(up the I-17 to Anthem - west side of the I-17). I will only wait 15 min.


HIKE IS RATED: MODERATE


THUMB BUTTE TRAIL 33 is 5miles RT located near Prescott, Arizona.

Listed as GORGEOUS andmoderately challenging just ten minutes from downtown Prescott in the Prescott National Forest.

The gorgeous trail lets you take a glimpse at both wooded and desert scenery. Along the way, you can expect to see plant life, including cactus, ponderosa pine, scrubroad, manzanita and yucca.

The first 0.7 miles or so takes you up on a steep, although paved path which we take to just below the top of Thumb Butte, a volcanic plug. Gaining elevation to 6,000 feet. Steep andexhilarating views.

Reviews: "The hefty climb is well worth it for the panoramic views"

"Although the climb up is a bit challenging, beginning hikers should have noproblem asthere are manyplaces to rest."

- Since the age range of our group variesfrom 55yrs to 72 yrs, we should try to help each other enjoy the hike.

- Please do your best to help those who need ahand, an arm, or a voice of encouragement to complete the hike. Those who race are missing the point of our group. We want to savor every moment, everyscenery and every friendly voice and friendship we make on our hikes. Let's cheer on eachother !

P.S. I spent about a couple of hours today to find a hike all of us would enjoy - from those who are more agile and aggressive to those who are not so aggressive. If we cheer each other on and help each other, this will be a great, fun experience for all! Thank you, Lisa .
