Overgaard Things to Do

  • How Long Has It Been?~Stop 4

    There is a series of historical plaques on Black Canyon road. The road is dirt, but most vehicles can drive down it. Yet, beaware that some of these roads or trails, are not two wheel drive worthy. Some require all wheel drive and high clearance. We traveled probably 50 miles along on one particular road and it dipped steeply and if it had started...

  • Hidden Fort near stop 1?

    When stopped at Marker Stop 1 the site of the old ranger station, my brother in law wanted to explore the trail. My sister didn't feel like it, and wanted to chat with my hubby, so I said lets go! I jumped into their Cat (ATV) and off we went. Although, the ranger cabin is long gone, but knew there was something down the road since there is a blue...

  • Can You Read the Rocks....?~Stop 2 (Part...

    It was fun climbing the trail and my sister went way ahead up the very steep trail looking for the paintings. I came up behind her, but for some reason I stopped thinking it has to be near where I was standing. I looked to my right and there they were kind of hidden underneath a rock cropping which was intended to protect the paintings by the...

    One thing for certain, Overgaard-Herber townships has loads of beautiful statues. Just at the Bison Ranch Resort are some of there finest I think. I made a point to walk around and take in the site and enjoy these beautiful pieces of works of art.

    Favorite thing: Overgaard and the nearby town of Heber are pretty much inseperable nowadays. The population here is about 3000 and staying steady. Overgaard is located along Arizona Highway 260 which follows the Mogollon Rim a geological formation so large it is the second one in the state (after the Grand Canyon) that you can see from space. If you need a break while driving along 260 stop at the Navajo County Park. It has picnic pavilions, a playground for the kids, a trail or two and is a nice place to relax.

    Fellow VT member, and friend, Claus has informed me that Overgaard is a common Danish surname and means "Upper Farm".
