Taking the road up to Mt. Elden summit, took this photo looking southward over the town of Flagstaff. You can see the dome of the stadium where NAU sports teams play.

Mt. Elden is essentially North of Flagstaff, but East of the San Francisco Peaks. It is one of the largest peaks on the North-Eastern side of town. From there you can see Eastward toward the Painted Desert. Looking West from Mt. Elden you also get a great view of the San Francisco peaks.

The road up to the summit is mostly dirt/gravel. It is easily traveled in good weather. The very top is fenced off for utility company use - but you can park just below the summit and walk to the top. There are even hiking trail-heads from the top, plus many all along the road up.
