At the feet, this southeastern slope of Mount Elden looks like a cast in stone. This trail escorts you up to the frozen lava, up above the mountain’s summit to Flagstaff. The route starts as a slow climb, along the shorter and less steep Fatman’s Loop. Along the way are the breathtaking views as well as intimate areas of the beautiful geology of the place. There are many species of cactus at the top, which is surprising as the weather conditions are cold here. This area experienced a massive outbreak of fire in 1977, since then it has recovered beautifully and is an exquisite example of how magnificently nature recuperates.
