Prescott Overnight - March 27-28
Pete has planned an overnight hiking trip to Prescott for Tuesday-Wednesday 3/27-3/28. Hikes are planned for all three levels:
Day 1 -
B - - Constellation & Willow Lake (8+ miles/1700)
C+ - Willow Lake extended (7 miles/1400)
D - - Willow Lake (4-4.5 miles/500)
Day 2 -
B - - Granite Mountain (8.3 miles/1800)
C+ - Little Granite Mountain Loop (7.3 miles/1400)
D - - Short version of Granite Mountain (4+ miles/400)
The C & D hikes start from the same trailhead each day. The Bs start from a different trailhead on day 1 - they do an extended version of the C hike, but the extension is in the beginning. Day 2 they go from the same trailhead as the C & D hikes.
There are several hotels near the square in Prescott with prices in the $70-100 range. These 3 have some rooms, but not lots of rooms so we might have to split up across a couple of hotels. They are all rated very good or better. I used booking.com.
Hotel St Michael just off the square (an historical hotel dating back to 1901, so the rooms are small, but lots of history). Full breakfast and free parking. It's across the street from Genovese's - the Italian restaurant we ate at last year (which I recommend again this year).
Best Western Prescottonian - where we stayed last year. free breakfast buffet and parking. About 1.3 miles from the square.
Quality Inn - Free breakfast buffet and parking. Also about 1.3 miles form the square (a couple of blocks from the Prescottonian).
FYI - I booked a room at the historical Hotel St Michael (about $88 with tax).
We'll discuss the trip at the meeting on Thursday, so bring your questions.
