Why choose a trail at Graham Mountain?

Mount Graham (called in Nnee biyati' (Western Apache) Dzil Nchaa Si An - ′Big Seated Mountain′) is a mountain in southeastern Arizona in the United States. The mountain reaches 10,720 feet (3,267 m) in height. It is the highest elevation in Graham County, Coronado National Forest and the Pinaleño Mountains As the name "Mount Graham" is often used by locals to refer to the entire mountain range, the peak itself is frequently referred to as "High Peak". It is twentieth of the 57 ultra prominent peaks of the lower 48 states, and the first of the five in Arizona. Mount Graham summits are headwaters for numerous perennial streams that tumble through five major botanical zones. Located between the southern Rocky Mountains and Mexico’s Sierra Madre Occidental, and biologically isolated for millennia, the higher elevations have provided refuge for relict populations of plants and animals with adaptive strategies rooted in Pleistocene ice age environmental conditions. Of particular note are stands of the oldest conifer trees in the U.S. Southwest and associated habitats for threatened and endangered species, especially the Mount Graham Red Squirrel. Located near the northern limit of the Chiricahua Apache homeland and the southern margins of Western Apache territory, the range is one of the Western Apache’s four holiest mountains and is considered sacred by all of the region's Native peoples. Since a determination by the Keeper of the Register in 2002, Dził Nchaa Si An, as it is known in the Western Apache language, ranks as the largest and most extensive (~330,000 acres) property listed on or formally determined eligible for the National Register of Historic Places. In 1993, the St. Paisius Orthodox Monastery was founded at the base of the mountain. Mount Graham hosts both species of Arizona native trout--Gila and Apache trout and three species of introduced trout.

The Graham Mountain is located in the Catskill Mountains of New York. At 3,847 feet, it is the tallest mountain in the range. The mountain is named for James Graham, who owned a large tract of land in the area in the early 1800s. The mountain is a popular destination for hikers, climbers, and skiers. There are several trails that lead to the summit, including the popular Devil's Path. The views from the summit are spectacular, with 360-degree views of the surrounding mountains and valleys.
