Ask anybody in prescott where Granite Mountain is and they will likely point to an enormous granite outcrop, a familiar local landmark, just beyond the city limits. When you view the wilderness close-up, though, you notice that it consists of many weathered and rounded freight-car-size boulders stacked one atop the other. Some two billion years old, they have been molded over eons by wind and water. This trail guide covers an area with 3.5 miles of trails.
