At the junction of the southern loop fork with Arizona Trail.
On the western flank of the San Francisco Peaks, Aspen Loop Trail is a moderate 2 mile loop trail descending through a beautiful forest of aspen, fir, and pine to meet the Arizona National Scenic Trail Passage 34. The trail offers views of the San Francisco Peaks, Kendrick Mountain, and hills to the west of the Peaks. The trail splits at around the half-mile mark. Follow either fork to the Arizona Trail, and follow the signs along the Arizona Trail to the return trail to complete the loop. The trailhead is at the Humphreys Trailhead just below the Arizona Snowbowl.
