Rim Country Tours

Located in the very heart of Arizona, Payson is a mere hour and 20 minutes northeast of Phoenix, and approximately 3 hours travel time from Tucson. Easy access and gorgeous sweeping roads and landscapes make Payson a year round four season travel and vacation destination. Light traffic, abundant lodging, and quality dining also bring outdoor adventurers through this robust section of paradise nestled in the center of Tonto National Forest.

Payson and the majority of Rim Country sit at just about 5000’ elevation and, consequently, our locale experiences ideal climates all four seasons of the year. For obvious reasons, this feature is ideal for outdoor powersport adventuring. Getting a little warm in the Summer? Simply go north or east 12-25 miles and up in elevation another 2000 feet. You’ll find spectacular views for miles and temps 10-15 degrees cooler than Payson proper.

Feeling a little too cool in the winter months? Set your GPS for Rye, Jakes Corner and Roosevelt Lake. Ambient temps average 10 or more degrees warmer than those right in town. Spring, Fall and cusp months are absolutely perfect for yondering in and around this quaint, beautiful, whimsical cowboy mountain town.
