There are so many amazing hiking spots in Williams that our inn keepers have curated a list of a few of their own favorites to highly recommend to guests. “I suggest downloading an app called “All Trails” to folks staying with us so they can look up the hike they’re interested in and get specific directions to it,” said Emily, inn keeper. “The app also shows you where you are on the trail, which can be helpful.”
Here are the top hiking trails, according to Trapper’s Rendezvous inn keepers:
Davenport Hill Trail
This trail starts at Dogtown campground and is a six-mile round trip hike with an 800-foot elevation gain, which primarily occurs at the last half mile of the hike. This hike offers great views of the San Francisco Peak with a giant cairn at the top.
Summit Mountain Trail
This trail is off White Horse Road on Fire Road 706. Look for a wooden fence on the right side of the road to find the trail head. This hike is 2.5 miles round trip and is mostly uphill with 650-foot elevation gain. This trail is seldomly visited so those who do venture out get great views all to themselves.
Keyhole Sink Trail
This trail is located near Parks and is 1.3 miles round trip. It is an easy one to do with children because the terrain is mostly flat and it is a shorter trail. You are sure to see petroglyphs on this walk.
Sycamore Rim Trail
This trail is of Garland Prairie Road and is 11 miles round trip with a 1,200-foot elevation gain. This challenging trail rewards you with great views of Sycamore Canyon about 3.5 miles into the hike.
