White Mountains

If you love to fish, this is the place for you. When you come to this high-country vacationland, bring a boat and your tackle box and prepare to relax. Even if you don’t fish, there are all-season activities like hiking, horseback riding and of course, golf. In the winter, there’s downhill and cross country skiing and ice fishing for the hardy. Much of this area is White Mountain Apache reservation land, with more than 400 miles of stream, 25 lakes and thick aspen and pine forests. The towns of Pinetop-Lakeside, Show Low, Greer, Eagar and Springerville offer their own attractions. It’s in this area that you can see the Mogollon Rim, a 2,000 foot escarpment that marks the edge of the huge Colorado Plateau and Salt River Canyon.

Historical and cultural sites in the White Mountains include Fort Apache, which was built in 1870 for U.S. Army troops charged with subduing rebellious Indian tribes.

The prehistoric Kinishba Ruins, southwest of Whiteriver, and Casa Malpais, north of Springerville, give you a chance to see what early Native American life was like. Enjoy

the Native American Art Festival and Indian Market in July, the White Mountain Bluegrass Music Festival in August and the Fall Festival in September.
