Its called God's Country...lakes...mountains...The Mogollon Rim made famous by Zane Grey...The White Mountains...made green by ponderosa pine, gentled by cold waters flowing to the valleys below and far beyond. It is a physically challenging and rewarding recreational landscape. A place of spiritual renewal...and more...The Apache-Sitgreaves has 34 lakes and reservoirs and more than 680 miles of rivers and streams - more than can be found in any other Southwestern National Forest. The White Mountains contain the headwaters of several Arizona rivers including the Black, the Little Colorado, and the San Francisco.
The Sitgreaves was named for Captain Lorenzo Sitgreaves, a government topographical engineer who conducted the first scientific expedition across Arizona in the early 1850s. On the Sitgreaves, the major attractions for visitors are the Mogollon Rim and eight coldwater lakes. From the Mogollon Rim's 7,600-foot elevation, vista points provide inspiring views of the lowlands to the south. The Mogollon Rim, named after Don Jaun Ignacio Flores Mogollon (pronounced: muggy-own) who was the governor of the Province of New Mexico from 1712 to 1715, extends 200 miles from Flagstaff, Arizona, into western New Mexico.
