Awesome trail

loved this trail, there are 2 ways up I prefer the steep way up and the gradual way down. it's a really nice challenge and not to hard since its short giong up. bring water though its certainly a burst of intense cardio.

Very convenient to downtown Prescott, and the recreation area itself is a great spot to enjoy the trees and scenery. The trail can be done clockwise or counterclockwise. Clockwise gives you a steeper, but paved ascent. Counterclockwise gives you a more gradual but rocky ascent (and more nature). I did it counter clockwise but would do it clockwise next time. The views will be in front of you if you ascend using the paved route. Benches available on the way up to sit and look out over the landscape. If you do it as a loop , make sure to go all the way to the top and spend a moment at the Memorial to the Yarnell 19.

Great trail... a bit challenging up the front but worth if for the down hill back side.
