Veit Springs Historic Spring Houses

Photograph of historic buildings found on the Veit Springs Trail, of the Coconino National Forest's Kachine Peaks Wilderness Area.

To the casual observer, the Veit Springs Trail-head is very easy to overlook, as you make your way up the winding Snow Bowl Road towards the usual destination of the ski area, the Kachina Trail head, or the summit trail head to the top of Mt. Humphreys. The springs trail-head is an unassuming and unmarked area on the right side of the road exactly 4.3 miles from the junction with U.S. 180 out of Flagstaff. Recently renamed the Lamar Haines Memorial Wildlife Area in honor of conservationist and outdoorsman, Lamar Haines, the trail is an easy 1.8-mile loop hike through towering pines and thick groves of aspen, with some interesting historical background thrown in for extra measure. Pictured here is the approach to two small stone sheds, surrounded by aspen trees in full Autumn dress.
