Sky-high cliffs of pale limestone and sandstone give this spectacular natural wonder its recognizable color. Its shaded canyons, creeks and ledges, juxtaposed with brilliant blue skies and lush green plains, make for breathtaking photo ops of the American Southwest. Travelers can wander the Ponderosa Pine forests and revel at age-old growth here, or navigate the trails that follow Fossil Creek Canyon and Pine Canyon through impressive landscapes and breathtaking beauty. After exploring the Mogollon Rim, visitors can explore the nearby towns of Payson or Sedona, where red rock culture, Native American influence and desert life give way to an almost spiritual existence for residents.
Mogollon Rim is located in the town of Pason and stretches from Yavapai County to the border of New Mexico. The rim forms the southern edge of the Colorado Plateau.
