A piece of heaven at the end of the rainbow. The rural community of Greer is a checkerboard of private land interwoven with National Forest Service at the 8500 ft elevation near the headwaters of the Little Colorado River. The summer temperatures rarely exceed 80 degrees and winter days have the warm Arizona sun shining on fresh snow. The community is noted for its peace and serenity, fine dining, interesting gift and antique shops, and spectacular scenery.
A year round outdoor paradise, Greer offers hiking, fishing and horseback riding in the spring, summer and fall. With downhill and cross-country skiing, sleigh rides, sledding, snow mobile rides, and snowman making in the winter. For those who want a more leisurely stay, there are drives on scenic back-roads, as well as opportunities to views wildlife, picnics, archeological sites and museums.
Also, Greer is a great place to utilize as a base camp for a day trips in East-central Arizona and Western New Mexico. Consider a trip to the Petrified Forest and Painted Desert; Zuni Pueblo for Indian jewelry; Gila wilderness of New Mexico with a stop at the Cat Walk and the mining town of Mogollon; a scenic drive in the Blue Wilderness near Alpine;a trip to Pinetop-Lakeside for the antique shops; or a picnic on Escudilla Mountain with the golden hues of fall color change.
Greer is a four-season paradise. Each season brings special hues to the countryside from winter's white, to summer's wildflowers and autumn's gold. Native wildlife is never far away and every view is a picture to be remembered
