“Kendrick Park Watchable Wildlife Trail”
Reviewed 26 September 2013

This is a beautiful and mostly-level trail off route 180 about 20-25 miles northwest of Flagstaff. There is a 1/4 mile loop covered in asphalt that is wheel-chair accessible and an additional loop (not paved) making the entire trail 1.5 miles. It is a beautiful setting with lots of Ponderosa Pines and Quaking Aspens beside the trail. Markers give information on local flora and fauna. Although one is walking through forest, on one side is a grassland area. In some areas, one can view nearby mountains. We strolled the 1.5 mile trail on a lovely afternoon (high 60 degrees, not a cloud in the sky.)

One is more likely to see animals in the early morning, so we saw only a few Albert's Squirrels and a caterpillar that afternoon. Other animals you might see include deer, antelope, elk, badgers, coyotes, and many types of birds.

The trail is an easy stroll with no steep areas or rough terrain. One could walk it in about 30 minutes, but if you stop often to listen for birds and other animals or take photos that could stretch to 2 hours. A restroom is located beside the parking lot.

Because of all the rains, this area is green and beautiful. There were many wild flowers - yellow, and white along the side of the road. The drive was amazing. We could here the creek full of water; which, is very different from last year when we practically stood on stones in the creek reviewing how low the creek water was. Tiny snails were out with the light rain. There was miles of tents in the camping areas. It you get a chance to smell the "green" or have been thinking about it, this is the place to be / see.

Breathtaking. A beautiful scenic drive. Curvy in some places. There are places to stay overlooking creeks in the forest.

The higher altitude enables the traveler to enjoy the cool fresh air in the Summer! You can visit Kingman which is a few miles from Flagstaff and still located in Coconino National Forest. Beautiful wooded area's all over!
