Wonderful lake

This is a beautiful place to visit for a hike or to go fishing. Many trails to choose from. You might even see an eagle who catches more fish than anyone else. Hahaha. Have a good day!

Hike/paddle
Oct 2020 • Couples
We hiked around near Lynx Lake for 2+ hours. Very nice trail. The 2nd time we went we walked around the lake then paddled. I would go back, but avoid weekends as they are busy.

Not worth the price to park
Oct 2020
Decided it was not worth it to pay for parking, so we took a hike instead But it seemed nice if you had the time.

Nice lake and trails

I read about this prior to visiting. You do pay a parking fee but I don’t think there is a time limit. Park opens at 6am. There is a trail that goes around the lake. Very nice.

Picturesque lake
Aug 2020 • Couples
Easy drive from the Valley, this small lake is quiet and picturesque. Lots of trails around. The one that goes around the lake is paved nicely on one side. The south entrance had good accessibility for me with my walker after having recently broken my leg. You really can’t swim in any of the lakes in Prescott because of water issues, but kayaking on this lake would seem very peaceful. Worth the trip from the Valley.

Beautiful views but sad you can't swim
Aug 2020
Really nice views at this lake on both sides of access area, is nice that it's so quiet and just a few paddlers and kayakers. No kayaking going on now with Covid the business that does that is avoiding it and good for them, nice to see SOME businesses in Prescott being safe. Disappointing that swimming isn't allowed.

Very nice road to hike on. Around 2 miles or so around the lake. Shade for most of it. Will return again in a few weeks.
