Just like an escape room, the puzzles and clues are challenging to figure out - you'll need team work to make it happen! Unlike an escape room, you're outdoors, enjoying the time with family and friends and visiting places you might have otherwise passed by!

My wife and I decided to take the left trail up the mountain as it was the steepest. We had to stop several times but it was worth it as the scenery was expansive and we had to catch our breath. Coming down was easier but still scenic. A great trail to test your cardio vascular system.

This hike is very short and challenging but offers several beautiful views. The trail is very well maintained and a large portion of it is paved. The backside isn't paved and can be pretty muddy after rain.

This is a nice 1 to 1.5 hour hike, depending on your pace to walk the 2 mile loop trail. It is about a 10 minute drive from downtown Prescott. Take West Gurley Street, which turns into Thumb Butte Road to the parking area at Thumb Butte Recreation Area. The trailhead is across the street from parking. There are restroom facilities in parking area. This is also a fee area ($5/day) unless you have the annual national park or Senior pass. Trail #33 is an easy hike (if you are an occasional hiker) with some elevation gain and overlook views. Part of the trail is paved.

You can see Thumb Butte from all over Prescott. The trail is only a short drive to a nice Forest Service parking lot. The trail is a big loop but the day we were there we went up and back due to snow and ice on the trail. The part of the trail we were on was mostly paved with asphalt. Which was fine. I expect we will hike this again next year.
