Rock Stacker Trail Vista

Rock Stacker Trail Vista

The Granite Gardens Trail is composed of several interesting small trails. We started by climbing the Rock Slacker Trail which provided us with interesting views of slick rock we would later hike and a view of Granite Mountain. The Grotto Trail involves squeezing through a narrows. We prepared for our hike with walking sticks, hats, and suntan lotion. We forgot insect repellent. The mosquitoes kept make buzzing sounds around my ear, and I accumulated three bites on my right arm. We crossed the central valley and hiked up the slick rock where I circled the Castle Rock Trail in the opposite direction from our last hike in this area. We then exited via the Stairway Loop. At the base of the multi-step staircase we encountered three young people preparing to do some serious rock climbing. Sacred thorn-apples were blooming in several places. The Granite Gardens Trail is a unique spot to experience what makes Prescott special.
