The Blue Mesa Trail is great three-mile look with views of the badlands, log falls and pedestal logs.

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.
