Trek About Walking Club
If you're looking for a fun way to get outdoors this fall and meet new people who like to hike as much as you do, join the Prescott TrekAbouts! Guided treks around the Prescott area are held year-round, every Tuesday and Thursday morning. October-April hikes begin at 8:00am, with hikes in May-September beginning at 7:00am. Hikes vary in length and difficulty but are always FUN, and are a great way to learn more about the beautiful trails in our area. Register through the City of Prescott's Parks & Recreation Department for only $12 per year!
