Eventbrite - Groom Creek, Prescott - Fellowship Adventures Hike                         Eventbrite - Cancel Button 



Join us in Prescott National Forest, Groom Creek Loop Trail, TR 307 in Prescott.  Circling through the gently rising mountains south of Prescott, the Groom Creek Loop Trail offers both a tranquil hike among beautiful stands of timber and, for some, the promise of expansive views from the top of SpruceMountain.  The trail passes through oak and juniper, and one of the best ponderosa pine stands in the forest, with fir along the upper reaches.  It is one of the most attractive trails in the forest, offering a rewarding hike with beautiful trees and shade.  

The park is located about 2 hours from Calvary.  It is worth the drive.  Check out the park at USDA Forest Service. More information at Hike Arizona.


Groups will start hiking at 9:00 AM and everyone should be done by noon.  We will begin our hikes from the trailhead (on the left-hand side of the road and it is well signed).  Please plan on being at the registration tables by 8:00 AM so you can be assigned to your group and we can start hiking as soon as possible. 


Take I-17 north to exit 262 toward AZ-69 N/Prescott/Cordes Lakes Rd.  Merge onto AZ-69 N slight right onto Gurley Street to Mount Vernon Avenue. Turn left on Mount Vernon (which becomes Senator Highway) and follow the paved road 6.5 miles to the Groom Creek Horse Camp and 307 Trailhead. The Horse Camp is just 0.7 miles south of the center of Groom Creek. Trailhead 307 is east across Forest Road 52 from the campground.

There is plenty of parking in the immediate event staging area, but we encourage carpooling.  You can sign up for carpooling during the registration process.  For details on how carpooling works, see the Carpooling section of the "Things to Know" page.

Carpools will meet at Calvary central campus (west side by the mail boxes) – last carpool leaves at 7:00 AM.


Park entrance fee: None 


This hike will include 4 levels of hiking.  You will sign up for a level when registering.  The levels are listed below, or see levels of difficulty for more details.

Roadrunners – For the serious, go-fast hiker who desires the challenge of speed and distance (7 to 10 miles) and prefers to race past the sagebrush rather than smell it!

Coyotes – For the recreational hiker who desires energetic physical activity (4 to 7 miles) and the opportunity to stop and smell the sagebrush.

Prairie Dogs – For the casual hiker and families who want to get some exercise (about 3 miles) but will stop to enjoy the view and rest as they hike.

Geckos – For the person or family new to hiking or just coming back from a long time away.  They will do about 2 miles of relatively flat trail.
