Prescott, Arizona Map

The parking area on Walker Road is a little hidden, so if you get to the part of the road where the speed limit is 25 mph, you've gone too far. Easy parking area, light trail traffic. Great uphill hike, and lots of beautiful scenery.

overall a really great hike! the southern, Eastern and Western sides is boring but the northern Boulder area makes up for it! in the boulder area watch for the white dots placed about every 20' on the rocks. they will guide you along. do not assume the path follows any worn dirt path ( of which there are many) along the way. Stay with the white dots. some of the dots cannot be seen until you get up to the boulder so pay attention to your compass and map. also, be especially alert when other trails intersect the main trail as they also have white dots.

allow 2.5 - 3.0 hours for the full hike. we are in good shape and are faster walkers but it took us 2.5 hours. Have fun!

Beautiful & scenic hike! Take the loop along the lake and not the straight & narrow loop. It’s more challenging and much more beautiful. Bring picnic to eat when you get down in the bowels...picturesque! Remember to take your trash with you.

One of the best downhill sites in Prescott.

Start right for a gradual hike up and continue to loop around to go back down the steeper side, paved.

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.

Good hike...will return to do trail #94 as we didn’t have time today.

Beautiful trail. Some challenges and some easy hiking. Perfect for training for long hikes.
