We headed out early to hike at Prescott Park today where we hiked a newly named old-new trail and a newly named new-new trail.

Once at the loop road, we turned left and hiked the loop road past the rock quarry till we came upon another trailhead sign for the "Greenhorn Trail". We had seen this trail our last hike here, but there was no info on where the trail went or how long the trail was. Now that signage and info is listed. As a matter of fact, there are now large map postings all around Prescott Park that show the new trails as well as the proposed 3 trails to be built in May 2017.
The Greenhorn trail switch-backed us down to where our car was parked, so it was a nice way to finish our hike of 6.1 miles. When we did get done, there were parked cars all the way from the gate back to the power plant area -- for those of you not familiar with Prescott Park, that is quite a few cars -- maybe 60-70? So join the crowd (or go early and beat the crowd) and get out to Prescott Park to try some of the new-new and old-new trails instead of hiking the loop road. The wildflowers await you!
