Juniper Tree

  • Distance

    Only 45 mins from our Campground

  • Information

    July 2016 Mangum Dental Hike-of-the-Month describes a hike to the Grandfather Juniper, a legendary tree with local fame. The Juniper tree may be the largest know Juniper in the world with a circumference measuring over 26 ft. at the base. The tree is estimated to be 1000 years old and was named one of Arizona’s “Magnificent 7” trees for 2015. The plaque at the base of the tree tells the entire story. In short, this tree was spared from the Doce Fire in June 2013 through the valiant efforts of the Granite Mountain Hotshots from the City of Prescott Fire Department. Later that month, responding to another urgent threat to homes and communities, 19 of the 20 hotshots tragically lost their lives. This hike is dedicated to their memory and this tree is a representation of how much we miss our 19 heroes.
