|"Take a Hike" Hiking Spree|
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 22 - November 29, 2012. Wooden hiking sticks, a collector's medallion and/or BPS-free water bottles are 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 Manzanita Outdoor.
Kickoff Saturday, September 21st at the Highlands Center
Details to be determined for 2013. Stay tuned!
Stay in shape year-round for the Hiking Spree by doing our self-guided walks (Volksmarches) from the HCNH around Lynx Lake and on to the Lynx Creek Ruin. These three- and six- mile American Volksport Association walks have been enjoyed by people from the U.S. and abroad. Just ask for the “walk box” in the Benson Family Nature Store.
TrekAbout walking club is organized and led by the City of Prescott Recreation Department, YMCA, and Yavapai County Health Department. Group treks are held every Tuesday and Thursday and walk many of the Hiking Spree Trails. The enrollment fee is waived for Spree participants during the Spree season.
