Part of the Prescott Circle Trail, Javalina Trail #332 rises and falls over the hilly terrain of Arizona's central highlands. Exposed slopes of chaparral and pinyon-juniper woodland are interspersed with shady groves of ponderosa pine where a variety of bird calls can be heard ringing out from among the trees. There are nice views of both Thumb Butte and Granite Mountain--Prescott's most prominent landmarks. This trail is notable because it provides a route between these two features. As of July 2010, there are multiple unmarked trails on the south side of Iron Springs Road. This trail is the one that follows a portion of the old Santa Fe railroad grade, just past a locked gate.
This trail is open to hikers, horseback riders, and mountain bicyclists. Please be considerate of other users--slow down and know when to yield the trail. Refrain from using horses and bikes when the trail is wet.
Check out the Official Route and Triplogs.
Gate Policy: If a gate is closed upon arrival, leave it closed after you go through. If it is open, leave it open. Leaving a closed gate open may put cattle in danger. Closing an open gate may cut them off from water. Please be respectful, leave gates as found.
