The Flagstaff Urban Trails System (FUTS, say "foots") is a city-wide network of non-motorized, shared-use pathways that are used by bicyclists, walkers, hikers, runners, and other users for both recreation and transportation.

At present there are about 56 miles of FUTS trails in Flagstaff. The overall master plan shows about 75 miles of future trails, to complete a planned system of 130 miles.

About half of the miles of existing trails are paved, either in concrete or asphalt, and half consist of a hard-packed, aggregate surface. FUTS trails are generally eight or ten feet in width.

FUTS trails offer an incredibly diverse range of experiences; some trails are located along busy streets, while others traverse beautiful natural places - canyons, riparian areas, grasslands, meadows, and forests - all within the urban area of Flagstaff. The system connects neighborhoods, shopping, places of employment, schools, parks, open space, and the surrounding National Forest, and allows users to combine transportation, recreation and contact with nature.

With a few exceptions, FUTS trails are operated and maintained by the City of Flagstaff.

According to the City of Flagstaff Citizen Survey 2009, 78 percent of Flagstaff residents have used the FUTS trail system in the last year.
