Where is it?

The Flagstaff Community Labyrinth is in Flagstaff, Arizona, USA, just over one mile from the center of downtown. But it feels much wilder than that.

From the Sinclair Wash Trailhead on Lone Tree Road (at Brannen Circle, 3 blocks south of REI) walk about 3 minutes northeast on the trail until you see the word "labyrinth" painted on a rock on the north (left) side of the trail. Follow the painted arrows for 1 minute up the short steep trail to the Flagstaff Community Labyrinth. If you switch to satellite view, you can zoom in and see the labyrinth.

Another way to reach the labyrinth is to walk southwest from the kid's play structure on the west end of Sawmill Park. Or you can park in the parking lot at Willow Bend Nature Center; take their signed trail down into the canyon; when you reach the main FUTS trail, take it west (right turn) for 2 minutes till you see the labyrinth sign on a rock (see photo).

Unfortunately, the labyrinth is not wheelchair-accessible.

There are at least 4 other labyrinths in Flagstaff, one at Epiphany Church, 423 North Beaver St. (Chartres pattern, with 4-inch wide paths [about as wide as your foot] painted on concrete), one behind the church at 740 W. University Heights Dr. South (classic Iona pattern, medium-size rocks on the ground), one in front of the campus ministry building at 500 W. Riordan Rd (small rocks on gravel), and one behind The Peaks senior living community (description later, maybe). You can find other labyrinths at the worldwide labyrinth locator website.

In October 2018, this independently-created documentary appeared on YouTube.
