Hike 104 with Denny and 274 with Joe had us on Act 2 of 3 for us on the Prescott Circle Trail.

Perfect weather and many first time trails for me.
All of these trails for the most part are impeccably kept.

Javelina #322 starts on a nice smooth ole road that meanders through the pines and an old homestead.

Garden Grove #392 is much better in the spring with the trickling creek next to you, but is still very nice.

Potts Creek 327 and Cold Springs 393, both have some real pretty areas, especially around the Camp Stein area.

Aspen Creek trail #48 is a gentle climb through the pines getting to the Wolverton Mountain Trail #9415.

We went up the spur road to the Wolverton Summit. It affords some great views of the surrounding areas.

Getting to the Wolverton Summit was a little bit of a bushwhack for us. It appears on Sat. view , that someone has cut another option that we SHOULD have tried, but thought was going in the wrong north direction off the peak.

I've been on Goldwater Lake Trail #396 numerous times and I'll be back to that one. Just a beautiful walk through the hillsides with tons of shady pines, smooth roller coaster trails, and views of the lakes. It's a fun area to explore if you get a chance. It will not be without people though, for those of you that dislike humanity.
