Turkey Creek/House Mountain Hike

Summary:  This hike puts you through fields, steep trails and ends on House Mountain

Challenge Level:  Hard

Hiking Distance:  About 3 1/2 miles each way (7 miles round trip)

Trailhead Directions:  From the "Y" (the intersection of State Route 89A and State Route 179) drive south on SR 179 for just over 7 miles. Turn right on Verde Valley School Road and drive for 4 miles and turn left on to Forest Road 9216B. Drive for about 1/2 mile to the parking area.

Description:  The hike goes past several "tanks" and approaches House Mountain. Along the way you cross Turkey Creek. We climbed up House Mountain for some wonderful views of the red rocks. It's a long step climb up to House Mountain.
