Mogollon Area Information
The Gila National Forest
The Gila National Forest has spectacular scenery ranging from high cool mountains with aspen and douglas fir to warm semi-arid lowlands with juniper, oak and cactus. It is one of the more remote and least developed National Forests in the southwest. Covering 3.3 million acres of publicly owned forest and range land, the Forest is the sixth largest National Forest in the continental United States. The Forest is also home to the first proclaimed Wilderness area.
Catwalk National Recreation Trail
The Catwalk National Scenic Trail area offers a beautiful picnic spot next to Whitewater Creek, a challenging one mile trail along the historic water line route from the 1890's, a trailhead access into the Gila Wilderness, a bird watcher's paradise and a sense of place that creates images of an earlier time.
Southwest New Mexico Birding Trail
The New Mexico Birding Trail is finally a reality. Several agencies have chosen more than 40 sites of the
most attractive birding locations throughout southwest New Mexico. A guide has been created
that includes maps, birding tips, site descriptions and contact information that should
help you easily identify birding sites. (Mogollon and the Catwalk Recreation Area are included in the guide for sites 14 to 17.)

The Apache and Sitgreaves National Forests
The Apache and Sitgreaves National Forests encompass over two million acres of magnificent mountain country in east-central Arizona. On the Sitgreaves, the major attractions for the visitors from the desert are the Mogollon Rim and eight cold-water lakes. The Apache National Forest ranges in elevation from 3,500 feet to nearly 11,500 feet and is named for the tribes that settled in this area. The area from Mount Baldy east to Escudilla Mountain is often referred to as the White Mountains of Arizona.
