In April 2022 we visited the Mogollon Rim (pronounced muggy-on, which Amanda was personally challenged to remember) in Northern Arizona, embarking on the ~45 mile Rim Road for a sunset drive. With a carload of snacks, water, and and full tank of gas, this drive is an incredible experience! Allow about 2.5 hours of drive time one-way, or bring your gear and camp off the road for a fantastic off-grid overnight excursion. As always, be responsible, respectful, and aware.
Do you want to see some of the most far reaching scenery in Arizona? Stand atop a 2,000-foot drop of the Mogollon Rim and get ready to take in some truly amazing views spanning from pines to desert.
History & Nature
Stretching 200 miles from Yavapai County to New Mexico, the Mogollon Rim provides breathtaking views overlooking an expansive forest of pine trees. The rim is a true geological wonder hosting sedimentary, volcanic and metamorphic rock dating back to the Precambrian era.
