...the Granite Dells
Prescott, Arizona

The huge boulders of the Granite Dells are fanciful and almost whimsical formations that rise from the calm blue waters of Watson Lake. The short, easy trails over and around the boulders are well-marked and extend an open invitation to explore the fascinating area.

The Granite Dells are located less than five miles north of Prescott on Highway 89.

Watson Dam Trail
The Flume-Watson Dam Trail is another wonderful, fun hike that takes you through the boulders to a view of the backside of the dam. Though the view itself is not so picturesque, the walk among the rock formations is an easy challenge. It's a 1.5-mile loop accessed from the trailhead on Granite Dells Road.
