I love the outdoors. Spirituality is my calling. I wrote a book on spirituality, which addresses all those questions about life, love, and purpose. Little else so restores the spirit and health as solving life's challenges by walking out in nature. What an added blessing to live in an area of amazing landscapes with all of nature's variety laid out in endless trails to explore! Yet, it can be lonely without others to share them with, and so here we are. For Hike Difficulty Ratings and Calculations See bit.ly/HikeRating2 .

      This tour follows a number of social trails. In addition to the marked ones, this includes the Middle trail, the Quarry trail, and the Fenceline trail, parts of which are now overlayed by the new Hoot Owl trail 765. The area is further riddled with old trails branching off or crossing. Therefore, following the Komoot tour closely is important.This tour features beautiful dense forest that has not been thinned out like part of the 305, which is also shown.The Seven Mile Gulch 9854 and the Hoot Owl 765 trails allow motorcycles. Hiking early, we came across none, but step aside, when you hear them. Even though you have the right of way, this would be little consolation in an accident. Enjoy!

      105° Fahrenheit, 41° Celsius, the hotest day I have experienced in this area in over 10 years, So we cut today's hike short a bit. Parking was in the Walmart parking lot. We crossed the Street and went through the Jeep car dealership. Instead of going left toward Badger Mountain, we went right onto the Sundog Trail and turned back after a while.Beautiful and part of the Prescott Cirle Trail, one is treated to views of most of Prescott and much of the surrounding area, but in nature, all the while being surrounded by the city.

      Out and back instead of the meandering two days ago, this hike was done with a different, slightly faster group on a beautiful, humid summer morning, for which the trail provided much shade.To avoid parking fees, the trailhead today was chosen at the Watson Woods Riparian Habitat parking lot just East of Hwy 89 and Rosser Street. No facilities.

      This tour will require following its Komoot map and/or verbal instruction. Normally partially under water, drought conditions have made this trek possible. Enjoy the beautiful scenery, as you meander using regular paths, social trails, animal routes, and outright bushwhacking.Beware of snakes! While unlikely, this is where their prey may be found, and so then are they.

      Lynx Lake again, but with Forest Road 611 this time. I spoke with the forest service, when they would open up again. Their lips moved, but I heard no useful information.They said I could always hike Lynx Lake. I said, I have done it so many times I could do it blindfolded.They said this would be interesting. Finally something in that conversation I could agree with! I laughed. 🙂

      Lynx Lake Tr 311, the only decent trail open in Prescott National Forest nearby right now--for a fee, except on Wednesdays. 🤔😎

      Badger Mt. Trail is not the most exciting trail perhaps, but for an in/near the city hike it has some nice elevation. It also is part of the 52 mile long set of trails called the Prescott Circle trail. Of course, you can hike up to Badger Mountain Peak, either from the Turley trailhead (shorter) or from behind the York Jeep car dealership (longer), hence the photos of the Ferrari. By the way, the 'P' for Prescott is written as a large white letter on the side not visible from this tour.Being part of a group, I did not go to the top, and we made it an out and back hike. Parking is across the street in the Walmart parking lot.Being popular with cyclists, watching out and listening for cyclists is important. All the cyclist we encountered were most courteous. 🙂🤚🚵‍♂️😎

      Difficult to make this a full hike on the 18 acre property, this tour of collective 1.5 miles of trails goes over many of the same locations in both directions. So, if you want a short walk and/or take the time to read and study everything, you can easily customize the experience. The photos include all the information you need.Hours are 7 am to sunset. A porta potty toilet room is also available at the trailhead. Parking is limited to about 8 vehicles and groups over 10 people are asked to contact the city beforehand. Overflow parking onto the adjacent school may be possible at certain times.When looking at this tour map, it looks like a flower. The stem is a 0.84 mile out and back addition, the School Trail. Because it goes through Granite Mountain School and Abia Judd Elementary School, it is closed oddly from 7 am to 4 pm, when schools are in session. Thus, this tour is actually two small hikes in one.More information is also available at prescott-az.gov/recreation-area/community-nature-center

      One of a handful of trails are allowed by the National Forest Service at this time. This is one of them. Penalty otherwise is $5,000 or 6 months in prison, or both--just for wanting to enjoy the outdoors. Details are available in the photos.

      A really beautiful hike right in Prescott with petroglyphs at the top and turn around point.
