This isn't the most difficult hike in the Phoenix area, but it is about as beautiful as the desert gets. And you can definitely get your heart rate up due to the elevation gain and semi-rocky terrain. This was my favorite hike in the area... I wish this would have continued on for another few miles.

Very convenient to downtown Prescott, and the recreation area itself is a great spot to enjoy the trees and scenery. The trail can be done clockwise or counterclockwise. Clockwise gives you a steeper, but paved ascent. Counterclockwise gives you a more gradual but rocky ascent (and more nature). I did it counter clockwise but would do it clockwise next time. The views will be in front of you if you ascend using the paved route. Benches available on the way up to sit and look out over the landscape. If you do it as a loop , make sure to go all the way to the top and spend a moment at the Memorial to the Yarnell 19.

Trails are marked clearly and maps throughout. Good challenge
