Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Among the more interesting geological features of the Prescott area are the exposed boulders and buttresses of Precambrian granite. Well rounded by erosion, this pinkish rock is often rendered all the more colorful by lichen.

While most visitors to Prescott may enjoy the unusual formations of the Granite Dells area just north of town, hikers will find a whole mountain of this fascinating rock in the Granite Mountain Wilderness to the northwest. The premier hike in this wilderness follows the Granite Mountain Trail up its namesake peak."
