his is a great trail for a hot summer day. Located almost entirely in the trees it includes a bit of climbing with little technical skills needed.

The trail starts at the White Spar campground just off of White Spar Road just minutes south of downtown Prescott. A winding climb brings you to a small overlook with good views of the mountains west of town.

Then a short downhill to the pond and the real climb begins. The first 1/4 mile is the toughest then it steps it's way to the saddle. Be sure to look off to your left while you climb to see Goldwater Lake. Then a gentle downhill through the trees and the final climb up to Senator Highway.

Then back down 396 for a great downhill but watch out for the blind corners as this trail can get busy on the weekends.
