Payson

Payson

Surrounded by national forest and replete with breathtaking mountain vistas, Payson, Arizona is an outdoor paradise. Creeks and trout streams flow from the Mogollon Rim above the city, while a 35-mile drive encompassing seven lakes provides numerous trails (hiking, biking and equestrian), camping, hunting and fishing. This natural beauty and rugged landscape is what attracted the late American Western Novelist Zane Grey to the Payson area.
