Things to see & do

The northern gateway to the White Mountains, Snowflake and Taylor are conveniently located in the center of some of the most exciting recreational opportunities in Arizona. From the majestic views of the Navajo Nation’s famous Monument Valley to the Historic Route 66 experience and world-reknowned Petrified Forest, day trips north of the communities can be packed full of adventure.

Snowflake, Taylor, and Shumway are featured on the Trail of Many Tracks, a Four Corners Heritage touring route. This self-guided driving tour transports you back in time. Stop by the Chamber office for more information.

Interested in the scenic White Mountains of Arizona, home to the largest stand of Ponderosa Pine in the world? A short half hour drive to the south finds visitors with a variety of outdoor recreational activities including hunting, fishing, hiking, and snow skiing, while the excitement of casino gaming and fine dining are available only minutes to the south.

Combined with a wealth of local attractions, you’ll find Snowflake/Taylor the perfect spot to “see and do it all” in northeastern Arizona!
