Safford Recreation Area

This recreation area is the home of the Coronado's most extensive mountain range, the Pinaleños, and topped by the highest peak in southern Arizona, 10,720 foot Mt. Graham.  A scenic road named the Swift Trail (Hwy 366) leads into these unique mountains and provides access to campgrounds, Forest trails, and fishing at Riggs Lake.

The Safford Recreation Area is also home to the Galiuro Mountains and the Santa Teresa Range.  The 76,317 acre Galiuro Wilderness is steeped in history and contains an extensive trail network.

The Santa Teresas are rugged and remote, with a variety of primitive trails leading into a 26,780 acre Wilderness.
