Canyon Point lies in a forested area above the Mogollon Rim at an elevation of 7,500 ft. The Mogollon Rim, pronounced by locals as “muggy-own,” is a 200-mile long escarpment in northern Arizona that defines the southern edge of the great Colorado Plateau. Elevations along the top of the Rim range from 5,000 to 8,000 feet. The unique landscape was created by extreme erosion and faulting that has sculpted spectacular canyons and buttes. The rim serves as the geographical divide between the cool high country above and the hot, dry desert below. Due to the elevation, summer temperatures can be very pleasant. However, the annual monsoon season often brings afternoon thunderstorms from early July through August. Visitors should come prepared for possible rain and cool nighttime temperatures.
Hikers enjoy staying at Canyon Point because of its access to trails to the Sinkhole and the edge of the Mogollon Rim, which offers a spectacular view. Its proximity to Willow Springs Lake also draws boaters and anglers. Families who stay on the weekends often attend educational programs given by Forest Service rangers and forest naturalists at the facility’s amphitheater.
