Update

A gentle uphill with a fast and flowy ending

Jeff Combs

Overview

You can access this trail from the Lynx Creek Ruin Rd. just off of Walker Road. You can park at the trailhead or make this part of a ride incorporating trail 305.
This loop is a gentle uphill with great views at the top then a fast and flowy downhill back to the trailhead.

Description

From the parking area at the end of Lynx Creek Ruins Rd. ride across the rocky dry creek and pass the gate. Be sure to go ride approximately 50 ft past the gate then an immediate left.

The first portion of the loop is a gentle climb with a couple steep rocky section thrown in to keep yo on your toes. Be sure to look at the rock wall on your left as you climb as you'll see many petroglyphs.

Once at the top you get a great view of the forest that lies on the south side of Prescott. Then a fast downhill with multiple switch backs awaits you.

If you still feel like riding, try the trail counter-clockwise for an entirely different experience.
