Prescott National Forest Hiking Trails
Our Lynx Creek campus site on South Walker Road (off Highway 69 just east of Prescott Gateway Mall) features three miles of hiking trails. Both loops provide restroom facilities. These connect to other Prescott National Forest trails for visitor access.
No entrance fee is charged but donations are encouraged.
The best trail for first time visitors, those with young children, or for handicapped people. For everyone, it features the fantastic “Stretch Pebble Conglomerate” outcrop interpretive stop. Our guide offers interpretation on our ¾-mile handicap-accessible trail.
The Highlands Trail (442) is 1.5 miles and has moderate inclines and a 360-degree view of the Lynx Creek and Prescott Basin area at the highest point above the Center. Our guide offers interpretation of the unique geologic and historic features of the site.
