“If you like to hike and don’t mind dark places this is a cool spot. Make sure you take a flashlight and something warm to wear. It is both very dark and a cool 50 degrees all year long. ”

“Oak Hill is a simple sledding hill operated by the Kaibab NF. It features a parking lot, outhouse, and a small windbreak shelter. No concessions, no buying sleds, just park and sled. A very popular spot on the weekend in the winter. Only 3 miles down Route 66 to the west from the cottage.”

“Bring a jacket and flashlight for everyone. This is a must see for kids!! Walk one mile into a Lava Tube Cave. Make it exciting and bank around through the left tube back to the beginning. No Fees”

“This is one of my favorite trails in the immediate area around our home. There was a fire in the area in 2017, but it didn't diminish much of the beauty surrounding the trail. It's rated moderate in difficulty, but if you aren't used to the high elevation, it will seem harder. The steep trail is 9.5 miles up and back, with 2680 feet in elevation gain. I do recommend taking at least one hiking pole, as snow and ice can stick around at the top well into the warm months, making some of the switchbacks slippery. Wear good shoes, sunscreen & take plenty of water. https://www.fs.usda.gov/recarea/coconino/recarea/?recid=75208 https://www.alltrails.com/trail/us/arizona/kendrick-mountain-southside”

“For a good but not super challenging day hike, this is a great choice! Not easy, and the views are really beautiful, but not like the Humphrey's Peak hike that I would say is CHALLENGING for most and requires some knowledge and preparation. Kendrick is a little bit of a drive but tends to be less busy, especially on a week day. Still....check weather reports and make good decisions in terms of preparation- food, water, first aid, clothing choices, etc. Let me know if you have any questions. ”

Lake
“Within walking distance from our home, 1 mile walk. Be on the look out for all sorts of wildlife. The North Side of this lake is a bird preserve, so bring the binoculars if you enjoy a little bird watching. Great place for an evening family walk or just a couple out looking for some peace and quiet.”
