“Perfect Bike Trail... even in Winter”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

I've been biking recreationally and for exercise for years and just moved to the area. The Peavine and Iron King trails (out to Prescott Valley) are excellent locations to ride a smoothly maintained and moderate grade "old railroad track bed" type trail and the scenery is outstanding. The trail can get a bit muddy but it is canted so water does run off. The grades are no more difficult than what an early locomotive could pull and their are rest stops along the some 16+ round trip miles. I've been riding it all of late 2012 and it is my go to trail. Enjoy.

“Great Trail for Everyone”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

This trail is not only beautful (walking by Watson Lake and The Dells) but it's flat and easy, too. It works for anyone of any age and any hiking level.There are historical markers and benches, too. Don't miss it! $2 parking fee and well worth it.

“A great trail!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

We really enjoyed walking this easy to walk trail. The scenery was simply amazing. We came in at the parking lot entrance, which is on the southerly side. You do have to pay $2.00 but I sure thought it was worth it. Tripadvisor sends you to the northerly end and I found that a bit confusing for parking as I didn't want to just park on the side of the road. Spend the $2.00 and park in the parking lot. That location is just off of Sundog Ranch Rd, which is off of Prescott Lakes Pkwy. (Take highway 89 to Prescott Lakes Prkwy head southeast to Sundog Ranch Rd head northeast) You will see the Yavapai Humane Society building on the corner. I can't wait to come back as there were many trails to walk.
