The Grand Enchantment Trail hike that we did in 2018 was really rewarding and enjoyable. Brett Tucker and Melissa Spencer have done an outstanding of putting together this new route called the Mogollon Rim Trail and we were lucky to be among the first 5 folks to hike it.
The MRT traverses along the Mogollon Rim, which is the southern edge of the Colorado Plateau, for roughly 500 miles. Its western terminus is near Cottonwood, Arizona and its eastern terminus is at the AZ/NM line near Alma, New Mexico.
Our journal from this hike is here -> Mogollon Rim Trail Journal 2019
Our Favorite Photos From The Mogollon Rim Trail
All of our photos can be seen throughout the various pages of our journal. Since we enjoy taking a quick look at the photos now and then, we’ve put them up here so others can enjoy in a quick glance.
