A well maintained and marked trail with petroglyphs at the rock formation at the high point of the trail. This is a well maintained and marked trail through suburbs west of Prescott, AZ. An in-town trail that meanders through the boulders and canyons, with panoramic views of the City of Prescott, Rodeo Grounds, Thumb Butte, and Granite Mountain. The rock formation at the high point of the trail has two areas with petroglyphs.

There are nice views from this trail, however noise from Iron Springs Road and nearby new home construction make it less peaceful than other hikes available in the area.

They are putting in some sort of drainage thing so we could only go about a mile. The birding was really good for the time of day and year we were there. I’d like to return when the construction is finished

Solid hike of 4 miles from east end to west end and back. Enjoyed the trail. Due to sporadic view of homes and sounds of the city along the hike, this trail lacked that out-in-the-wilderness feel. Others may prefer this aspect.

relatively easy trail with some slight inclines. some views of the canyon valley. it does meander up the canyon which has a housing development on both sides so you fo walk close to property lines st the end. there are some petroglyphs on the highest Boulder at the end of the trail where it comes out on the tarred road.

Lots of interweaving routes to explore. Mostly used for bouldering. Some anchor points for rappelling. Nice view. A little too technical for trail running unless you're really agile and know the trail well. It's easy to accidentally veer off the trail but easy enough to find again. Great place to take an outdoorsy little one to climb all over the place. Three minutes from downtown.
