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.

Amazing Places: 3 sites of interest off Walker Road | The Daily Courier | Prescott, AZ

Interesting article in the Courier today about 3 “Amazing Places” off Walker Road.

Personally, I think every place off Walker Road is amazing, but he did pick three good ones in the article.

1. The Pink Car
2. The 100 Mailboxes
3. Blue John Mine.

I recently stumbled across the Blue John Mine. Have you ever been to it?

For the third Amazing Place (Blue John Mine) you have to leave Walker Road. Go past the mailboxes onto Pine Mountain Road (FR 9404H) for half a mile (going north). It’s a dirt road that is steep, bumpy and narrow in places (don’t try this […]

Another Prescribed Burn on Saturday, Oct. 28

Driving home today, I saw the sign that warned of another prescribed burn this Saturday, Oct. 28th.

The location was “Walker Road”, so I’m not sure where it will be exactly, but when you see the smoke, don’t report it.

It’s on purpose.

Fire managers on the Bradshaw Ranger District plan to burn 5 acres of debris left over from thinning projects adjacent to the Highlands Center for Natural History (T13N, R1W, S8) on Saturday, October 28; weather conditions permitting.
