Located on Switzer Mesa, this popular, easy walk is part of the Flagstaff Urban Trail System. The scattered pine forest and open meadows give this place a special feeling. The spaciousness is enhanced by the great views of San Francisco Mountain, the Dry Lake Hills, and Elden Mountain. In the late 1980s, the park narrowly escaped having a major road built through it, but that proposal was soundly rejected by a citizen’s initiative—proving that the people of Flagstaff greatly value and appreciate the remarkable views and serenity of this elevated mesa within the city.
