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.

What Acessing Arizona Is All About

Accessing Arizona is primarily designed for people who are looking for wheelchair accessible events, locations and activities. If you have paralysis (paraplegic or quadriplegic), Muscular Dystrophy, Spinal Bifida, or if you are an amputee, Accessing Arizona has information about an active lifestyle.
If you are traveling to Phoenix, Tucson, Flagstaff, Sedona or the Grand Canyon, the site offers insight about the accessibility. We cover trails, lakes, state parks, national parks and just about anything claiming to be handicapped accessible. The site also covers sports and recreation in Arizona.
From racing to rugby, from basketball to sled hockey, we cover all the local sports teams. Note: All photographs and essays are copyright Accessing Arizona, unless noted otherwise.
