Things To Do

In the geographic center of Arizona lies the “Rim Country”, so named by the overwhelming presence of the Mogollon Rim. The Rim rests 7,000 feet above sea level and presents a dramatic drop of over 2,000 feet to the communities below. It is covered in forest and grass land, and has been the home to Native Americans, cowboys, ranchers, farmers, hunters, fishermen, and nature lovers for centuries. It is a land of extreme beauty, natural endowments, and historical significance.

Before you plan your trip,

be sure to check for forest closures and restrictions from the Tonto National Forest Service.
