Nothing seems to be more relaxing than kicking back in camp and listening to the relaxing sounds of nature and the wind singing in the tops of tall pines. Hospital Ridge is all about that camping experience. Each little spur trail offers a shady, secluded getaway. Squirrels chatter and gather pine nuts for the winter. Jays and ravens watch your camp with an envious eye, ready to swoop in and take away a trinket or the snack you temporarily abandoned. Elk bugle deep in the forest of pines, spruce, and fir. Shy deer slink past your camp, pausing only for a quick look before scampering away. Hospital Ridge is located in the remote eastern section of the vast Coconino National Forest. Sitting atop the Mogollon Rim, the higher elevation makes for pleasant summers away from the desert heat below. Not far away is the historic Buck Springs Cabin, sitting beside its lovely alpine meadow. Make the time to visit the site. It's definitely worth it. Maybe Hospital Ridge got its name because a little time there will definitely decrease your blood pressure and stress level. Go try it.
