The Fort Valley Trail follows Fort Valley Road between Kendrick Street and Schultz Pass Road. Use caution in the segment south of Sechrist Elementary School, where the trail crosses Fort Valley Road, narrows and is right next to the road. Here it also crosses several side streets so watch for traffic. The northern segment of the trail is wider and is buffered from the road. As you head south to north, the trail goes up hill at a gentle grade until it reaches the Museum of Northern Arizona, where it's more steep.
The Fort Valley Trail meets up with the Karen Cooper Trail (Rio North Trail)
at Freemont Boulevard and Fort Valley Road.
You can park on Colton Court, a small pullout area north of the Coconino County Government offices.
