The small settlement of Pine, Arizona was established by Mormon families traveling through the state in the 18th century. Today, the area has retained a lot of its traditional buildings and old-fashioned charm. Pine's location makes it a perfect spot for getting into nature.
Hiking and camping are the two best pastimes to enjoy in Pine. The Tonto Natural Bridge State Park, Pine Trailhead and Fossil Creek Road offer beautiful trails and camping spots with all the necessary amenities. The routes here lead through beautiful woodland scenery -- past rolling hills and over streams, yet are relatively flat and so are suited for hikers of all abilities.
Pine is best enjoyed during the spring or fall, when temperatures are between 70 and 80 degrees and not too hot or humid.
