Mogollon Rim Trails

Walk through history.. Native American or the 1870's of General Crook on his trip to blaze trails to conquer this land for America.  You'll find Indian ruins, springs, and General Crook's mile markers dotting the trails you explore.  It's vast, exciting and ever beckoning to adventurous spirits.

Recreation: Mogollon Rim

The Mogollon Rim is a rugged escarpment that forms the southern limit of the Colorado Plateau. It extends across the entire forest and provides excellent views within Plateau Country and Desert Canyon Country as well. Dropping as much as 2,000 feet in some areas, the Rim provides some of the most far-reaching scenery in Arizona. Views stretch from its rocky precipice to Four Peaks of the Mazatzals northeast of Phoenix.

Needless to say, sightseeing is a favorite activity along the Rim, but this forest area also boasts a historic system of hiking and horseback trails, a couple of picturesque lakes for boating and fishing, and backcountry skiing for wilderness adventurers.
