Peaks

Four Peaks provides weekend getaway

The Tonto National Forest, which stretches across most of Arizona, offers beautiful scenery and great weekend getaways.

The Four Peaks Wilderness Area is no different. Just north of Mesa on Highway 87, on the way to Payson, is a great location to camp without being to far from home.

When you look towards the east from the Valley it is possible to see the four jagged peaks looming above the horizon, the highest of which is Brown’s Peak, standing at 7,600 feet.
