This community wide event takes place each fall and can be completed at participant’s own pace. People from all over the state come to Prescott to hike 8 out of 12 trails within the Prescott National Forest and the City of Prescott between September and December. A collector’s medallion is available for purchase when completed brochures are returned to the Highlands Center. Medallions are newly designed each year to reflect some special aspect of Arizona’s natural history and are quickly becoming collector’s items. Completed brochures are entered into a drawing to win a $200 gift card from The Hike Shack.
Hike at least 8 of 12 trails by Tuesday, December 12 to be eligible to purchase a specially designed medallion ($5) that can be mounted to any hiking stick. Return your completed form to the Benson Family Nature Store at the Highlands Center by Tuesday, December 12 to enter a drawing for a $200 gift card to the Hike Shack.
Free brochures with the list of hikes are available at the Prescott National Forest office on Cortez Street and at The Hike Shack on Montezuma. Colored trail map packets are available at the Highlands Center for $10.00.
