Although it is only half an hour from downtown Prescott, Almosta Trail #622 possesses a remote quality that encourages experiences of tranquility and solitude. Travelers are left to their thoughts and the subtle rhythms of slow-moving shadows, snakes, and scrub jays. This trail traverses a landscape of rolling hillsides strewn with granite boulders. Pinyon pine, alligator juniper, cactus, and scrub oak line the path. There are stunning views of both Granite and Baby Granite Mountain from various points along the way. While this trail connects with several others, many of these routes are impractical day hikes. However, the collective length of these trails creates outstanding opportunities for scenic horseback rides.
Expect hot, dry conditions and meager shade during the summer months.
