Welcome to Walker Community!
Located in the Bradshaw Mountains, south of Prescott, AZ, Walker Community is an old mining district, filled with history. It’s named after Joseph Walker, mountain man, explorer, and guide. He led a party to this valley to discover gold in the summer of 1863.
Today, the valley is filled with rustic cabins and elegant homes. There’s a vibrant community of people here, with an active social calendar. Some live here full-time, while others have second homes here.
Everyone loves it here.

Walker received just over an inch of rain on Valentines Day. It rained all day long, from the middle of the night before, through to the evening.
Lynx Creek was running strong, filled with all of the rain water run off, as well as the snow melt from the previous days.
There was a lot of water across Walker Road, enough to wash under the edge of it in one place, and push debris across the road in lots of other places.
Here are some photos from the next morning.

Contractors have been busy finishing up 1,500 acres of mastication on the west side of Walker Road between Ranch 62 Trailhead and Seven Mile Gulch Trailhead. Weather permitting work will be completed next week.
They will then move their heavy equipment south on Walker Road and start work to thin approximately 400 acres in and around the Lynx Lake Recreation Area. A new release will be sent out when we have a start date with information on trail closures, road closures and day-use areas affected.
At the same time, hand thinning operations on an additional 500 acre […]
It started snowing this morning and is just stopping now, about 4:00pm.
I measured 3 inches out there on our deck railing.
The roads aren’t bad, but it is cold. If your pipes will ever freeze, now is the time.
Drive careful out there.
This week, Christmas had an impact on our trash collection service.
It wasn’t collected and the dumpsters are overflowing. As of right now, on Saturday morning, they still haven’t been emptied. See email below.
I’m sure they will be soon.
Update from Bill:
We’ve made a trip to the dump with the garbage that was on the ground. I’ve parked my white dump trailer across from the dumpsters. Please use the trailer if you have to leave your garbage before Best Pick shows up. I’ll try to watch and empty the trailer if it gets full.
Thanks, Bill, for taking care of […]
Just a reminder that winter is upon us. The weather has gotten really cold this last week or so, and will be getting colder in the near future.
Make sure that your cabins have been winterized if you don’t live here full time.
Our neighbors came up for the weekend yesterday and found frozen pipes that plugged the water supply for the whole house. They had to run to a hardware store to buy heat tape to get the pipes unfrozen and water restored.
January is next week, so be ready.
Agenda for the 12/8/18 BOD Meeting is now posted at:
