Pinetop-Lakeside Interpretive Trail
LOCATION: Northeast Arizona
We were traveling through the town of Pinetop-Lakeside (I guess the towns got married) when I noticed a sign for the Mogollon Rim Interpretive Trail. I might not have noticed it, accept it features a huge wheelchair dude on the sign. This brings a new meaning to the phrase, nature is calling.
So we whipped a U-ee and found the parking lot. Like most of the paths in northern Arizona, this one is about 40” wide and made of asphalt. It’s a 1/3rd mile long and dead ends at the Mogollon Rim. You will work a little harder on your way out, and enjoy coasting back to the car.
This part of the rim isn’t as spectacular as you will find at the 622 trail, but it’s a fine trail if you are in the neighborhood. I doubt there’s much wildlife here as you are too close to roads and dwellings, but its scenic. There is some nice places to take photos along the trail, but I never quite figured out the interpretive part of this trail.
