The zoo is a great place to see local wildlife up close. Photographers should bring their cameras to get the best shots of native species that dominate the southwest like javelina (peccary), or the Pronghorn. Both can be seen running about in the forests and plains of Prescott, Prescott Valley and Chino Valley. In fact, the proliferation of the Prescott area Pronghorn have led efforts by city officials to “share the wealth”, or success, with neighboring counties. Shortages due to human habitation have caused some Pronghorn populations to dwindle in southern Arizona. Relocation of several dozen Pronghorn may have a positive impact on other herds. Locals are split in their views as many enjoy the presence of North America’s fastest land animal.
Trails abound for the outdoor enthusiasts at the Granite Mountain Wilderness area. Locals can find plenty to do in the hiking arena. Both front and backside trails exist at Granite Mountain.
