I rode it out and back from the North end. Super fun. No hikers. Maybe my favorite trail in Prescott. The perfect balance of climbing and descending.

This is a black trail, loose large chunk demolished by motorcycles. You can connect to the Ranch trail but it's a miserable experience with steep climbs. Honestly, if you are on a mountain bike I'd stay away from this trail.

This trail is 100% eBike legal, confirmed with local authorities. Trailforks should not remove trails with proper documentation.

Elevation gain is off. More like ~400' of climbing from Badger/Ranch intersection to 69. Super fun trail. Fast, flowy, well-built, and scenic. One of the best downhills in Prescott.

I rode from senetor past boy scout a few miles which got really fun. Little bit of chunk, switchbacks, berms, flowy spots. Cool views right from the gecko. Solid climb back up but well worth it!

Sweet, fast, flowy descent...sunset/night riding especially yields an unparalled Prescott city skyline views! Take a gander from the metal bench...totally worth the climb!

Not for the faint of heart. Very rocky and steep (>500’ per mile).

This is labeled as a blue. But don’t let that fool you. It’s a black trail. It’s fast and loose with some really fast tech sections with a couple of small drops and gnar rock gardens. Watch your ankles as this one will spit rocks at you.

Super fun trail if you park off senator Highway and take it East Bound its the Best way. I would only recommend shuttling this trail because to come back up it its long. *DO NOT GO UP 9854 ACCESS ROAD TO GET BACK* I would recommend having 2 vehicles one to park at the bottom off of walker rd and then have the other at the trail head off senator Highway. Very fun long downhill Only go eastbound

Fun trail w views of the burbs. Low trees/ shrubbery mostly. All bench cut.
Fast sections with water bars/ jumps too.

Listed as rd but more of a moto trail. Fun for skilled roders down only. Do not climb.
If you rode a conveyor belt in a gravel quarry you'd roll over less rocks.

I rode from top to bottom (backwards from the red/green shapes).
Looked like an atv trail at top where neither line was good but it got better. Seems to get moto use so not as nice of a trail as the rest of Prescott. Great dh race type trail. Good way to connect to other trails. I turned right at intersection in middle.

Super fun trail, I wish I would have started up top rather than jumping in at the boy scouts intersection as that trail was a joke. I’d try this one again from the top it has quite the mix and flows nicely if you keep some speed ????????

Sheet of ice in tunnel under State Road 69. Trail is dry except for a few damp spots in the draws where there is shade, not an issue though. Numerous rocks in trail from snow and storms. Very bumpy ride.
