The White Mountains in the distance to the S and SE had snow in them still! This is the playground for many people in the Phoenix and Tucson areas who wish to escape to the cooler temperatures of the higher altitude.

1.06 acre land for sale in Concho, Arizona by Snowflake, Show Low and Saint Johns in the White Mountains. Its close to the Apache Sitgreaves National Forest in Apache County for lots of hunting and fishing! This is a rural off grid area that allows RV's, homes or manufactures homes. All of the photos were taken in March 2019 of the property and it's surrounding views. It is tricky to get to the property but once you find your way in it's actually pretty easy to get to with decent county roads along the way which I didn't expect. I definitely came in from the long way from the north and the GPS did not pick up these roads and took me the wrong way in.
I snapped a series of photos showing the street signs that lead out to the area the easiest. N3533 is a bladed dirt road along the south as seen in the photos. You want to come in from the south on 3540. None of the maps pick up these roads correctly so I would definitely take note of the photos I snapped of the street signs and homes along the way. Take County Road 3540 off Highway 61 which sits 11.4 miles NE of the Stanford Store at the intersection of Highway 60 and Highway 61. Follow 3540 for 1.8 miles and head SE at the split. I did not see a road sign there but this is a photo of the house and signs you're looking for. I followed the most driven road that lead all the way out to this subdivision. I did pass thru a couple of gate that said to close it and I included photos of those as well.
The house at the split 1.8 miles off the highway.
The property if flat with scattered short grass and a bit of smaller malapai rock strewn about and rather a softer dirt. It is well off the beaten path and the immediate area remains undeveloped for the most part other than the neighbor that adjoins it on it's east. I spoke with him confirming that he owned the corner lot with the off grid cabin you see in the photos. He said that he does drive over my property to get to his property but he does have access thru his driveway as well. I don't think he thought anyone would show up that's for sure but I did!
The wind had really picked up and I was reminded that just across the valley to the SE and S is the White Mountains and her snow capped peaks. It looked like she was getting a bit of snow still. Wow we have had a lot of snow here this year - nice! These mountains are definitely the playground for Arizona. I myself have fished several of the lakes!
There are interesting views of cool hills which are close by and very scenic! They look like someone plunked them down out in the middle of the wide open valley and add lots of character to the immediate area they are so close by!
Smooth Knoll sits to the SW about 1.5 miles away.
Buddy's friend Fred the Basset Hound joined in for an afternoon of exploring!
Wow is it a pretty ride thru the Concho Valley passing by some really cute off grid and on grid homes along the way! Mineral Creek that flows thru the area that was really rushing - very pretty. It makes it way to Little Ortega Lake which sits up by Highway 61 where the road out to this area takes off.
We passed a few turkey vultures and cows grazing along the way.
Previously when I was in this area I spotted a huge herd of antelope out grazing! I also noticed one of the neighbors along the way had a beautiful sign above their driveway that said Elk Call Ranch...hmm wonder if the elk roam out in these hills as well!
The property sits about 10 miles S of the Post Office and Dollar General Store in the small town of Concho. Show Low is the largest town in the area with a population of over 11,000. Here you will find the hospital, Wal-Mart, Home Depot, Lowe's, and plenty of shopping and restaurants.
This area is considered the playground for many people in the Phoenix and Tucson areas who wish to escape to the cooler temperatures of the higher altitude. The Apache/Sitgreaves National Forests, often called the White Mountains, sit just to the south. It is the second highest mountain range in Arizona. It is home to more than 400 species of animals including antelope, elk, deer, fish, big horn sheep, mountain lions, black bears and gray wolves. With over 450 miles of streams and 2000 surface acres of cold water lakes, many fisherman, bird watchers and hunters are drawn to the area. It also offers winter time recreational fun like skiing and snowmobiling. Within a 1/2 hour drive is the Painted Desert and Petrified Wood Forest.
A visit to Big Lake!
I moved to the White Mountains myself in 2011 and moved Smile4u here in 2014. I love the higher elevations, the four seasons and most of all the sunshine that this area offers! It is such a treat to have something in our own area and I don't expect it to be around very long. Enjoy! Char the Explorer : )

Apache and Navajo County Area Information
Adjoining to the west is Navajo County with a population of about 107,500, encompasses 9,960 square miles. Many people think that Arizona is a vast, open desert without vegetation but Navajo County offers Monument Valley, Keams Canyon, part of the Petrified Forest National Park, and the largest stand of Ponderosa Pines in North America.
The counties offers extreme diverse regions with the forested White Mountains and green pastures in the south and high, dry, colorful plateau regions to the north. The Petrified Forest National Park and Painted Desert that we learn about in our elementary school geography books, offer visitors a spectacular journey into prehistoric times.
The dinosaurs originally came to the banks of the Little Colorado River and then the Indians. Pioneer families arrived from the east in the early 1880's. Scattered over the greater portion of the county and especially along the Colorado Chiquita River are many ruins of a prehistoric people. There is plenty of pure spring water in every town and village in the county, constantly fed by the rains and melting snow in the mountains.
The area is gorgeous and not what you would typically think of when you think of the desert. With elevation ranging from 4,000 to 10,000 feet, plush green pastures with animals grazing in the plateau region to the north and the snowcapped ski slopes in the White Mountains to the south offer a picturesque setting.
The area has four seasons with warm summer months and a few snow days in the wintertime. The snow usually melts in the lower altitudes in a day or two but the White Mountains become a wintertime playground.
Excellent fishing, hunting and skiing make the White Mountains a year-round recreation area for many living in the hot Phoenix sun. It is home of the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forests with 8 notable cold water lakes and numerous lakes and reservoirs: Aker Lake, Big Lake, Woods Canyon Lake, Willow Springs Lake,Black Canyon Lake, Chevelon Canyon Lake, Luna Lake, Bear Canyon Lake, Crescent Lake, and Blue River. There are over 680 miles of rivers and streams and the headwaters for the Black, Little Colorado and San Francisco rivers are in the White Mountains.
