Senator Highway: The Old Senator Highway heads south out of Prescott and winds into the mountains for seven miles before becoming a dirt road. There are many turnoffs and trail heads on the road and plenty of opportunities for trail riding, hiking and camping. Considering that this trail is a major route through the Prescott National Forest, it is quiet. Even on weekends, the only sounds are the chirping birds, the breeze in the pine, and the persistent buzz of insects. Shady pines, prolific bird life, and the long meandering trail make it a pleasure to travel.

Located high on top of Cleopatra Hill (5,200 feet) between Prescott and Flagstaff is the historic copper mining town of Jerome, Arizona. Once known as the wickedest town in the west, Jerome was a copper mining camp, growing from a settlement of tents to a roaring mining community. Four disastrous fires destroyed large sections of the town during its early history, resulting in the incorporation of the City of Jerome in 1899. The ride over the Mingus Mountain from Prescott to Jerome is a beautiful one with views as far as the eye can see.
