Gila National Forest rests by the border that separates New Mexico from Arizona, and encompasses nearly three million acres of desert, mountain land. The landscape here showcases some of the most unique scenery in the state, and you can often get lost among the lush, green trees that poke out of the sand. Many people come here to enjoy the quiet of the mountains, away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. When you’re here, it’s the best way to make the most of your surroundings is by staying in a secluded mountain rental, which will help you reconnect with nature. Follow the Continental Divide Trail, where you can catch some amazing mountain views as you hike, and try climbing the iconic Escudilla Mountain.
