Next up on my trail running exploration of Prescott was the Centennial Trail. This trail was built in 2012 in recognition to the 100th birthdate of the State of Arizona. The Centennial Trail meanders through the boulders and canyons, with panoramic views of the City of Prescott, Rodeo Grounds, Thumb Butte, and Granite Mountain. Petroglyphs are a feature of the trail.
This trail is another very technical trail that has been cut as a narrow corridor, snaking it’s way through the maze of giant boulders in a deeply fractured landscape. Once you get relaxed and comfortable with the trail you can run it fairly quickly since it increases and decreases elevation throughout the entire route.
