Considered Arizona’s outdoor capital, Flagstaff has continually been voted one of the best cities in the country for outdoor recreation, offering a plethora of nearby hiking, rock climbing, bouldering, mountain biking and river rafting opportunities. What better way to soak in the outdoors than to experience it firsthand?

June 10 is National Get Outdoors Day, and NAU-TV recently produced two videos featuring fun local hikes. Whether you try these or enjoy some trails closer to home, we hope these videos inspire you to take advantage of the day. Sit back, relax and enjoy the view as Mitch Strohman and Carly Banks showcase the renowned beauty of northern Arizona.
