Overview
Apache Springs is a 4.71 mile one way hike with 30 feet accumulated elevation gain. Located 34 miles west-northwest of Prescott Arizona. A high clearance 4x4 vehicle and a competent driver is recommended to access the trailhead. May and October are the best months to enjoy this hike. This hike involes off trail navigation. Review triplogs, photos and the route to understand the terrain before heading out.


This off-trail route accesses Apache Springs (the source of Apache Creek) via an old road that is now nearly indistinguishable. From the springs the route continues nearly 4 miles along the creek until it reaches the maintained Apache Creek Trail #9905. This is an off-trail hike and several steep drops in the creek require short down-climbs or bypasses. It is non-technical and can be accomplished without getting wet if you choose. Surface water may not always be present during dry seasons.
