If snow-capped mountains enthral you and hiking is your forte, get introduced to the Teanaway region with the Navaho Pass that is laden with wildflowers. The trail starts from the dry forests of Stafford Creek Trailhead with the murmuring sound of the creek and a plethora of wild flora such as Scarlet Gilia, Tiger Lilies, Indian Paintbrush, Desert Parsley, Jeffrey’s Shooting Stars and many more. The trail is a zigzag with switchbacks and then moderate and more enjoyable with the vast meadows full of wildflowers and the Stafford Creek enroute. Ponderosa Pine and Yarrows uphill will greet you on your route to the campground meadow and the moonscape made of green serpentine and grey granite will give you perfect photographic opportunity. Earl Peak and Mount Stuart with breath-taking vista is the best reward of this Pass.

Navaho Pass Reviews & Ratings
Beautiful well kept trail with ever-changing views along the way. The view of the Stuart Range is breathtaking once you reach the pass. If you've still got reserves tackle Navaho Peak for even more amazing views!
Excellent hike up to Navaho Pass with an option to add Navaho Peak for an extra couple of miles and a few hundred feet more elevation. Stafford Creek is a constant companion for most of the hike. The only drawback is that the last four miles or so of road is rough and filled with pot holes.
Tons of backpackers in the warmer seasons. PLENTY of scenery and solitude. Best of all: dog friendly.
Often good berries in fall. Loop back down Standup Creek possible for hikers. Standup Cr Trail not suitable for horses. Can cross over into Engles Creek and make alternate loops
Great backpacking spot! Decent hike up to the meadows where most of the camping spots are, right along side a stream. Great views of the Enchantments
