Views along Humphreys Trail No. 50. The trail starts at the Arizona Snowbowl and winds steeply up to Humphreys Peak, the highest point in Arizona at 12,633 feet. Humphreys Peak is one of several named peaks in the San Francisco Peaks (aka San Francisco Mountain or simply "the Peaks"). The mountain is an extinct stratovolcano. The 5+ mile hike ascends over an elevation gain of over 3,000 feet, and generally take 6 to 8 hours to complete.
