, or Pinetop-Lakeside, enjoys a quiet, wooded location along Hwy 260, the more scenic of the two routes between Show Low
in east Arizona, the other being US 60. The town sits right on the edge of the Mogollon Rim
at an elevation of 6,800 feet, and is officially known as Pinetop-Lakeside, incorporating an adjacent community just to the west. Most of the surrounding land is part of the Sitgreaves National Forest
, though Fort Apache Indian Reservation
approaches close to the south. There are several lakes bordering the town, most open to fishing, and some lined by private residences, this being a popular location for summer homes, for people wanting to escape the heat of the southern deserts. The few hotels, shops and restaurants in the area are spread out along 7 miles of the main road.
