General Information

San Francisco Peaks, Coconino National Forest
Copyright: - US Forest Service
San Francisco Peaks, Coconino National Forest
Description - This section includes the National Forests, National Parks, National Monuments, and National Historic Sites throughout Arizona.

Attractions - The National Forests, Parks and Monuments in Arizona include some of the most spectacular, interesting and unique places in the country. The Grand Canyon, in northeast Arizona, is the most famous of these and is a World Heritage Site. Many of these areas, including Canyon de Chelley and Casa Grande Ruins, preserve relics of ancient cultures. In the Petrified Forest National Park, you will find trees that have petrified, Indian ruins and petroglyphs and portions of the colorful Painted Desert. Saguaro National Park protects and preserves the giant saguaro cactus forest in the Sonoran Desert near Tucson.

Arizona has six large National Forests: the Kaibab, Prescott, Coconino, Tonto, Apache-Sitgreaves and Coronado. These National Forest cover much of the higher elevations of Arizona, yet include an incredible diversity of lands from deserts to forests and canyons to alpine peaks. The forests in Arizona often provide a cool escape from the desert cities of Phoenix and Tucson.

Recreation - These lands provide a huge range of recreational activities. Some of the most popular activities include hiking, backpacking, camping, sightseeing, mountain biking, horseback riding, fishing, cross-country and downhill skiing, snowboarding, hunting, nature study, history and archaeological study, off-highway vehicle exploration, and boating.

Climate - The climate of Arizona is as diverse as it's landscape. Much of the southern half of the state and lower elevations have a desert climate. Winters in this area bring beautiful weather, with mild warm days (60- 70F) and cool nights (40's). Summers can be extremely hot with daytime temperatures of 100-115 degrees, and evening lows in the 70's to 80's. The higher elevations receive more precipitation, some in the form of snow during the winter months. The mountainous areas experience cooler temperatures with cold winter months. Dress in layers for your travels in this state of varying layers and be prepared for cool temperatures in high elevations.

Location - Arizona's National Forests, Parks and Monuments are spread throughout the state.
