Prescott is home to hundreds of miles of designated trails; more than 15 distinctive named hiking, biking (and sometimes horse) trails wiggle through the natural scenic beauty of the community and the Prescott National Forest. Trails range in difficulty from “Novice” to “Expert”.

Download the Avenza app, which can be found in the app store on your phone or on the City of Prescott’s website, to view the geospatial version of the Trails and Recreation Map. It includes trails, bike lanes and routes, motorized trails, streets, parks and open space, and other recreational information.

NOTE: Remember, responsible recreation requires participation by everyone. Always be respectful of the wildlife and vegetation on public lands and be sure to check the rules for recreation ahead of time for the specific area you’re planning to visit.


New to hiking? Here is a simple checklist that can help keep new hikers from getting into a bad situation and require emergency assistance:  

-Bring more water than you think you need. Turn around before half of your water is gone.

-Dress appropriately. Sturdy shoes, shielding clothing, hats and sunscreen.

-Pack it in, Pack it out. Don’t leave waste behind.

-Know your abilities. Don’t push yourself too hard.

-Stay on designated trails.

-Take responsibility. Be informed. Plan ahead.

Host: Leighnor Aircraft
Date/Time: Saturday, September 17 from 9am-11:30am

Location: Leighnor Aircraft – 6418 Mac Curdy Dr, Prescott, AZ 86301

Fly an airplane, no experience necessary! All ages welcome! Age 17 and under need a parent present. Age 16 and up may be co-pilot. Experience the thrill of flying through a low-key, relaxed Discovery Flight. Our Certified Flight Instructors will guide you every step of the way. 


$195 – 1 passenger

$245 – 2 passengers

$295 – 3 passengers

NOTE: Leighnor Aircraft waiver will be signed on-site.


-Flights are conducted in 2 or 4 seat, single-engine propeller-driven aircraft in which the instructor and student will sit side-by-side. They are meant for flight training and are a safe, reliable airplane for your Discovery Flight. 

-Arrive on time at 6418 Mac Curdy Dr, Prescott, AZ 86301. You’ll be briefed for about 15-20 min., fly for around 60 min., and then allow for time for photos in front of the airplane. Full experience is 1-2 hours. 

-Your friendly instructor will ask you questions to see what your level of interest is and give a complete preflight safety briefing, discuss the flight route and what to expect. Talk to your instructor and let them know what direction you would like to fly. If it is within range and does not violate any airspace restrictions, they’re usually happy to oblige. Note: We are unable to do air tourism flights of any kind at this time. 

-After takeoff, when the instructor has maneuvered to a safe altitude and to an area where you can practice, your instructor will demonstrate how to do basic turns, climbs, and descents, and will let you control the aircraft. It’s always dependent on your level of comfort. 

-Turbulence is usually not an issue, since Discovery Flights are conducted on calm days and  instructors will steer clear of choppy weather, but turbulence isn’t entirely predictable, but don’t be alarmed.

-Headsets are worn to reduce the cockpit noise and to communicate with each other. Only those in the aircraft will hear you speak. 

-Even experienced pilots can get queasy, it can be a side effect of flying. If you feel nauseous, tell the instructor and he’ll get you on the ground as quickly as possible, where you’ll feel better almost immediately. 

-You will receive a student pilot’s logbook with your Discovery Flight logged at the completion of your flight. Your instructor will discuss next steps if you are interested in more flying.

Our class is only 10 students to ensure a low student-teacher ratio and close, personal attention, so register today to ensure your seat.
