Kendrick Mountain Wilderness
|Photos by Rob Jones
Kendrick Peak, part of the great San Francisco Mountain Range, is Arizona's second highest peak. Imagine the view from on top at 10,418 feet! The Kendrick Mountain Trail, more than a moderate challenge, is listed as a nine mile roundtrip. Views from the peak; the Coconino Plateau, Government Prairie, Oak Creek Canyon, and a distant, 50 mile view of the cliffs at the Grand Canyon's North Rim. This fantastic lookout provided a prime location for a forest service fire-watch. The 1912 U.S. Forest Service lookout cabin and tower are still in place, making a suitable goal for a climb to the peak. A pastureland, near the cabin, provided grazing land for the Ranger's mounts, used to make the daily trip to the tower above.
