Schoolhouse Gulch
Prescott, AZ

[image:O flag] Safety Plan

The Schoolhouse Gulch event site is located in the pine forest surrounding the Senator Highway about 4.5 miles south of central Prescott. Similar to areas surrounding Thumb Butte, the Schoolhouse Gulch site is filled with varied terrain and water features that make interesting navigation challenges in the middle of a poderosa pine forest. Thorny desert vegetation is limited at elevations above 6000 feet, but you'll still find areas of thick vegetation. We recommend leg coverings and long sleeves.
