This trail located in Granite Basin area is an alternative route to a section of Willow Trail #347 in its southern stretch. Ho-Kay-Gan trail diverts from Trail #347 behind the namesake subdivision, crosses the wash and goes uphill with some switchbacks to the saddle that is exactly half way. There it meets the powerline and joins the old jeep road that goes along the hill slope to get back to Trail #347 about 0.15 mi before junctions with Trails #346 and #322.

    Prescott Circle Trail - Act 3
    The final leg of our 58 mile loop around Prescott, started at the Peavine TH in the low 40's.

    The low morning sun cast intriguing shadows on the rocks and trees around Watson Lake. The lake was busy with waterfowl of all types. Willow Lake was just as thick with ducks and geese.

    We climbed out of Willow Lake, to Emery Riddle and an RC plane doing aerobatics.

    The middle section today was a pleasant mix of tall grasses, mixed conifer, rolling hills, and long views.

    After lunch we made the final push ending in a gorgeous stand of pines.

    It was great catching up after five weeks away from the gang.

    Good times gentlemen :y:
