First mile is lovely but pretty barren after that due to a previous forest fire. I'd skip
It if you had only one day to hike in Prescott

Geat day to the top! Got warm on our decent. Wish we could start at dawn but gates don't open til 6 am, but the hike up was mostly shaded and very enjoyable. Passed a few other hikers and well behaved dogs. The view was hazy but still breathtaking as we ate a snack before our decent.

Just to clarify: this is not the Granite Mountain Hotshots Memorial Trail, as some other reviews had previously alluded. Go to the memorial park website for details on that separate trail. This is a lovely and scenic hike up Granite Mountain itself. Flat and shady for the first few miles then steeper and exposed but rewarding at the top for your hard work!
