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 were walking in a lightly forested portion at the beginning which brought us to the rim of the geologic rim that runs from about central Arizona to southwestern New Mexico.

The vista at the rim was spectacular revealing forest of ponderosa pines as far as the eye could see.

This area has much historic significance because the rim was a fertile area for the pioneers and the Native Americans.

Although you won’t burn a lot of calories on this hike, you will learn a great deal about native flora and fauna and a bit of the story of the area. Not only good for a disabled person, this would be a great walk for a family with small children.

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 and instructive for those who do..

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 overlook on the edge of the rim. The pavement is in fair condition with some cracks and root-heaves but level enough for wheelchair use. When we visited in July, the views were rocky terrain and forest of pine and juniper trees with some grasses and wildflowers. A short bridge crosses over a small creek. It's an easy walk and good place to spot birds and small wildlife like squirrels and rabbits. It started raining so we had to hurry; we're planning to visit again soon when we can take our time.
