Johns Tank Trail #94

This trail is located next to one of Prescott National Forest’s busiest recreation areas – Lynx Lake.  It was designed with hikers in mind and does not allow bicycles, horses, or off-highway vecicles.
This is a very pleasant hike that takes you uphill from Lynx Lake, escaping into a remote setting. Hiking is mostly in the shade of oak, juniper and pine forest. Be ready for up hills and down hills!
Hiking Time: 1.5 hours
