|when||Trip Report : May 20, 2017|
This was originally planned by Quy and scheduled for April 15.
She had to back out and asked me to take it over and reschedule.
Since I have never done this hike before, it is exploratory.
This is one of the most beautiful segments of Prescott Circle Trails. Whether you are hiker, biker, nature lover or photographer, this trail is for you. Bring your camera.
The hike is only 7 miles, but we will do this hike as one way shuttle hike, because I want everyone to have time to enjoy the great views of Wolverton Mountain, Thumb Butte, Granite Mountain, Indian Fort Respect Ruins, and the Prescott City. Most of all, Quartz Mountain is a great destination, with 360° views on top of a unique bed of quartz.
