Trail Run in Lockett Meadow

Lockett Meadow - Search Nearby - Added by Moe Lauchert

Lockett Meadow offers plenty of solitude and a great opportunity for altitude training. The trails are well established and marked, and is located close to a campground. 

Getting There

North of Flagstaff on the 89A, take a left turn directly after a sign for Sunset Crater. This road winds up a well-developed path; when it ends, turn right. After the road banks left, take a right at the next fork and continue on the dirt road up a single lane path until you enter the Lockett Meadow campground. Be sure to drive carefully and slowly, as other vehicles will be leaving Lockett Meadow on the same one-lane road. Park in the free day-use area and get ready to run!

The Trail

Walk through the campground and look for the Inner Basin Trailhead. The trail is well marked and well kept but the roots are allowed to grow and the rocks in the beginning of the path create constant obstacles. After about a mile, the trail smooths out. The Inner Basin Trail will eventually intersect with the Weatherford Trail which then leads to Humphrey's Peak, the tallest point in Arizona at 12,637 feet.

Good Hike!

The Aspen trees are amazing, never seen such big groves of such large aspen trees! Such a beautiful hike, you get to hike in the shade of the aspens for much of the hike!

Absolutely Amazing

We recently went on this trail in early October and it was amazing! It was beautiful to see the "golden carpet" and the local hikers were very friendly. Parking and the drive was very straight forward but be careful not to park in camping spots. We got a $8 ticket for doing so and it was impossible to find the drop box to pay that fine so we ended up having to mail it in from Flagstaff.

Aspens and wildlife

Trail is great in the fall. Be on the lookout for wildlife in the open meadow!
