Access: Drive 48 miles south of Flagstaff on Forest Highway 3 (Lake Mary Road). Turn east (left) on FR 211. Follow FR 211 about 8 miles to FR 82 then turn left (north) 12 miles to Long Lake. Or from Phoenix going north on Hwy 87, turn west (left) on FR 211 about a quarter mile north of the Blue Ridge office (about milepost 300). Turn right about 3.5 miles at the FR 82 intersection and then 12 miles to the lake.
