The trail up Humphreys peak is great. If you are a hiker like me, you will appreciate the wideness and that there is relativly "no traffic jams" up this trail.

We hiked to the summit of Humphrey's Peak in late October. It was fantastic. The views are amazing, the trail is well-marked, and there's summit register on top. Totally worth the effort.

Consider a hike up the sides of the San Franciso Peaks. HUmphrey's is tallest summit and then reflect upon the fact that all on which you stand and see as part of the peaks was a supervolcano. The middle of the peaks is the ancient...More

My friends who love to hike love this one. I, however, do not. My attempt was in vain. This one is not for me, but because my friends had such a great time i'll give it a 4.

To understand why this peak is sacred to the Hopi, the Navajo, and other locals, it helps to stand on it, in the cool, thin air, well above the tree line, at about 12,633 feet. It is humbling indeed, at this elevation, to remember that...More

Expect to hike for at least six hours. Come prepared. In the summer monsoon season, start early so you don't get caught in the afternoon rain. Less crowded after Labor Day, well into October.

There are National Forests around the base. last I knew of you don't need a permit. Check in with the Coconino NF folks or the local outfitter to be sure.

I don't think the snow lifts operates in the summer. And I know the lifts don't go up to Mt. Humphrey. You might get thunderstorms in July so just check the weather before you go on a long hike. Hope this helps.
