Nestled within the pine trees and boulders of Prescott, Arizona’s iconic Granite Mountain, Granite Basin Recreation Area offers a variety of recreational activities from hiking, horse riding, rock climbing, fishing, and camping. I spent over 20 years traveling around Arizona and the southwest seeking adventure and the one fact remains that sometimes that experience can be captured right in your very own backyard. Responsible stewardship of our planets beauty is something we all should be aware of. This time of year visitors of the Granite Basin Recreation Area should be aware of the nesting Peregrine Falcons along the rock face of Granite Mountain. However you can can find plenty of adventure along Granite Mountain Trail #261.
