trailhead is at mile marker 5 on walker rd. Beautiful woodsy setting with some great view and streams. We happened to go when the trail was snow covered which added to the beauty. However areas where the snow melted it
was muddy and a
little slippery but that's
what happens. Check the
elevation, there are some steep areas. Such a
beautiful place I'll come
back in warm weather
too.

A fun trek of about 4.5 miles round trip. It’s an odd trail because you start off on a muddy road which eventually turns into a “small dried up water way”. I followed the cows’ hoof prints all the way to a stream where an arrow made out of rocks pointed across the little stream to a clear trail. Follow that back another 200 meters, and you’ll find the tree.

Excellent views of Prescott and the San Francisco Peaks from the top of Wolverton mountain. However, some moderate elevation change, somewhat step in places, is required to get there. Ponderosa pine and Juniper forest, trails can be wet in season. One of my favorite hikes.

Awesome hike, a little hard to get to but well worth it when reached. It’s clean and kept, I think I picked up one piece of trash the whole way. There is also a lot of good rock structures ghat you can climb. Very stellar.

great trail! please be respectful of this beautiful monument.

Great trail. Easy downhill from Copper Basin to White Spar.

Boring trail. long and flat. not much to see, but great entry to Storm Trail and Easter Island trail systems.

awesome hike! great elevation change.

Pleasant hike with beautiful views from the top of the hill! Plenty of benches for a rest while you take in the view. It was a bit muddy and had a couple small patches of snow/ice, so be prepared if you go in winter!

Trailhead says not to enter due to blasting. I tried to walk to the trailhead further along the trail that was indicated on the first trailhead’s redirection, but that was inaccessible due to road closures (maybe from the same blasting?). Total bust.

Coming out of Crown King going north to Prescott, the first 5 miles were pretty rough. They are doing some road work, grading and taking out ruts. After you get through that section it’s pretty easy. Give yourself some time for this. It took us about 4 hours. Great scenery and a lot of places to stop. Hit some snow on the last few miles of the trail. The mountains and trees create a shady area and the snow doesn’t melt much and a decent amount of ice. Well worth the time to make the trip.

Love this trail I like to hike it on my lunch break!

50% of the trail is flat the other is rocky. It can be difficult because of the climbing over some boulders... the follow the dots trail system was somewhat confusing n frustrating at times. I clocked my hiking to five (plus) miles perhaps bc we missed some of the dots n had to retract a few times from main trail. We took our three lil dogs not anticipating the huge rocks... so it made our experience a bit difficult. I would recommend n re-hike this trail again.

Got lost & my AllTrails stopped for a portion of the hike. Great hike though.

Easy hike for all ability levels. 4 wheel drive to parking.

love the hike but not easy atleast moderate trial.

Great moderate hike. Go right if you want the easier route. When you get to the Hotshot Memorial you’re about at the half way point. I’ve done it twice, both weekdays, and only encountered a handful of people each time.

01-24-2019. Fantastic hike with great views at the top. Still a little snow and ice on the ground during my trek. Go counter clockwise for a more leisurely, but longer, stroll. Go clockwise for more of a challenge.
Note, part of the 6 mile (clockwise) trail is closed due to logging (at the above date), but it is isolated to the first 1/2 mile or so. You can take the dirt access road (9406J) towards Camp Wamatochick and jump onto the 6 mile Spruce Mountain Trail from there. See the map at the trailhead for a visual reference.

beautiful trail. easy to moderate. great alternative to the main trail with a different view of the mountain

Great trail! Just follow the map and you'll navigate just fine.

It's a pretty hike but the trails are not marked very well. Be sure you know where you're going beforehand!

loved this trail, it was actually a lot easier than expected. I've been out of shape for a while too. It has great views, great spots to explore, and amazing photo opportunities.

There are so many unexpected little stone staircases and hidden views. It’s a secluded little gem.
