This is an easy hike along the base of the Dry Lake Hills. The trail faces south and dries out earlier in the spring than the other trails in the Dry Lake Hills-Elden Mountain trail system. Access is quick from Flagstaff. This is a good hike when you do not have much time. Walk through the gate, then down an unmaintained dirt road to the right (northeast) for about 0.1 mile to the signed trailhead. Go right (east) on the Rocky Ridge Trail and follow it up a gentle slope. The trail stays below the steep south slope of the Dry Lake Hills. It climbs gradually through open ponderosa pine and oak forest, and eventually turns more to the north as it enters the canyon between the Dry Lake Hills and Elden Mountain.
