Health and Wealth TEAM’s featured “trails to health” trail takes us to Willow Lake in Prescott Arizona.
From Prescott travel north on US 89, go west (left) onto Willow Lake Road at the Watson Lake/Willow Lake Road roundabout there is a parking along side the road in a little over half a mile on the north side.
This out and back trail totaling 4.6 miles is an easy trail, mostly level. There is a loop around the lake with the east side being a little more difficult which we have hiked in the past. Because of the water level being higher this year than it has been since I believe 2008, we elected to not attempt the loop this time.
View of the Dam from the south.
Views of Granite Mountain to the west.
Bridges make biking easy.
You can hook up to the Embry Riddle trail by going left under Willow Creek Road. This is also our turn around point today.
