My husband & I are taking recommendations on hikes to do in the Payson, AZ area. From some books we got from the library on AZ hikes, this looks like it would be a good central location. We'll be in the area for 5 days. We enjoy day hikes. We can manage moderate to some strenuous hikes. My husband would also like to do some rock hounding; any recommendations?
Would there be another town that would be a better central location to hikes & rock hounding?
