Highlight: FR 141
FR 141 is a beautiful drive that cuts through the heart of the Mogollon Rim high country. Located in the vast Coconino National Forest, the trail provides easy access to Rim Road with its stunning views atop the massive geologic uplift that forms the boundary between the Colorado Plateau and the Sonoran Desert. The trail crosses grassy prairies, deep Ponderosa pine forests, and several canyons. With an elevation above 7,000 feet, FR 141 is in one of the few areas of Arizona that experiences a true four seasons. Summers are mild and the trail offers lots of camping opportunities for those fleeing the scorching desert heat below. Fall brings scattered color with aspens, oaks, and maples on the canyon floors. It is also the season that attracts hunters to the largest elk herd in the U.S. Deer and wild turkey are also plentiful and often seen as you drive the trail. Winter can deliver a thick carpet of snow to the area, ensuring a wonderfully green Spring. Enjoy the beauty of the area as FR 141 transports you from pavement to a myriad of opportunities to explore the Arizona high country.
