Arizona Trip Itineraries

The Mountain Bikers' Adventure

Destination(s): Flagstaff

Spend five days exploring mountain biking trails in Flagstaff. The National Forest is known for a maze of single-tracks and the suggestions on this guide may well be switched out for the trails you discover during your visit. The trails in this trip are chosen for their varieties of terrain and all but one are located just north of town, except for the Sycamore Rim trail. The Sycamore Rim is almost 30 miles west of Flagstaff just by the charming old town Williams, so you may opt to stay there for a night. All-in-all, this itinerary is just a start to the mountain bike options in Flag. Stop by the Pay-and-take, a bar downtown (on Aspen, across from the Orpheum theater), to find the biking crowd and ask for more suggestions. read more about The Mountain Bikers' Adventure

One block north of historic Route 66, towering over the corner of Aspen & San Francisco, the Hotel Monte Vista has been a downtown Flagstaff touchstone for decades. Built in 1927 by a citizen's initiative to bring tourist-class amenities to town, the hotel has hosted Hollywood luminaries, rock legends, and according to some guests, an assorted cast of ghosts that haunt the halls and keep things interesting. The Hotel Monte Vista has 50 rooms and suites on four floors, many offering great views of Flagstaff. Although by no means swanky, the hotel has a comfortable vintage vibe and offers a great location for walking around downtown Flagstaff.

The Hotel Weatherford has been home to a radio station, billiard hall, various restaurants, and Flagstaff's first telephone exchange company. It has played host to gunslingers, pioneers, and today, visitors looking for a hotel loaded with character and history. Built in 1897, the Weatherford, conveniently located close to the Amtrak station in downtown, is immediately recognizable by its columned veranda. Most of the hotels 11 rooms are rather spartan and subject to the occasional rattle of passing trains. But if you're seeking a comfortable, affordable stay with turn-of-the-century charm, and don't mind going without some modern amenities such as TV and telephones, the Weatherford fits the bill. If you can't go without, upgrade to one of the three restored rooms on the second floor, which feature claw-foot tubs, air conditioning, and phones. Charly's Pub and Grill, located downstairs, offers solid Southwestern fare for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and live entertainment.
