Easy to overlook but worth a look. The 1.1 mile soft asphalt paved loop in embedded in pine trees and surrounds a a couple of baseball fields, soccer pitch, outdoor basketball courts, tennis courts, volleyball field, children's play areas, dog park, picnic tables, pavilions, and even a frisbee golf course,' and is next to the town fine swimming pool, across from a branch of the regional community college.


I had to post a trail to get a trail so this is it, my very first one, new to all this GPS. So this is not selected for adventure but more for enjoyment. Go here and you will see the joggers, some bikes, people of all ages out for healthy walks, town's folks playing sports, children playing, and all next to the swimming pool. You could drive by on Rt. 60/260 and not even know it was there; many folks do.

In the past ten years of living in the beautiful region of Arizona (pine forest, I love), I've been impressed by the care many of the old early Mormon settlements put into their city parks and recreation facilities, and the many activities they have for families. Places you would think might have 'nothing,' always have something, towns like Show Low, for sure, but also from Spenser to Springerville, etc. -- There's an 'old-fashioned,' community caring, like something you'd associate with a Normal Rockwell painting.

At the large Safeway store there's also a Starbucks and a wifi spot: so whether you want to have pastry and coffee and play with your laptop on a Sunday morning (very popular) or go take a healthy walk among the pines, or go swimming, it's all within a stone's throw of this spot, Show Low City Park.
