A hike along the shore of Mormon Lake, Arizona’s largest natural lake. This is a great place to view wildlife. The walk follows the old road along the shore of the lake. (The topographic map shows this old road but not the present highway, which is to the east, above the lakeside cliffs.) The old road is nearly level and is about 20 feet higher than the lake, so there is a good view. This hike is best done at sunrise or sunset, which are good times for wildlife viewing.
