Hiking Trails

Our Lynx Creek campus site on South Walker Road features three miles of hiking trails in the Prescott National Forest. We have complementary guides available for our two most popular hiking trails, the Stretch-Pebble Loop and the Highlands Trail Loop. Both of the loop trails have restroom facilities available for your convenience. Free parking is offered for easy access to these Prescott hiking trails at our facility. Our two trails connect to other hiking trails within the Prescott National Forest for visitor access to Lynx Lake and surrounding environs.

No entrance fee is charged but donations are appreciated. Leashed pets welcome.
