Granite Mountain

Granite Mountain

Yesterday we hiked a new to us portion of the Willow Lake Trail. We accessed the trail from a mid-point on Willow Lake Drive and headed west and then north almost two miles toward the Heritage Park Zoological Sanctuary. A snow-capped Granite Mountain was a first for us. We crossed a trail bridge for Prescott’s mile-high trail system with a dedication sign. We learned that “This bridge was constructed on July 23, 2005, in celebration of Mormon Pioneer Day, by 170+ volunteers from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.” We passed the tunnel leading to the Embry Riddle Trail that we have yet to explore. On our return we found the warmer temperatures resulted in a muddier trail. We are fortunate live in an area with so many interesting trails.
