Safford is the center of a thriving ranching community along the Gila River Valley. Towering above the valley, the Pinaleno Mountains and several smaller ranges are the recreational center of the area. Capped by 10,717-foot Mount Graham, the Pinalenos are more than 50 miles long and the summit ridge and north slopes are covered with a dense, cool forest of pine, fir, oak, and aspen. Campgrounds included in this eTrail are: Fourmile Canyon, Riggs Flat, Columbine Corrals, Cunningham, Soldier Creek, Hospital Flat, Shannon, Arcadia, Roper Lake State Park, Riverview, Owl Creek.

We stayed at the Hospital Flats camp site and it was wonderful even on a busy Labor day weekend. This site only allows tents, so the noise level is very low even though it is close to the unpaved road.
