Even though school is beginning, summer isn’t over yet and the Mogollon (pronounced muggy-own) Rim Interpretive Trail is a easy hike for the whole family and a perfect introduction to the White Mountains of Northeastern Arizona.  The first half mile is a paved trail for wheelchair accessibility and ends with a spectacular view of a forest of pine, manzanita, juniper and pinion dropping into the rim country. On a clear day you can see forever!  If you continue on,  a dirt trail loops back another half mile to the parking lot.  Interpretative signs follow along the entire mile.

Directions:    From Navopache Medical Center, (Cub Lake Road) in the town of ShowLow,  travel 1.5 miles south on Highway 260 till you see the Rim Overlook sign.  Turn right.  There is plenty of parking.
