White Mountain Trail System

You’ll be spoiled for choice when hiking the White Mountain trail system. These multi-use trails allow for hiking, mountain biking, and equestrian use. The unique, interconnected system of urban trails ensures that you’ll enjoy a different experience each and every time.

History & Nature

The trail system began in 1987 with a goal of preserving non-motorized trails for recreation, and has been developed with help from the United States Forest Service ever since.

Things to Do

The trails connect the Town of Pinetop-Lakeside and the City of Show Low. Most trails are between 8 and 16 miles in length, although different options allow you to make the trail shorter or longer depending on your time, skill level, and abilities. It’s easy to customize to avoid trickier areas if you want, or challenge yourself if that’s what you’re after.

Each trail takes maximum advantage of the beauty and vistas of the area with extreme care given to preserving the land, vegetation, and wildlife. Landscaped urban trails will have multiple entrance points to provide easy access for residents and visitors alike.

Accommodations and camping are available in nearby towns and cities including Pinetop-Lakeside and Show Low.
