    Trail conditions in Flagstaff?

    Will probably be in Flagstaff for a few days around 10/19 but noticed that there was chance of snow with some of the coming storms. Are the trails going to be starting to move towards poor riding conditions and should I be looking to go down to Prescott or Sedona instead?

    It's October 5th, way to soon to predicit what the trail conditions will be in 2 weeks. Snow is forecasted for Thursday and we did get a fair amount of rain yesterday but it's going to be close to 60 on the weekend. Keep in the loop on current conditions as your trip gets close. You might be able to ride all three areas, the Norte Arizona Trifecta

    It's probably going to be super sick unless we see a good amount of snow below 9000 ft. I don't think we will but it's hard saying without knowing.

    Shame on you! This is the time of year when you need to start thinking about that Ullr festival and find a good pair of kids size Olin's, throw it in a trash can and Cover it in Gas and Set it on Fire!!!!

    it may be best to stay away from Flagstaff. It's either too dusty, too muddy, too cold and most of the time the locals are big fat jerks.

    Rocky, chill dude, I don't think the Captain was picking on you specifically, more like a general observation. I thought you'd be in a great mood with the white stuff falling from the sky. 2 Wheels Good

    It cracks me up how an innocent thread from and out of towner wondering about Flagstaff riding conditions seems to always turn into some local debate and thread for haters. People that post these threads must think that Flag is a pretty strange place.

    Nah. They probably think AZ is a weird place. You always get some goofy a$$ responses when asking about trail conditions!

    Yea, that guy should thank his lucky stars and his custom roll cage. I'd estimate he rolled at least ten times. Almost had the jeep back on the road and the tow truck winch broke.

    I left before the fun started, but I figured they would need more than that Tacoma and another jeep to winch him up. Asked his bro if he had a winch on his Jeep at the bottom. His anwser was no, never needed one before.

    Why would he? Having owned a vehicle with a winch, 90% or better it is used on other people...but there's always that one day where you're glad you had it...

    it was a custom rock crawling rig. Lots of them have winches. Go figure, rolled driving down a road.

    If you look at the statistics, that's dead on. Its the same with biking too. You finish a gnarly section of trail, get on something easy and let your guard down. That's when you get bit in the @$$. I've witnessed a couple of Jeep roll overs in that situation. I know a guy who broke his neck biking- same thing. Should be a reminder to kick back and relax when at home with an icy cold beer in hand.

    Flag trails are awesome right now! This weekend should be good for fall colors too.
