Skull Valley.

This road trip will take us out Thumb Butte Road, along the crest of the Sierra Prieta Mountains above Prescott, down through Copper Basin to Skull Valley, and then over to Walnut Grove on the Hassayampa River, returning to Prescott via Highway 89. Along the way we’ll see incredible scenery, historic mining activity, the Skull Valley Historical Museum, the beautiful valley of the Hassayampa River, and learn of the geology, natural history, and territorial history of the area. We’ll also visit the gravesite of one of the Granite Mountain Hotshots, whose family are long-time residents along the Hassayampa. There will be a few short walks of up to a quarter mile, but no serious hiking. Activity Rating: 2
