Goldwater Lake

Goldwater Lake

After driving past the quaint, well-maintained Victorian homes on Mt. Vernon Avenue in Prescott, AZ, we stayed on Senator Highway about four miles, parking at the trailhead for the Goldwater Lakes Trail (396).  We hiked about two miles on this segment of the Prescott Circle Trail to a viewpoint overlooking Little Goldwater Lake.  On our return we trekked down a side trail to Goldwater Lake.  Although the temperature was in the low 90s, this relatively flat trail through stands of thinned ponderosa pine provided glimpses of the clear water of the lakes on another blue sky day.  A few bicyclists were also enjoying the trail on the last weekend before fall.
