This is an old railroad grade converted to a trail. Parking at both ends, with the north end at a lower elevation than the south end. Connects with Prescott Valley as well. Gentle grades. One portion drops off and leads to the west side of the lake. It is shady and my grandchildren really like this portion. We use it... More

Very nice, level, easy hike. The first part is nothing spectacular, although pretty, but when you begin to glimpse those famed granite dells.....oh my! Don't forget your camera! Yes, there is a small fee to park......well worth it! Go early in the day in the heat of summer. We started out at about 10am and when that high noon sun... More

The 5.2 mile Peavine trail (one way) begins just south of Watson Lake. We actually accessed the trail from the Point of Rocks Campground on Route 89, a bit west of Watson Lake. I would highly recommend this campground if you are intending to bike/hike the Peavine. About a mile into the trail you see the Granite Dells; this is... More

Fun hiking area on flat land. It is very hot in the summer as there is no shade. I enjoy hiking this trail in the winter. You can see old train tracks and artifacts. There are beautiful dells in the area and one can walk between Prescott and Prescott Valley.

Lots of interesting individuals to be found on this easy hike - a Prescott Granite Dells treasure! Great for an easy bike ride or photo shoot, too.

We enjoyed this trail and did a 6 mile hike. It is great to walk on the trail where the Santa Fe, Prescott, & Phoenix Railroad was originally. You can do many side trails but those make you climb more. It costs $2 in parking lot. Use money or credit card. Wednesdays are FREE. Sometimes people leave their receipt on... More
