“A gentle uphill with a fast and flowy ending”— Jeff Combs
This loop is a gentle uphill with great views at the top then a fast and flowy downhill back to the trailhead.
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.
