A great family hike. The kids love climbing on the rocks and exploring. The adults loved the views and climbing on the rocks too. The weather was perfect. Other than getting pooped on by a bird and one kid being a little too adventurous and almost falling in the water, it was the perfect afternoon hike. I'm sure we'll be back with the kids.

Beautiful hike/run around willow lake today. Got out around 7 am and finished about 10 am. Not too bad of a time! Did some of the willow lake shoreline trail when I was finishing the loop out.

The final leg of our 58 mile loop around Prescott, started at the Peavine TH in the low 40's.

The low morning sun cast intriguing shadows on the rocks and trees around Watson Lake. The lake was busy with waterfowl of all types. Willow Lake was just as thick with ducks and geese.

We climbed out of Willow Lake, to Emery Riddle and an RC plane doing aerobatics.

The middle section today was a pleasant mix of tall grasses, mixed conifer, rolling hills, and long views.

After lunch we made the final push ending in a gorgeous stand of pines.

It was great catching up after five weeks away from the gang.

Good times gentlemen :y:

We brought the PCT Trail full circle. Today was the 3rd leg Bruce created breaking the PCT into 3 reasonable segments for day hikes. I enjoyed the entire circle. That said this would be the area least appealing to most.

Started out in the first cold weather morning of the season. 'Twas spectacular skirting Watson & Willow lakes. The tail end of Autumn Foliage had the massive cottonwoods screaming y(h)ellow in the low morning sun.

The majority of the hike along Pioneer Pkwy, Williamson Valley Rd and a local neighborhood would unlikely interest the masses. Personally I enjoyed seeing how it connected but wouldn't be jumping for a redo.

We hiked this man club style doing each segment in the direction of the most aeg. Which was an appreciated group tactic to keep me from crying like a baby👶

Thx to B&D for setting up all the necessary shuttles!

Joe suggested the PCT earlier in the year and Bruce and I jumped on board. Bruce and Route Editor broke it into three day hikes for us. This was our third and final section. This one had the most street walking but was still enjoyable with the company I had. The diverse terrain, Joe's singing capabilities and mirthful sense of humor, Bruce's cerebral conversation, and me to keep balance :D, I found hiking the Prescott Circle Trail quite entertaining. Dallin and I have very different capabilities and both did the PCT we were capable of :o :oops: . Even this one I had to do as a slackpacker. My hats off to Dallin and the real PCT.
Another enjoyable day with Joe and Bruce in the Arizona Outdoors... :y:

There is FREE parking on the parking lot off of Willow Lake Road (not in the park) or on Willow Parkway. To park at the park its $3 for an all day pass but free on Wednesdays. Noted for future trail runs.

The portion of trail/route between 12 and 3 of the lake is up and down in "The Dells"... there are lots of side trails and merging trails, at times requiring a little "route finding". However, in lieu of cairns, there are obnoxious white dots spray painted on the supposed trail/route.... I felt like Pac Man, eating white dots. But there were no ghosts chasing after me so there ya go.

Made a little side trip to summit the dam.

Water level of the res appeared down about 5 to 8'.

Future trail runs, will park on the free lot on Willow Parkway, then run clockwise to the dock and return and skip the dells portion.

The convocation of Deb and I spent, a portion of the day playin' in the bolder wonderland of The Constellation Trail System and Willow Lake.

I was surprised to still see the Cormorants in the Huge Cottonwood tree, on the Cottonwood Spur trail. I counted at least 8 nests in that tree with 16+. The roosting noises they make are a cross between the oinking of a pig and the noises penguins make. Kind of eerie actually.

There are endless possibilities out here, with the two lakes in close proximity to each other and all the bolder exploring you could do.

It got a little warmer than the forecast high I believe, but the breezes kept it tolerable.

Last summer I spent several hours tracing up the constellation trails. Driving by the area intrigued me so I looked it up online. Prescott is dialed in on being a trail friendly community and it shows in all the details.

On a whim I remembered and mentioned it to Bruce. He made it sing adding in Willow and Watson lakes. Prescott hadn't been an area that intrigued me much other than Granite & Groom. It's been growing on me a little over the years.

Yesterday I pulled a leg muscle. This seemed easy enough that I could hobble it out with a trekking pole.

The Constellation Trails are well marked with "you are here" maps at major junctions. The area was popular on this chilly April morning and on our return with more families. If you're an avid hiker with family/friends that get bored/whiny after a mile or two they might enjoy a little loop through this disneyland of granite.

Bruce sold the Willow leg as the boring part of the hike. We all enjoyed it more than expected. Temps and a little jaunt through huge cottonwoods on the peninsula did the trick.

Like all of the loop I'd never been to the famed Watson Lake. Seems like everyone gets a great photo here and now I know why. Aravaipa Running had an event going on. Ray and I held back a tad as Bruce hiked by the onlookers and through the finish line backwards. They cheered finishers coming in and didn't yell at him so we proceeded. A minute or two later I was standing at the postcard shot of the lake. Not a cloud in the sky when we started but they raced in just as we arrived. After marveling the scene I noticed the perfect snow capped San Francisco Peaks back yonder. Wow... forwards, backwards and upside-down Mom!

We lunched overlooking Granite Creek just before the dam. Squads were out enjoying the weekend lake vibes. After lunch Bruce escorted us over to the dam. Water shoots out from high above. It would be really nice on a hot day. Continuing on is a cottonwood paradise high above the creek. This would be another great area to take non hiking friends for an hour of piddling around as parking is near.

To make the loop work we needed to cross private property. Got lucky as a man was taking out trash to the garbage. Ray asked the REI shirted gentleman and our dream loop came true.

This hike put Prescott on the map for me.

The more I hike around Prescott, the more I like it. Joe tossed out a starting point (the Constellation trails) for this hike and Bruce filled out the rest. The result is a gem. A beautiful granite landscape dominates a big chunk of the hike while giant cottonwoods add variety and splendor along the way. The weather, while a bit windy at times, was perfect otherwise. We did have to improvise to connect the dots, but it worked out well. Lots of large swarming gnats chased us around the east side of Willow Lake on the return, but that was a minor inconvenience for a few minutes on an otherwise great hike.

Bruce and Joe, thanks for inviting me along. As always, I had a tremendous time!

Joe through a dart at the Constellation Trail system and said, come up with something. I didn't know anything about this "Little Gem" so I started downloading stuff. There are 11 trails in the Constellation Trail system, totaling less than 5 miles. So that wasn't going to make the drive to Prescott worth it. I'd looped Watson lake before and enjoyed the heck out of it. I'd always wanted to loop Willow Lake also, so it was on.

The Constellation Trail System is a wonderful group of of short trails through a boulder wonderland. Officially it's a self-enclosed system. But as we found on the way back, there is a trail that connects this with the Willow Dells system and Willow Lake. The Ron James Approach Trail does not show to connect on the maps, but it does. There is no signage and it's not obvious though.

All but the east side of Willow Lake looked like just a means to connect the loop, but then we stumbled on the Cottonwood Spur. Some of the biggest Cottonwood stands I've seen. `

Back on the Jan Alfano Trail and then we jumped over to Watson Lake, to do the loop there.

The highlight on this loop is the Lakeshore Trail and the Over The Hill Trail, taking you to the Granite Creek Dam.

A little road walk got us back over to the Willow Dells Trails.

Once again the hiking was great, except for 1/2 hour bug storm we ran through.

I really enjoyed looping these two Granite infested lakes, and the weather was perfect!

A great time out with the Squad.

On the day....A Gopher snake, Squirrels, Cottontail rabbits, Cormorants, all sorts of Ducks, Bluejays, Blue Herons, A hawk diving out of the sky right in front of us snagging a bird.

We hiked the Prescott Circle Trail portion of this loop... only the west to east on the south boundary of the park. We did not do the "loop". (I should add that we attempted the loop a year or two ago but the east end of the lake had flooded the trail and it was not passable. And on another occasion we attempted it from the North access and the rock climbing got us stopped.) We started at the dog park TH. This is an acknowledged birding area and there were folks with tripods and equipment (cameras? binoculars) enjoying the wild life from the edge of the lake. The east end where we exited, there is a milkweed patch where migrating Monarchs are seen (and counted) every year. The trail is smooth and wide and usually has very good footing ... some mud there though today due to recent precipitation. There is a gentle rise in the middle but it is for the most part the trail is fairly flat.

Watson Lake Circle Trail should be renamed “Links (not Lynx) Lake Circle Trail” :lol: :roll:

I did Watson clockwise and Willow counterclockwise. These loops are okay but in both cases the part in the Granite Dells is very cool while the rest is a bit monotonous. I saw very few people on either loop. Weather was great, a bit cool at the beginning but very pleasant later.

Very cool trail. The dells are unique, and a lot of fun!! This hike involves lots of rock scrambling, slot canyons, and scenic lake views. Much of the trail is marked with paint spots, as no trail would be decipherable. unfortunately, much of the last third of the trail is a bike trail that skirts a highway. I added the to smaller loops and had a combined hike over seven miles.

Got Lynn and the Sea Eagle kayak (check out :next: http://www.seaeagle.com/ ) out onto Watson Lake. Car show going on made parking "interesting"... :?

Made our way over to Willow Lake afterwards to check out the kayaking possibilities. It's not really an option.

Sam and I did this to continue our hike of the Prescott Circle Trail (PCT) which we began last year. About half of this hike is the PCT, with the rest forming a loop and providing more interesting hiking than the PCT portion. The PCT follows the south and west segments of this loop trail and is close to busy roads. The north and east parts are away from the road, are more hilly, and are more interesting.

There was plenty to explore here, my favorite part was playing follow the leader up a 50' narrow walled-in section of trail, rock walls flanked the sides. Wendi didn't like it because the leader was a snake that stayed a head of us, moving in an out of hiding in the tall grass that occupied what ever little remaining earth not occupied by trail.
There is also zoo, if interested, and an archaeological site dating to around A.D. 900-1100. We accessed the archaeological which are covered and signed to tell you what you're looking at.

I am not sure how much elevation change. Much of the hike is flat, some areas have some climb but never too strenuous. Great to bring dogs and let them swim.

I decided to try out the new Willow Loop Trail in Prescott. I found this new "loop" trail to be very pretty and at times rather secluded. It takes you on a trail with some ups and downs. I would recc. that a person attempt this trail when the weather is not so hot. There are some shady spots, but not too many.
I began this journey on the Approach trail, then headed toward the Red Bridge. Then onto the East Bay Loop and the East Bay Trail (East Bay Trail is new, and is now the "connector" that makes this entire loop.) Completed this loop with the Willow Lake Trail - Back to the car.
I did take my trusty dog "Lucy Rose" with me... But, if you have an older dog I would not suggest taking him/her with you. (Hard on the bones with the jumping and traversing on rocks.) Oh... Part of this trail is a "white rock" system. Very handy, and keeps a person with an "ease of mind" knowing they are "on the right path."
The following is a link to Willow Lake Loop Trail. (Hope it works OK!) Download the
map, and it will give you a clear view of this hike. PS: "Thanks" to all the volunteers who made this trail possible.. Like the, "Over the Hill" people. Ditto, for the Watson Lake Loop Trail... Which, I will comment on later:-)
