Inner Basin Trail

Inner Basin Trail

Inner Basin Trail is one of my all time favorites! With miles and miles of an aspen forest this trail feels like magic with every step. October is the best time to go, due to the color change of the leaves. The trail is about 4 miles round trip and is a nice incline within the trees.

To get there…

From Flagstaff, go north on U.S. Route 89 for 12 miles and, just past the Sunset Crater entrance, turn left onto Forest Road 420. Continue on the dirt road and follow the signs to Lockett Meadow Campground; the trailhead is well-marked. Enjoy the trail till you hit the open meadow at the top of the mountain!
