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

Varied scenery for hikers, bikers, or for walking dog on leash. There are parking lots on each end of more than 8 miles of trail that winds through prairie, rock formations, and wooded lakeside.

This old rail-bed has been converted to a 4.5 mile hiking/biking trail. It has great views of Watson Lake and the boulders of the Granite Dells.

Started the trail nice and early, lots of really pleasant folks all along the journey. Very well maintained, lots of wonderful spots to stop for pictures. I was running, so much to see. Lots of bicycles also. Everybody appeared to have a very fun time. Such great views of Watson lake, you get to see the other side. I even... More

We stopped here on a whim. It's 2.00 bucks to park and walk around. We did some hiking and climbed among the rocks. It's really pretty. There are not many restrooms around the park though. We had to treck a ways to get to the only one we saw. It's neat place to see something different.

We got to prescott the 1st week of March and the tri-cities were dry but the trail trees still had snow and you could see the snow melt and drip from the bent branches. The trails were beautiful and we still hiked even with the snow, Just a couple of inches but the weather was still nice. It's worth the... More
