Trail #29 connects to the Weatherford Trail in 3.9 miles and leads into the Inner Basin on the eastern slopes of the San Francisco Peaks. The elevation range is 8,600-10,500 feet. The trail is within the Kachina Peaks Wilderness on the San Francisco Peaks. Recommended season of use is June through mid-September.

Flora & Fauna

The Inner Basin contains a luxuriant sub-alpine environment and the Inner Basin Trail passes through a variety of striking and fascinating vegetation including extensive stands of: quaking aspen (Populus tremuloides), ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa) and Douglas fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii). Many shrubs grow in the area including willow (Salix scouleriana), gooseberry (Ribes pinetorum) and mountain snowberry (Symphoricarpos oreophilus). Delightful native wildflowers such as the silvery lupine (Lupinus argenteus), Richardson’s geranium (Geranium richardsonii), firecracker penstemon (Penstemon eatonii) mountain monardella (Monardella odoratissima), heartleaf arnica (Arnica cordifolia), and red baneberry (Actaea rubra) may be seen along the trail.
