Arizona Trailblazers Hiking Club
Storm Trails Day Hike
when October 12, 2023
Trip Report : April 13, 2021
where Prescott
the hike     The city of Prescott purchased 160 acres of land containing the Storm Trails in January, 2018. Design and construction started in February, 2018.
    These relatively new trails showcase boulder fields, balanced rocks and impressive views of Granite Dells, Glassford Hill, Watson Lake and Granite Mountain.
    Begin at the Peavine Trailhead on Sundog Ranch Rd. Head North on Peavine for 1.5 (ish) miles. This trail is a wide dirt and gravel road running parallel to the railroad tracks.
    As Watson Lake begins to come into view we’ll see many species of birds, including Blue Heron and possibly Redtail Hawks.
    These trails are well signed so we'll traipse around and enjoy the interesting rock formations which can remind one of Bedrock and Fred, Wilma, Barney and all.
We'll stand on top of the rocks for a "Yabba Dabba View" of the lake.
    Neil Dennis will lead this adventure with Billie Horn as co leader, trail sweep etc.
    Follow us back in time where, with a good memory and a little imagination, we may find ourselves in Bedrock with the likes of Fred and Wilma, or Betty and Barney. We’ll be up and down the huge boulders to places like “Yabba Dabba View” where you will want your camera handy.
    This hike is a real treat, especially for those who have never been to Watson Lake and the Granite Dells.
