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 Prescott National Forest, along with all local entities, will enact Stage 1 fire restrictions at 8 a.m. Friday, April 20.
“There has been no appreciable amount of precipitation since the end of last summer’s monsoons and the little bit or rain and snow we received in January and February did nothing to relieve the situation,” said Pete Gordon, Fuels, Fire, & Aviation staff officer for the Prescott National Forest.
Much of the state of Arizona is in extreme drought with a forecast of below normal precipitation and above normal temps through the end of May, […]
Here’s the update from Johnny about this year’s Walker Day.
Looks like it’s only going to be a yard sale.
We are getting on this a little late, but we are planning to have some kind
of Walker Day fundraiser on June 16th. I only had a couple people offer to
help in any way with Walker Day, so we will have to do a smaller version
than last year.
The BIG yard sale is a must, so please start saving your donations. We will
start accepting them after May 1st and store them in the original station
building behind the new station. Please […]
They’ve been working on the dirt part of Walker road. They’ve been dropping dirt in the rough spots and pot holes, then grading over the top to smooth it out.
It’s like butter!
The data of up to 87 million people on FaceBook was improperly shared with the political consultancy Cambridge Analytica.
I know a lot of people don’t like FaceBook. They have privacy concerns or don’t want to it to be a time suck.
I get all that, but I love FaceBook. I’m careful what I post, but I use it every day, and will continue to use it.
It’s very useful for people in Walker. The Potato Patch group and the Walker Fire page have been valuable during the fire, or to find out snow and road conditions, or to get advice on services. […]

2017 Wow what a year!
It started off mild enough, but then at the end of February came the big wind that resulted in several days of power outages and hundreds of damaged and downed trees.
Then on June 24 came the Goodwin Fire. A fire, aided by gusty winds that fed on tall chaparral over land that had not been treated for almost 50 years. The fire caused the evacuation of Mayer and then later several other communities including Walker, Breezy Pines, Big Bug Mesa, Potato Patch and others. We owe […]

Hello fellow Walkerites…HELP!
The Walker Fire Department, (WFPA), still needs at least one more candidate
to step up and run for next years board of directors position, (starting
June 1, 2018). We have (3) members stepping down as of the end of this
term, and only have two candidates offering to help.
This is a great way to really serve your community, and without too much of
a commitment. The ideal candidate can attend most of the 1 hour BOD
meetings held on the second Saturday of each month at the fire station.
Please don’t sell yourself short. EVERYONE brings something to […]
We had the very rare experience of hearing sirens this afternoon.
A 4 wheel UTV misjudged a turn and rolled into a ravine between Walker Road and New Strike.
Walker Fire Department was on scene, along with Yavapai County Sheriff.
Neighbors passing by saw the accident happen and helped pull the driver from the vehicle, then went to call 911.
Another neighbor happened upon it a few minutes later and sat with the driver to wait for help to arrive.
It was an exciting Sunday afternoon in Walker, and a reminder to be careful out there.
I’m glad I live in a place where neighbors look […]
