Arizona Trailblazers Hiking Club
Peavine Trail Day Hike
when Saturday, April 17, 2021
where Prescott
the hike     Peavine trail is located in Prescott, Arizona. This is a relatively flat and wide trail with lots of historic value. It only has 460 feet of elevation change, but it is beautiful and scenic. The trail starts at an industrial area passing the edge of Watson lake. It offers an outstanding view of Watson Lake and Granite Mountain.
    The trail was originally built by the Santa Fe Railway in 1893, where it was used as a railroad, later it was converted into the trail that we have today. The Peavine Trail connects with the Iron King Trail and a few other side trails. The club has not done this hike before, so it will be an exploratory hike.
    If anyone wants to volunteer as deputy leader, I will offer a short version of the hike.
