Route Description for Peach Orchard Trail
Peach Orchard Trail is a great little hike through the forests near Payson, with views of the surrounding hills and lots of local wildlife to spot. This hike is a nice quick trip and it’s easily accessible from the golf course.
While this is an easy route overall, there is one section that wouldn’t be suitable for very young kids or hikers with mobility challenges. It’s a steep, rocky hill with loose footing that you’ll either need to ascend or descend. If you want to skip this, do one side of the trail as an out and back instead.
From the trailhead, take Peach Orchard Springs Road to where the trail splits. We recommend going clockwise so you can climb up the steep, rocky section. Going down would be much more challenging. Stay left, taking another left before the Orchard Tank and climbing up the hill. From here, loop back towards the golf course, enjoying the view from atop the hill.
