Foregoing the high alpine terrain of the San Francisco Peaks in favor of old-growth forests that typify the range’s middle elevations, the Kachina Trail descends easily from the Snowbowl ski area to a trailhead north of Schultz Pass. Because this trailhead is accessed by a rough road, however, this hike description tacks on a couple of extra miles by following the Weatherford Trail to Schultz Pass itself, which is accessed by a much better forest road.
