Mogollon Rim

Pronounced "moe-gee-on."

More than 200 miles long, it is the dominant geological feature in Northern Arizona named either after Juan Ignacio Flores Mogollon, the Governor of New Mexico from 1712 to 1715 or the Spanish word for parasite.

The Rim cuts across three national forests: Apache-Sitgreaves, Coconino, and Tonto.

U.S. Forest Service provides more information at Mogollon Rim Ranger District.
