Perched on the edge of the Mogollon Rim, this visitor's center offers spectacular views of the forested mountains, lakes, and valleys to the south. Inside this diminutive log cabin, travelers are welcomed by a helpful, friendly staff as well as displays and information on topics of local interest.

Open primarily during the summer season, visitors will find a responsive staff available to answer questions about the area, informative literature, and gifts and souvenirs relating to the forest, history, and geology of the Rim. Many educational items are available for sale through Arizona Natural History Association, a cooperating not-for-profit organization dedicated to assisting public agencies with interpretation and educational programs and promoting general respect for the public lands in the Southwest.
