The asphalt and concrete trail begins at Lakeshore Drive and Navajo Drive, and travels north to Powers Avenue. It occupies the right-of-way of the Kinder Morgan company’s pipeline through Prescott...
Take the right fork to continue onto Iron King Trail.
After reading the reviews for this trail, we were surprised at the very lose gravel (?) and excessive mud. We were riding on a warm (mid-50s) day following a snowfall the week prior. The first 3.5 miles from the trailhead off of Prescott Lake parkway offered interesting views and geological features. The next 2 miles was in an area being developed for homes. Nothing special despite the signage talking about the loss of prairie habitat. We should have taken the left fork onto Iron King Trail.
The southern half of the Peavine trail presents some of the most spectacular scenery I've seen on a bike trail. However, from the 3-mile mark (where the Iron King Trail meets the Peavine) northward is pleasant enough, but nothing special. If you want to get the most scenery in the shortest distance, start at the south trailhead of the Peavine, go north to Point of Rocks and bear right on the Iron King Trail. Turn around after about two miles once the trail begins to enter housing areas. That would give you a 10-mile total round trip back to the south trailhead of the Peavine.
Also note that the junction of the Peavine and Iron King trails has only a small sign indicating which trail is which. By the time you can read it, you've gone past it. If you intend to stay on the Peavine, bear LEFT at the fork. For the Iron King, bear RIGHT.
Starting out in Prescott Valley can be a bit tricky as there building new homes in the area so the trail actually starts up the Santa Fe road and not at the intersection. (you can still park at the trail-head but you have to ride your bike up the Santa Fe road till it ends then cross the road and follow the sidewalk to the trail). Once you get past the houses and actually on the trail it's quite lovely, rolling grasses and beautiful Glassford Hill to start out then you will come up to the giant boulders and follow that into a bountiful boulder paradise to enjoy and take photo's. The trail will move forward and you'll have access to the back side of Watson Lake and some amazing views between the boulders, this will continue and you'll wind up coming to the Pevine trail-head. if you continue on the main trail you will go all the way to Hwy 89a. This should be around a 7 mile ride one way so make sure you have plenty of water for you adventure. There is a full bathroom and water fountain at this ending so you should be good to fill up for the return trip.
Moved to Prescott Valley April 2016. Rode my recumbent trike a few miles on the Iron King from the East end, which starts on the east side of Glassford Hill Rd, and runs along Santa Fe Loop road to begin with. Dual track - think dirt road with one lane, with washouts and small rocks scattered alonside it. Not a great biking/triking trail. Not good for pushing a baby buggy, roller blading, or even riding a road bike. Great scenery as you ride west toward the Peavine Trail, but keep your eyes on the trail to avoid potholes, sand, etc. Would be so much nicer if paved.
My husband and I have hiked this beautiful Trail for a year and a half(moving to the Southwest). We returned the other evening after a six month absence. I was disappointed and saddened by what we encountered.
Chain linked fences and a housing development. The GREEDY Land Developers wasted no time,did they? Remembering when on one side there were Pronghorns grazing,on the other side Cows. SHAMEFUL!!! We will not be returning to this uglyness.
Trail actually terminates at Maverick gas station unlike Traillink's description. From Maverick you can connect to Iron King via Bison, Antelope, Prescott East Highway.
Grinder hilly on the north end of town, very gradual uphill winding through town the rest of the way. Surface is suitable for trikes and wheelchairs, the north section is unfit for inline skating due to the gnarly hills but from the park onwards fine.
3/5 stars because you have multiple road crossings, but redeeming in that it's actually fairly scenic.
Love this trail for an easy day ride on horseback, very peaceful.
Unlike Precott Peavine the trail isn't used as much and the cinder is pretty think in spots. Fatbike users and hikers will like this trail but regular tires mush deep into the loose soil making for a heck of a chug on a regular bike.
dirt, but smooth enough to ride my recumbent trike on
I rode this trail with my mom and her friend and we absolutely loved it!! I love that there was a box car on the side, some rail tiles still in places on the side, the scenery, and the actual trail itself. This is a truly beautiful trail.
We rode this trail in March of 2017. This was all in part with the Iron King Trail. This trail is a simple short ride that has moderate hills and offers spectacular scenery throughout. The dells were my favorite. There is also a side trail near the West Trailhead that will take you to the opposite side of the lake, The view there is just as spectacular. The trail is in great condition and nominal traffic. A hidden gem in Arizona.
