The highest of the High Country stretches across the White Mountains, from the town of Springerville to the hamlet of Alpine near the New Mexico border, and south along the famous Coronado Trail to the old mining towns of Clifton and Morenci.
The fir, spruce, and aspen–forested mountains are drained by the headwaters of several rivers, including the Little Colorado, the Black, the White, the Blue, and the San Francisco. These rivers and smaller streams provide some of the state’s best stream fishing. And of course there are many mountain lakes, large and small, for boaters and anglers. Wilderness enthusiasts have much to choose from, including the Mount Baldy, Bear Wallow, and Escudilla Wildernesses, and the vast Blue Range Primitive Area.
