Winter traveling tips!

To find the Rustic Rim Hideaway from Phoenix, follow State Route 87 North from Mesa or Fountain Hills to Payson. At McDonald's Golden-Arches, turn right (East) on State Route 260, (towards Show-Low), go about 36 miles (you will bypass Kohl's Ranch and Christopher Creek - the road has changed), climbing the Mogollon Rim, past the Woods Canyon Lake turnoff and Willow Springs Lake. You will see a reduced speed (50 MPH) sign, a small "FOREST LAKES" sign, and the road widens to three lanes. Next you will probably see the following: Campers Country Store on the right, Bugles Grazing and Guzzling Restaurant and Forest Lakes Lodge (a 2-story motel) on your left. Go 1 more mile (0.8 mi.) east to Mule Springs (at milepost 289.25 on Hwy 260, also a blue colored "Bed" sign signals your fast approaching left-turn). There are not any streetlights here at night! Take a left turn (North) onto Mule Springs Trail, a small gravel road, and follow it 300 feet until you see the office on the left (the brown house with a large circle drive and tall red reflectors at the driveway). (The office is NOT in the mobile home, the train-caboose or A-Frames on the cul-de-sac). The rental cabins are the three A-Frames in the cul-de-sac (Bill's Loop) across the street from the office.

Cabins: 793 Bills Loop, Forest Lakes Estates, AZ 85931
Office:   918 Mule Springs Trail, Forest Lakes Estates, AZ 85931

If you see a GAS station on Hwy 260, you missed the Mule Springs Trail turnoff. Turn around, go about 1/2 mile, and turn right (north). If all else fails, call 535-9030 or 1-888-801-9030 for more directions.
