My wife and I did this ride round trip as our first "off road" ride. The grade is mild, the surface one step below paved, and the scenery is beautiful. We started out a bit late for early August and did not take enough water but that was our poor planning not the trail. Like many comments here, the first... More

I had a little trouble finding the northern end. Being from the east coast, the terrain and plant life was different and a treat. I came to ride it because I was trying to ride all the Hall of Fame Trails. I hope to return next year to spend more time on some of the other trails.

Enjoyed this hike along an old rail bed. Walked through a tree tunnel, skirted by the Granite Dell's near Watson lake, and even heard the geese honking. Though the beginning of the hike passes by the city services yard, you will barely notice it since the riparian area on the other side of the trail will keep your head turning... More

The Peavine National Recreation Trail is a lovely hike. The trail is well maintained, and travels along lakes and boulders. I used to walk dogs for the Yavapai Humane Society on Peavine Trail. However, the trail is clean and dogs are on leashes. Part of the trail follows the route of railroad tracks that brought trains to Prescott from Flagstaff... More

Level enough for the grand-kids, long enough for runners and joggers, hills towards Prescott Valley and then there is the lake. Geocaching now as well. Good place to ride a bicycle as well as hike and jig. Rest rooms are a plus.

I've loved walking on this trail for years. Really enjoy seeing people walk dogs from the local humane society. Lots of room on the wide trail for walking 2 or 3 abreast with dogs. Despite dogs there are still lots of birds, both woodland and water.

We love to do the Peavine trail by Watson Lake. The scenic trail is so beautiful, we never get tired of it. We had to try out the new little bit they added last winter, and it was even more fun. You can hike, bike, or ride your horse here.

This trail goes along Watson Lake and bird preserve which is why we hiked it. There is nothing I didn't like. There is even restrooms at the entrance.

The Trail is both a Bike path and a walking path. Bikers can put roughly 14 miles round trip between Prescott and Prescott Valley . walkers can go off trail into the boulder surrounding Watson lake or even hike around the dam.

I don't know many trails around town, but I do know the Peavine. It can be easy or hard just determined by the distance that you choose to go. It is beautiful all throughout though and well worth at least one hike!
