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. The community is great, with pancake breakfasts and other social events.

Internet is best by https://www.walkerwifi.com/. They are solid and dependable, with fast speeds and no data limits. Cell phone is best through “Call by WiFi” on your phone, through your personal router connected to Walker WiFi. Verizon does the best straight cell service, but it’s dicey. The higher you go, the better cell reception you get. TV is by satellite or streaming Internet. We have DirectTV. We are unincorporated, so the building department is through the county, not Prescott city. Water is from wells or hauled water. Wells can be private or shared by multiple parcels. There are a few companies that haul water, and a few more that drill and maintain wells. The higher the parcel, the better the view, and the farther you have to drill for water, and the more you pay for the well. Everything is on septic. Make sure you get a permit from the county, which will mandate set backs and other stuff. Trash collection is dumpsters at the fire station. You pay a yearly fee for the combination to the locks to dump your trash. http://walkertrashcollectionservice.com/ Mail delivery is at group mailboxes around the area. FedEx and UPS deliver to your door in most places out here. We personally have a PO Box in town for important stuff. That’s a personal preference. Here’s a list of people that provide services in Walker: https://www.walkercommunity.com/walker-information/ Here’s a list of all of the property for sale in Walker, houses and land, although you can filter that. https://www.walkercommunity.com/walker-real-estate-search/

Fire Season Is Here

PLEASE DO NOT SET ANYTHING ON FIRE. I think that’s the main message here.

Forecasts are calling for much higher temperatures this week with a slight uptick in humidity. Fire season started a little late down south but it has become a very busy season around the state.

New fires have been starting closer to our area with multiple fires over the weekend sort of along a horizontal line from New River over toward the Tonto National Forest. Please be smart and safe with any work you need to do and please do not set anything on fire.

Fire Season Update

Please don’t burn our forest.

Email from Roger, our Fire Chief.

Hi everyone,

Just a quick note as the fire season down in the lower elevations kicked off very quickly with new fires starting, seemingly every day. The fire danger down in that part of the state has become extreme.

For now, this appears to conflict somewhat with our spring so far having a cool first half of May with even a little precipitation. The front end of the traditional fire season for us has been mild which is great, but it is heating up and things are drying out as we […]

Let’s Make a Mine Deal – The Story of The Gold Paradise Peak Mine – Deb Thalasitis, Marybeth Hrin, Toni Denis | Prescott eNews

Abraham Lincoln was fighting the Civil War in 1863, when John Rutherford Walker discovered gold in Lynx Creek in Walker. A gold rush ensued, and Prescott was established in 1864 as a mining town. Abraham Lincoln was quoted later that year as saying “Don’t believe everything you read on the Internet.

There’s been a lot of emotion about this mine project, most of it based on hearsay and wrong information. People tend to get wrapped up about things on the Internet and things get exaggerated.

If you want to get upset about something, at least get upset about the […]

Walker-area mine comes under community scrutiny | News | dcourier.com

County, state and federal officials updated Walker-area residents about the Gold Paradise Peak mine during a gathering at Yavapai College Thursday night, April 18.

About 400 people attended the gathering to voice concerns about water pollution, traffic and Arizona metals being shipped off to China.

APS To Cut Power

When it gets windy, and conditions are dangerous for wild fire, APS may turn off our electric power for a period of time.

At the Basin Ops Drill, we were able to get just a little more information
about APS’ plan to cut power in the face of heightened wildland fire
danger.

The plan is to be proactive in terms of monitoring forecasts, isolating
potential wind events over the following week to 10 days and then letting
customers know ahead of time via email that the power could be cut on a
particular day.

They were clear that they don’t expect to need to cut the power […]

Lynx Lake Mastication Project to Begin on March 22

Prescott, AZ March 21, 2024- Crews plan to begin working on the Lynx Mastication project in the Lynx Lake recreation area on Friday, March 23 to thin approximately 95 acres in total along the Walker Road corridor where heavy equipment will be used to grind dead and down vegetation, shrubs, and brush beneath the timber understory.

No trail closures are expected; however, visitors are asked to use caution while recreating near equipment operating in the area. Approaching such equipment is very dangerous as the operator may not see you.
