This trail starts across the street from the Thumb Butte parking lot and heads directly up to the base of Thumb Butte. The trail is paved with asphalt all the way to the top and then turns into dirt from the top to the intersection with trail 326. The trail is steep with switchbacks and incredible views of Prescott and the surrounding mountains. There is another, more gentle path (trail 33) if you turn right at the Y near the start of the trail.

Access Info

From the Thumb Butte parking lot, head across the street and stay to the left at the Y.
