This passage’s peaceful traverse of Anderson Mesa from Marshall Lake and along Walnut Canyon belies its proximity to the city of Flagstaff. In the bottom of Sandy’s Canyon, before the Arizona National Scenic Trail (AZT) ascends to the Fisher Point area, you will come to a junction. The left fork, a resupply route for thru-hikers, heads north into Flagstaff (see Passage 33, page 238). The right fork takes Passage 31 northeast and follows the edge of Walnut Canyon after passing Fisher Point (a popular destination for Flagstaff locals). The latter is also the equestrian bypass around Flagstaff.
