Goldwater Lake Trail

Goldwater Lake Trail

Our 3.2 mile loop hike yesterday took us clockwise on the following trails: Goldwater Lake Trail #396 from the parking lot near the White Spar Campground, Hidden Valley Trail #374, Banning Creek Trail #81, and returning on the Old Schoolhouse Gulch Road #67. The trailhead was at an elevation of 5,620 feet and rose to 5,930 feet. The Goldwater Lake Trail is part of the Prescott Circle Trail. We met a few mountain bikers as we wound through the pines. Two motorized bikes passed us on the Old Schoolhouse Gulch Road near where an older woman was sitting on the trail taking closeup photographs of wildflowers. This was our second hike as part of this year’s “Take a Hike!”
