With a rich history that dates back to the Old West outlaws during gold rush days, all the way to prehistoric native Mogollon society, this property is bordered by the Gila National Forest. Some points of interest include the various picturesque mountains surrounding the valley, such as Holt Mountain and Brushy Mountain, the San Fransisco River running through Glenwood from the north, the cascading Whitewater Creek flowing from the east, as well as the Aldo Leopold Wilderness further out, which has the distinction of being the first wilderness area established in the nation. The area is notable for having dark skies that are ideal for stargazing, offering spectacular views of the stars above and giving an otherworldly cosmic backdrop to the vast landscape. Read More
