Where

Join us at Granite Basin Recreation Area only a few miles from Prescott, and enjoy one of the many trails that serve the Granite Mountain Wilderness.  There are a number of remarkable vistas that offer breathtaking views of the surrounding topography.  Despite it's proximity to the city of Prescott, this area is a great place to see a diversity of wildlife.  You may see javelina, deer, foxes, lizards and a variety of Southwestern birds.  More information is available on the Prescott National Forest website Granite Basin Recreation Area.

There is camping available at the Yavapai Campground, and while not an organized part of the event, why not collect some of your Fellowship Adventures friends and make a weekend out of it? For details on how camping works, see the Camping section of the "Things to Know" page.

When

Groups will start hiking at 9:00 AM and everyone should be done by 12:30 PM. Please plan to be at the registration tables by 8:30 AM so you can be assigned to your group and we can start hiking on time.

Location/DirectionsFA - Granite Basin 3

Take I-17 north and exit on AZ-69 toward Prescott.  Stay on AZ-69 for about 34 miles and turn right on Sheldon St where the road forks.  Turn right at the end of Sheldon St on Montezuma St. This street turns into Whipple St when it curves toward the west, then it becomes Iron Springs Rd when it crosses Willow Creek.  (Don't you just love small towns!) Follow Iron Springs Rd 3 miles, then take a right on N Granite Basin Rd and go approx. 4 miles to Granite Basin Recreation Area.  Look for Fellowship Adventures signs.

Carpooling

There is limited parking in the park, so 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 mailboxes) – last carpool leaves at 6:30 AM. Carpool riders should prepare to cover driver’s expenses (gas and any other expenses incurred in transporting passengers to the event).

Cost

Park entrance fee: Prescott National Forest pass required - $5 per car per day. Available at site.

Hiking

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.  Remember to bring lots of water.  Although the weather is cooler and refreshing, your body still needs lots of water.

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.

Children

Children are more than welcome to join this event, but please read the Children section of the "Things to Know" page before you come. 

        Roadrunners - minimum age of 15*, if experienced

Coyotes - minimum age of 10*, if experienced
