We have 4 lakes within 20 minutes of our cabin. Show Low Lake is the closest, just a 4 min drive from our cabin.  Many of the nearby lakes offer kayaks, canoes, pedal boats, paddleboards & fishing boat rentals.  

White Mountains Trail System consists of 200+ miles of trails for hikers, mountain bikers, equestrians & trail runners in the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest.  One of the most popular 1 mile trails, Mogollon Rim Trail is located about 1/2 mile from our cabin.

The Maverick Trail provides several motorized trails within minutes of our cabin.  

Geocaching is a great way to explore your surroundings using a GPS enabled device (iPhone or Android). Think of it as a modern-day treasure hunt. You’ll be amazed at how many geocaches are out there (over 2.5 million worldwide). We have at least 12 geocaches within a mile or two of our cabin and several more throughout the area. It's a fun activity for the entire family.
