  • If you are traveling from Jerome to Prescott ( or vice-versa) and are up for a thrilling ride, take AZ 89-a and drive through the mountains that comprise the Prescott National Forest. Beautiful panoramic vistas of pine tree-covered mountains. It's not for those with a deathly fear of heights or winding mountain roads with hairpin turns, but for those who go, it's a visual treat.
  • Beautiful. I walked around Lynx lake which by the way is a runners paradise. I also panned for gold at the recreation area. The forest is clean and well maintained with lots of trails and lookout points.
