Mormon Lake is an optimum destination for a quick, easy, scenic loop through some of Flagstaff ’s best outdoor country. This area is long on scenery but short on facilities. Numerous campgrounds dot the countryside, but wise travelers will carry picnic hampers filled with lunch goodies. You won’t find any fast food here, unless, of course, you are especially quick with hook and bait. What you will find, however, is serenity—ponderosa pines trimming lush meadows, backed up by a panorama of the San Francisco Peaks. This chapter from the DayTrips series describes many fascinating, exciting, (and many free of charge) things to do, most within a two-hour drive of Flagstaff. Each Day Trip includes destination highlights, places to visit along the way, choice restaurants and lodging, and shopping.
