Look at the Gila River Valley from high ground in York. Gentle colors flourish the hillsides - white, violet, orange, yellow wildflowers everywhere, so subtle yet so comforting.

GC Tourism Members

Greenlee County, Arizona … a land of contrasts, of variety, and of unexpected delights! Two primary thoroughfares, US 191 (The Coronado Trail) and US 70 (The Old West Highway) showcase this spectrum of scenic, biological, geological, and cultural wonders.  Along these routes one finds opportunities for hiking, biking, rockhounding, birding, fishing, hunting, camping, exploring historic places, observing mining operations, craft shopping, or just finding a peaceful getaway.

Retrace the steps of Old West pioneers, Apache Indians, lawmen, outlaws, cowboys, rustlers, gamblers, and Mormon settlers as you traverse the county east to west on the Old West Highway. Experience railroad and farm town Americana in Duncan, Arizona and the surrounding Gila River Valley where farmers grow cotton (and other crops) and ranchers raise cattle (two of Arizona’s famous 5 Cs — cotton, cattle, copper, climate, and citrus).  This charm is especially on display during the annual County Fair.

On the north-south route, The Coronado Trail (US 191, once designated US 666 “The Devil’s Highway”) climbs from about 3,000 feet to over 9,000 ft in elevation in less than 70 miles! Along the way, it passes from river valleys through high desert to scrub oak and pinyon forests to alpine forests. And with only a few hundred turns and swichbacks to negotiate! This is a biker’s dream! (40 foot RV’ers — not so much.)
