The Hiking Spree is a community wide event that 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 have become collector’s items.
