I live across the street from the Mogollon Rim in Lakeside, Arizona. The drop is relatively gentle here, but it’s still awesome to look out over miles and miles of pines.
There’s a short handicap-accessible trail off 260 in Show Low, Arizona that I’ve walked several times.
My friend, Laurie Dee Acree, writes hiking books and is working on one of the General Crook Trail, which is by the Rim outside of Payson, Arizona. We met at the Mogollon Rim Overlook, about halfway between Payson and Heber-Overgaard on 260. It’s much steeper!
We checked out the trailhead there.
Then we drove across 260 and down to Woods Canyon Lake (www.woodscanyonlake.com) and hiked around the lake, which included hiking past a bald eagle nest they keep fenced off. I’ve kayaked this lake and walked part of the trail before. It’s a really pleasant way to spend a day.
