Lamar Haines Of Veit Springs
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 outdoors-man, 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.
