Circle Trail #332 rises and falls over the hilly terrain of Arizona’s central highlands. Exposed slopes of chaparral and pinyon-juniper woodland are interspersed with shady groves of ponderosa pine where a variety of bird calls can be heard ringing out from among the trees. Great views of both Thumb Butte and Granite Mountain. This trail is another segment of the larger Prescott Circle Trail.
This trail is a lot fun to run with a nice set of switchbacks over ridges and around river beds. Since the elevation is fairly consistent throughout the entire trail, you can pretty much run the entire trail with very little hiking required. Some parts of the trail are more technical with the standard Prescott trails boulders and granite rocks on the trail, but overall a nice smooth trail.
