Parks & Nature

Green Valley Park has a lake with a large sidewalk that goes around it on one side of the road and on the other continues with a music stand for outdoor concerts and events, a children's playground, our Veteran's Memorial and an open grassy lawn for playing ball and a hill that families use for sledding during the winter snows. A full figure 8 walk on the sidewalk around both sides of the park equal 1 mile. Fountains recirculate the water coming up in the center of the lake and there is a fishing dock. The lake is stocked with trout from the Tonto Creek Fish Hatchery. You will often see individuals fishing along the sides of the lake. We also have wild ducks, geese and a pair of cranes.

Tonto Natural Bridge is a natural arch in Arizona, USA, that is believed to be the largest natural travertine bridge in the world. The area surrounding the bridge has been made into a state park called Tonto Natural Bridge State Park. This natural bridge was first documented by David Gowan, a Scotsman, in 1877 while hiding from hostile Apache tribe members. Gowan was impressed by the location and persuaded his family to emigrate and live there. Gowan also tried to claim the land for himself under squatter's rights. Gowan family members lived near the bridge until 1948. Their lodge building survives to this day and is included in the National Register of Historic Places.

The Mogollon Rim is a rugged escarpment that forms the southern limit of the Colorado Plateau. It extends across the entire forest and provides excellent views within Plateau Country and Desert Canyon Country as well. Dropping as much as 2,000 feet in some areas, the Rim provides some of the most far-reaching scenery in Arizona. Views stretch from its rocky precipice to Four Peaks of the Mazatzals northeast of Phoenix. Sightseeing is a favorite activity along the Rim, but this forest area also boasts a historic system of hiking and horseback trails, a couple of picturesque lakes for boating and fishing, and backcountry skiing for wilderness adventurers.

The Pine-Strawberry Museum in Pine, Arizona, was opened in 1979 for the purpose of displaying artifacts related to the prehistory and history of Pine and its twin among the pines, Strawberry. All around us, the Mogollon Rim is a wilderness of ethereal beauty, carved majestically into unmatched proportions. Much of what is displayed in the Pine-Strawberry Museum today is in tribute to the dedication and hard work of our founding families. The museum houses prehistoric artifacts found in the land area of Pine and Strawberry Valleys and near plateaus, as well as artifacts actually bought and used by the earliest settlers to the communities.

Food Scene

The Cedar Ridge Restaurant is located at Mazatzal Casino- on the Tonto Apache Reservation. Go to the back of the building to find the closest door to the restaurant. The food and service are excellent. Prices are more reasonable than other steakhouses or establishments that provide salmon, trout, steak and other fine foods. They have a great salad bar and often have a buffet. There is great variety on their menu- even entrees the kids will like.

Old West atmosphere with a huge fireplace! Great for cold winter evenings. One of the finest steakhouses in the area. We're a little off the beaten path but well worth the added journey. Serving the highest quality steaks and seafood in the region we pride ourselves on our down home attitude and eclectic nature, the presence of Family and our ability to adapt to change makes us a Diamond in the rough just outside of the Payson arena.

A favorite for Paysonites. Excellent quality delicious calzones, ooey gooey pasta, and of course, piping-hot pizzas. Nice salad bar too. Since we made our first pie, we've used only the freshest ingredients around. But we wouldn't be Pizza Factory without hungry customers like you. So sit down, grab a slice (or two, or three), and dig in. That secret ingredient? It's love.

Wrapped in pine and adorned with antlers, fishing nets and trophy photos, Pinon Cafe serves as a kind of welcome wagon to the forested lushness of Rim Country. You’ll find plenty of diner favorites and some unexpected delights. Huevos benedictos ($7.25) put a rowdy Southwestern spin on eggs benedict. Poached eggs and spicy chorizo nestle on an English muffin and are smothered in green chile sauce. They’re served with potatoes and a wedge of watermelon, which helps cool off your taste buds. If you yearn to start your day with something more dessert-like, try the Elvis ($7.50), French toast stuffed with peanut butter and topped with sautée bananas and chocolate drizzle.

This seaside spot is tucked away in a small shopping plaza. Opened in July 2015, it started with just a few items but has grown as business increased. Order at the counter with the steady stream of locals coming in for take-out. Combo 1 includes a piece of fish, four shrimp, chips and a drink. The fish is sweet, tender and coated with a thin layer of house-made batter, giving it a nice crunch. The shrimp are plump and succulent. Clams, oysters and crab cakes are also available. There are tacos, chicken, jalapeño poppers and salads along with burgers made from fresh ground sirloin. Be sure to save room for deep-fried cheesecake.

Sightseeing

Shoofly Village Archaeological Ruins offers visitors a self-guided tour back into another era. The Shoofly Indian Ruins were believed to have been occupied between A.D. 1000-1250. At an elevation of 5,240 feet, Shoofly Village once had a total of 79 structures of which the rock outlines, once the base of the walls, are still visible. As both farmers and hunters, they grew corn, beans, squash, possibly cotton and successfully hunted deer, elk, rabbits, rodents, birds, and migratory fowl (ducks and geese). It is also believed they may have raised turkeys (wild turkeys are indigenous to the area). Their brown clay pottery were mostly jar-shaped vessels but were not decorated with designs.

The Oldest Standing Schoolhouse in Arizona, established in 1884. A local dispute over the site for the school building was solved by cowboys using a calf rope and counting the number of lengths between the Hicks-Duncan cabin on the west end of the valley and the Peach cabin on the east end. They retraced their steps to the mid-point. There the one room log school was built and still stands. The school is located on Fossil Creek Road in Strawberry, Arizona and is open to the public from May through mid-October on weekends and holidays.
