The Watershed Trailhead on Senator Highway should be familiar to many of our
members. Until this year, it was always the starting point for the popular Goldwater
Lakes trail. Apparently, though, the club has never hiked east from that point on
the Watershed Trail itself, so on this hike we’ll see what it’s like.
Bring your thirst for adventure and discovery. Although it follows the Prescott Circle trail, there’s not a lot of information about it on the Web, so our plan will be to follow all or part of these component trails:
• Watershed #299
• Seven Mile Gulch #9854
• Ranch #62
• Boy Scout / Turley #126
deciding at each intersection which direction looks more interesting. Then, when we reach about the 5-mile mark, we’ll turn around and backtrack.
All these trails are rated Moderate, and all are in the pines.
• Sturdy hiking boots
• At least 3 liters of water
• Hat, sunblock, sunglasses
• Lunch or snacks
• Hiking Poles
