best hiked clockwise because the climb is more gradual and it simplifies routefinding on the crosscountry portion of the loop."
--Bruce Grubbs, Best Loop Hikes Arizona (The Mountaineers Books).
