We were looking for an easy hike. This was it! The Mogollon Rim Trail was just perfect. We ambled along a relatively flat trail, with 16 or 17 labeled spots along the way. (For about a half a mile the trail is wheelchair accessible.). We...More

You're right on the edge of the Mogollon Rim, The trail is flat and mostly paved and includes interpretive signs discussing local flora, fauna, and history. Interesting and informative-and the views are great. A nice little trail for people who don't really walk, and pleasant...More

We very much enjoyed the drive near the Mogollon Rim from Campe Verde to Pinetop AZ. Up mountain and down mountain. The Primitive Road was too rough to drive, probably difficult hiking also. More for ATV ing.

Sweet little trail with informative signs along the way. Partially paved for easy walking and wheelchair accessibility. The views on the southern part of the trail are beautiful.

The trail head is on the west side of AZ260/White Mountain Blvd. between Camp Grace and the Lion's Camp. There's a gravel parking area and a sign that designates the start of the trail. The first section (about .3 mile) is paved to a scenic...More

Super easy hike, and if you want to just do the first .35 mile of paved trail it takes you to an mazing viewpoint overlooking the rim!

Easy hike, with almost no elevation gain. Half is paved, other half of this loop trail is compacted dirt. Great for all ages! Wonderful views from the paved trail side of the loop. Took about 45 min to leisurely walk the trail.

We arrived too late to hike Thompson Trail as planned, so we headed over to the shorter 1 mile Mogollon Rim Trail. We arrived close to sunset and the views were just amazing. I'd actually recommend arriving about an hour and a half before sunset....More

I agree with another recent reviewer that this park/trail is showing its age. But the views are amazing. In addition, the "aging" signage is very helpful in understanding the Rim, how it came into being, and the plant life that is at that altitude. t's...More

Ponderosa pines and alligator junipers are the primary flora (we had never seen an alligator juniper, previously). Gentle, easy slopes, a short bridge, and views that go forever over the forest at the canyon rim. Beautiful site.

Poorly marked. The parking lot/trailhead is right off the west side of highway 260 (or White Mountain Blvd.) about halfway between ShoLow and Pinetop-Lakeside. It is sandwiched between two camps: Camp Grace and the Lion's... More
