General Information: The rather unique name for this trail comes from a sheepherder who once lived in the area and was as good at clipping his fellow herders as he was at shearing woolies.
Barbershop Trail meanders through a pleasant region of open forests and shallow canyons and provides an excellent place to enjoy a woodland stroll or a weekend backpack. You'll find a wide variety of tree species here, including maple, aspen and oak, scattered among the more typical ponderosa pine and Douglas fir. The high proportion of deciduous trees makes this trail an especially colorful place in the fall, but there's plenty of wildlife to see at all seasons of the year. Watch for wild turkey, mule deer and elk. There are black bear in the area too, but they're much harder to see. Especially while you're so busy enjoying the scenery.
Directions: From Flagstaff, Drive about 55 Miles south on Forest Highway 3 (Lake Mary Road). Turn north 9 miles on AZ 87 to FR 95 and then south (right) 8 miles to FR 139 and continue 7 miles to the trailhead. FH 3 and AZ 87 are paved. All other roads are graveled and suitable for passenger vehicles except during winter when they are closed.
