Elden Mountain Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"The first half of this passage skirts the Turkey Hills and crosses the Rio de Flag near Elden Pueblo. The second half is part of the Elden Mountain Trail System and follows the base of Little Elden Mountain on its way up to Schultz Pass. This passage is known as the equestrian bypass because it is used by horseback riders to avoid traveling through the city of Flagstaff.
If you’re in need of resupply or simply interested in seeing a little bit of Arizona’s most famous mountain town, you may wish to use the Flagstaff passage (33) instead. But if you’re more interested in maintaining the wilderness experience of the Arizona National Scenic Trail (AZT) than in playing around downtown Flagstaff, this is the passage for you."
