Mogollon Rim Interpretive Trail is open

The Mogollon Rim Interpretretive Trail, more commonly known locally as “The Overlook Rim Trail,” is open. The trail, located along State Highway 260 between Show Low and Lakeside, approximately three miles northwest of the Lakeside Ranger District office, opened on June 15. The paved trail is one mile, a half mile out and back. The trail easement is on private property and users are cautioned to enter the property at their own risk and to stay on the designated trail. According to owner Brett Cote, State Forester Jon Orona, who is in charge of the firewise management project on the property — which is the reason the trail has been closed — gave the all-clear to Cote last Wednesday. Cote said, “There is some residual firewise activity to be completed this fall, but no future closures are planned at this time.”
