Foxglenn Trail

Flagstaff Urban Trails System (FUTS)About the Trail

The trail begins in Foxglenn Park as a concrete trail near the park's entrance on Butler Avenue. Within the park there are several concrete side trails, including one around the perimeter of the park. The main trail leaves the Foxglenn Park at its southwest corner, becomes an aggregate trail, and follows the broad, flat canyon-bottom of the Rio de Flag. 

West of Fourth Street, the trail follows a hilly course throughout the forest before coming to an end at Herold Ranch Road. The western portion of the trail is steep at times.
