225 million years of history

Petrified Forest National Park

It is hard to imagine viewing something 225 million years old, but that is what you can do at the Petrified Forest National Park in northern Arizona, just east of Holbrook. Only two hours away from Payson, you can see one of the largest concentrations of colorful petrified wood and the multi-hued Painted Desert, along with some historic buildings and archaeological sites.
