White Mountain, Pinetop and Show Low Activities

You didn’t come to Pinetop to stay indoors did you? At Antlers Inn, our courtyard is where guests like to spend time to relax and enjoy the beautiful Ponderosa Pine trees and fresh air. There are chaise lounge chairs to sit and enjoy your favorite beverage or round tables to have a picnic lunch. We also have barbecue grills and picnic tables with umbrellas where you can grill and enjoy family time. We’re in the process of renovating our mini golf course, but you can still enjoy the 9 holes with the putters and balls that we provide. In addition, there’s a horseshoe pit so you can practice your throw. We encourage you to bring your own games to play in the courtyard, there’s plenty of room for everyone.

We’re pet friendly and encourage taking your four-legged friends to the end of our property to take care of their needs among the trees. We also have chairs all along the rooms if you don’t want to stray too far from your room or for a smoke, we have ashtrays all around.

Just around the corner from Antlers Inn . . . . .

Established in 2003, the Nature Center is a tax-exempt, nonprofit educational organization. Our site is on 10 acres in Lakeside, next to the Big Springs Environmental Study Area, with 5 acres leased from the Town of Pinetop-Lakeside on its Mountain Meadow Recreation Complex.

The Nature Center is also your gateway to the wonderful 583-acre Woodland Lake Park parcel, the very heart of Pinetop-Lakeside. Trails connect the Nature Center to the neighboring Big Springs Environmental Study Area with its phenomenal spring-fed pond and wetlands.

From there, you cross ponderosa pine forest where elk roam, then on to the lush Walnut Creek riparian corridor, and ultimately to Woodland Lake into which osprey plunge to catch trout. While you are at the park, please take some time to discover and enjoy the natural world around you!

The folks we have to thank for all the wonderful trails in the White Mountains is TRACKS.

In 1987 at the first meeting of what was to become the White Mountains Horsemen’s Association, 25 equestrians discussed the closing of an increasing number of long-term riding areas and decided that an organization was needed to preserve non-motorized trails for equestrians, hikers and mountain bikers. Thus began the long process of growing a trail system and TRACKS, a volunteer organization dedicated to work with the USFS in planning, developing and maintaining the White Mountains Trail System.

The White Mountains Trail System is a series of multi-use, major loop trails and connector trails in the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forests ranging from the community of Vernon on the east out to the communities of Clay Springs and Linden in the west

The WMTS includes urban trails in the Town of Pinetop-Lakeside, the City of Show Low, and the Wagon Wheel area. The multi-use trails are cleverly designed to take maximum advantage of regional beauty and vistas, with extreme care given to preserving the land, vegetation, wildlife, and wildlife habitats. Landscaped urban trails have multiple entrance points to ease access by residents and visitors.
