Tonto National Forest Tonto is the largest and most varied of the six national forests in Arizona, with terrain ranging from the cactus-covered Sonoran Desert around Phoenix, elevation 1,400 feet, to pine clad mountains along the Mogollon Rim, up to 7,400 feet.

The third unit surrounds the city of Williams on I-40 and is more hilly, rising to a high point of 10,418 feet (Kendrick Peak).

Prescott National Forest Prescott National Forest covers a large area of mountainous land in central Arizona, near such towns as Prescott, Cottonwood, Clarkdale and Camp Verde.

Kaibab National Forest The three separate units of the Kaibab National Forest total over 1.5 million acres in north Arizona, and most of the area is densely wooded.

The northernmost section covers the Kaibab Plateau on the North Rim of the Grand Canyon and is crossed by one paved road (AZ 67) and many logging tracks, though all this region is covered by thick snow for six months of the year.

Some tracks lead to rarely seen viewpoints and tributaries of the canyon, including Kanab Creek and Snake Gulch.

Another part of the forest borders the South Rim of the canyon, land which is tree-covered in the higher elevations near the rim but becomes flat and grassy further south.

The region includes all or part of eight wilderness areas, of which Granite Mountain is the most accessible, and has much interesting scenery, encompassing landscapes ranging from the Sonoran Desert through the chaparral and pine-juniper zones to ponderosa pine forests at the highest elevations.
