Oaks And Willows Trail #3

Prescott, AZ 86305

Oaks and Willows Trail #3 travels through the heavily wooded George Wood Canyon, the western gateway into Juniper Mesa Wilderness. The trail connects with several others, offering hikers and riders a number of options for exploring this remote corner of northern Arizona.

Trail #3 works its way up from the north fork of Walnut Creek, offering a view of Aztec Pass, an important early pioneer route. As it heads for George Wood Canyon, the trail enters the Juniper Mesa Wilderness and quickly climbs the southwestern edge of Juniper Mesa. Continuing across the mesa top, Trail #3 intersects Juniper Mesa Trail #20, which runs east to Juniper Spring. From its intersection with Trail #20, Trail #3 continues down the Pine Creek drainage to Forest Road 7.

Most of this trail lies within the Juniper Mesa Wilderness. Motor vehicles and the use of any mechanized equipment, including bicycles, are prohibited. There is no reliable source of water at the trailhead or along the trail. Prepare for hot, dry conditions during summer, and pack plenty of water. Wilderness is an important resource and national heritage—please, leave no trace.
