Sick hike, really good Saturday! Total time for us was about 3 hours (we spent some time climbing around at the top) and all and all did about 9.7 miles!

Couldn’t have been a better hike to get up to 7000 ft for the first time of the year.

HikingGreat!

As described after 2 miles steep climb to the saddle then 1 mile on a beautiful ridge. 2 1/2 hours up. Extremely windy added to the adventure. Highly recommended.

HikingFeeGreat!Rocky

Had a great hike, empty trail. We left the parking lot at 10:20 and returned appx 2:20. Beautiful sweeping views, great rock outcroppings at the top to sit and have lunch. When you get to the top, a trail heads to the right, this winds farther up and through a small forested area on the top of Granite Mountain. Lots of birds in the forest at the beginning of the hike before we began to ascend. The climb was totally fine, not too steep of a grade.

Beautiful rock formations. Well marked. Like other reviews basically an easy walk flat walk for an hour followed by another hour of switchbacks. Not too strenuous.

This is a super cool trail—one of our favorites in Prescott! The trail was clearly marked and the perfect amount of challenging. There are gorgeous views throughout but the view from the end of the trail is breathtaking. There is also a lot to explore at the top.
