Lost Wall Trail

Lost Wall Trail

The Constellation Trails explore a section of the Granite Dells on the west side of State Route 89 just south of the Phippen Museum near Prescott, Arizona.  The name comes from a training flight crash on February 28, 1959 of a U. S. Air Force Lockheed C-121G Super Constellation.  During 2011 eagle scout Cody J. Walker worked to commemorate the deaths of five U. S. Navy crew members with the establishment of a bench, plaque, and remains from the crash.  We hiked the outside trails, including the North 40 Trail, the Lost Wall Trail, and the Rock Wall Trail.  The lowest elevation is 5.016 feet and the highest point is %,229 feet.  A few wildflowers were in bloom such as bluestem pricklepoppy, bull thistle, and beargrass.  We enjoyed the beautiful rock formations, especially from the Lost Wall Trail.  We are appreciative of the Open Space Alliance which purchased the land which made these trails available.
