From the Red Rocks of Sedona to the San Francisco Peaks high above Flagstaff, the Coconino National Forest is a treasure trove of Arizona's most scenic places. It also spans a highly diverse set of landscapes including desert, the nation's largest contiguous ponderosa pine forest, and Arizona's only alpine tundra. Recreational opportunities are plentiful in the over 1.8 million acres of forest.
This national forest contains some of the most popular trails in Arizona. Devil's Bridge Trail near Sedona leads to a gigantic natural sandstone arch that you've likely seen on Instagram. The 45 miles of trail in Sycamore Canyon travel through Arizona's second largest canyon. Humphreys Peak Trail climbs to the top of the tallest mountain in Arizona.
