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.

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.

No Power Poles on Walker Road

People are concerned for the potential of starting a fire, similar to what happened to California multiple times.

There’s a new web site to explain what the APS has proposed.

Overhead Power Lines on Walker Road

APS has proposed installing overhead power lines on giant, steel power poles down Walker Road. They will be next to the road from Costco to Hummingbird Hill Road.

These lines will replace the existing lines that come from Groom Creek, over the mountain and through the forest. The new […]

Do You Have A Steep Driveway? Is Your House On Fire?

A little advice if you have a steep driveway, (and who doesn’t in Walker?)

Walker Fire was called to a structure fire on Friday morning. The process of fighting a structure fire typically involves knocking down the flame with water then looking for hot spots/heat inside walls or the ceiling.

That second step is done by using a thermal imaging camera and exposing the inside of the wall or ceiling.

One challenge we had with this fire that is very common to Walker is that the house was up a long, steep, narrow driveway with no spot to turn around.

A few months […]

Pile Burning Planned in the Prescott Basin on the Bradshaw RD

PRESCOTT, AZ, November 9, 2022 – Fire Managers on the Bradshaw Ranger District plan to take advantage of the moisture received and burn debris piles near Lynx Lake and in the Walker Road area. Ignitions are planned to start on Thursday November 10, 2022, and continue through Wednesday November 23, 2022, as favorable weather conditions allow. Fire managers expect smoke impacts to be light in the surrounding areas. Pile burning helps to reduce hazardous fuels in the wildland urban interface and increases ecosystem and community resilience.
