Natural Beauty and Modern Amenities at Forest Trails

Custom homes surrounded by gorgeous natural beauty line the streets of one of Prescott’s most desirable communities, Forest Trails.  Ideally located just minutes from Prescott’s famed restaurants and saloons on Whiskey Row, and all the shopping your heart could desire.  The Forest Trails neighborhood is perfect for those who love the outdoors but love the excitement of the city too.  The 250-acre development offers the amenities of the city life as well as the excitement of outdoor adventures.


The Homes

The homes in Forest Trails are designed to blend in with the natural landscape, with measured thought put into each custom home to ensure it fits into the unique terrain—because of this, you’ll never find two identical homes.  Forest Trails has approximately 400 lots and homes, with all homes varying between 1000 and 8000 square feet and lots ranging from 1/3 of an acre to up to 2 full acres.  Custom sites are still available, allowing residents to a unique single-family home that fits seamlessly into the tall pines and rolling hillsides.


The Community

Founded in 1985, Forest Trails currently has 400 established homes inhabiting as many lots, but there is room still for buyers to purchase a lot and build the custom home of their dreams.  The community is full of hiking trails, many of which lead right in to Prescott National Forest, and some that even lead all the way to the trails of Thumb Butte—it even boasts community tennis and basketball courts!  Forest Trails is one of Prescott’s most desirable locations not only because of its incredible mountainous views and adventures, but also because of it’s close proximity to all the amenities of Downtown Prescott.


Nearby Attractions

Forest Trails is set about four miles from charming Downtown Prescott’s town square—an old-fashioned setting with conveniences that are anything but old-fashioned.  Upscale retail shops, restaurants, antique stores, and art galleries line the streets of the downtown area, while biking, hiking, and equestrian trails surround the neighborhood itself.  Golfers will be excited to hear that there are three gorgeous courses nearby, while the outdoorsy types will revel in the outdoor prospects for Forest Trails residents.

With its close proximity to the downtown area, Forest Trails is ideally located close to the best shopping and dining in Prescott, AZ.  Residents can find all the best big-box stores and major retailers at nearby Ponderosa Plaza, with the more locally owned and higher end retailers residing just within the city limits.  The neighborhood is also conveniently located very close to some of Prescott’s most beloved restaurants—including LaBruzza’s Italian Ristorante, The Iron Springs Café, and the Dry Gulch Steak House.
