I thought this would be a pleasant walk past some petroglyphs and a lake, then a separate spur-trail to a park-regulated hilltop ruin. I was partially right: pleasant walk past the lake but I missed seeing any petros and I ended up just bushwacking up the hill as part of the loop.

The little research I'd done made me think the trail passed the petroglyphs but going back now and reading a 2010 triplog indicates that's no longer true. Oh well. The trail is mainly on ridges, I'm guessing the glyphs are down in the gulch.

It was a cool and drizzly day and I hadn't been to Prescott for a while and I enjoyed the trail walk. As I was completing the loop I noticed I wasn't far from the hilltop ruin so I just bushwacked up to it from the east (there is a parking area and trail from the south). The National Forest folks have gone to some trouble to prepare the ruin for tourist visits by constructing a wooden viewing platform with some placards. The ruin itself is not great: maybe 10 collapsed rooms, overgrown so its a little hard to see anything.

Noticed several groups of people poking around in Lynx Creek near my parking spot. They were panning (gold?) and looking in creek side holes - must be stuff to be found.
