The Prescott National Forest Map produced by the US Forest Service contains the most current information on roads, trails,recreation sites, travel restrictions and contact phone numbers for the Prescott National Forest.
Recreation opportunities are diverse and plentiful. The forest offers the closest relief from the summer heat in the “Valley of the Sun.” Thousands of visitors each year come to camp in one of many developed recreation sites situated in the cool pines, to hike or bike the hundreds of miles of trails, to swim in the cool streams, and to interpret the rich forest history. Since winters are mild, many of these opportunities are available year round.
There are eight wilderness areas comprising almost 116,000 acres, including Juniper Mesa, Apache Creek, Granite Mountain, Castle Creek, Sycamore Canyon, Red Rock Secret Mountain, Cedar Bench and Pine Mountain.
