    Camping in Flagstaff 7/10-7/13

    We are going to be in Flagstaff the second week of July and are looking for places to camp somewhat near the trails. I think we have our trail selection narrowed down so we're looking for suggestions on where to stay and of course can't miss trail suggestions are welcome as well.

    That would be awesome! Especially if you know your way around and don't mind showing us the good stuff?

    Thanks for the camping suggestions so far.

    A nice spot but don't be that guy. Not you of course but here's the same dispersed camping area 2 days ago on Monday during stage 1 fire restrictions (ie., no fires except in established campgrounds).

    Nah bro, keeping the city folk campers happy is way too important to be that proactive.

    We have a place at the foot of Elden, near the KOA. We plan to be in Flagstaff for a week, starting on 3rd of July. I'll either bring the RIP 9 or the 429SL. I would gladly show you and qdawgg some of the trails. I'm guessing you two are XC riders. I'm taking some friends out on a ride Saturday that connects many of the trails south of I-40, from Walnut Canyon to Fisher Point. It can be a 28-35 miles loop. I like to follow it with a lengua burrito from Tacos Los Altos, while sitting out on the patio, looking up at Mt. Elden, listening to mostly 1990's Indie Rock. If all that works for you two, and I can shuffle a slightly different music mix, then let me know. We are dog friendly, as long as yours won't eat our runts.

    I'm actually more of an all-mountain rider but I also like to do big miles. That being said we won't be there until Monday the 10th. Thanks so much for the offer though.

    Rain is good. Very good.

    Trails have degraded into "moon dust" conditions with the hot and dry conditions. Rain makes it all nice again. Enjoy!
