Basic Directions
Entering Flagstaff from the south (from I-17 or I-40 exit 195), get on Milton Road heading north. After going through the Butler Avenue intersection, get in the left lane, and make a sharp left immediately after the railroad overpass onto West Santa Fe Ave. Drive to the fork at the end of West Santa Fe, at the base of a hill. Take the right fork, and drive up the switchback road. You'll come to Lowell's Steele Visitor Center parking lot a little over a mile from the fork.

Entering Flagstaff from the east (from Highway 89 or I-40 exit 201), get on Rt. 66 westbound and drive through downtown in the right lane.
