Great flat trail

Used to be a railroad track. Converted to a flat hiking/bicicling trail, with great views of the lake. Great for walking your dog. Lots of flat rocks and some benches for resting.

this trail is one of the more pleasant semi-urban trails you may ever find. so why am i telling you about it? because 99% of people will not get off their dead ones to walk five miles to see some fabulous real estate. what makes this so special is that the trail loops one of the rare riparian areas of...

What a great way to spend a morning riding among the Dells and a chance to see turtles sunning themselves. It is an easy ride with plenty of opportunities to take the difficult singletrack along the rocks on the lake if that is your style. Wither way, it has something for everyone whether you ride or walk.

Amazing place to hike around, see the sites and things you may not even realize are there. Gotta do this at least once or twice.

The easiest trail I've been on in Prescott. The beautiful views of Watson Lake, the Dells, and all the wildlife add to the experience of hiking this historic trail. For use by hikers, walkers, runners, and bikers, there are several benches along this trail for those needing a quick rest or just to sit and enjoy the views. You never... More

Fairly long trail but level so good for novices. Go past the lake to get a nice view of the Dells. Some great photo ops and nice review of the history of the area.

There is parking at Sun Dog Ranch Road as well as on the Side Road exit off of... More

Easy riding, walking or running type of trail. It's mainly flat with awesome views of Watson Lake and the Dells rock formation. The trail goes to Prescott Valley (about 7 miles ) . Excellent for family rides and overall just beautiful!!

Prescott is lucky to have this great packed-dirt trail. Good for mountain bikes, runners, and walkers. Definitely bring a camera for the views.
