Tonto Rim Search And Rescue
Rim Country - Arizona's Favorite
We work hard to keep it safe and enjoyable for everyone.
Explore this site and learn about what we do. We are
volunteers who do this because we love the outdoors and wish
to give something back.
Please consider a donation to help support our efforts. We
volunteer our time, skills, and considerable personal
equipment. However, specialized rescue equipment, medical
equipment, and specialized training take significant amounts
of our annual budget. We are not publicly funded, and rely on
the goodness of those who live in and visit
this wonderful area.
Our General Membership meeting is held once a month on the 2nd
Thursday of the month and is held at the Payson Library
Meeting room in Rumsey Park at 7:00 PM. Everyone welcome!
If you have an emergency, we can't be
dispatched until the Gila County Sheriff's Office dispatches
us. The fastest way to make that happen is to call 911.

fell while hiking below Tonto Natural Bridge
State Park north of Payson.
More Info and Photos
The metal basket jerked side to side then suddenly fell
free, sliding down the rocky 300-foot cliff in a remote
canyon north of Roosevelt Lake. I clutched the camera to my
chest. Strapped in like a mummy, I was helpless to do
anything but take a picture......More

Flagstaff, Ariz. – The area of Fossil Creek that has been
closed due to extreme fire danger
since June 6 will be open Friday (July 11) at 8 a.m. The
closure is being lifted due to recent rains and
higher humidity, which have changed conditions for the area
such that fire danger has lessened and
visitor access will be allowed.
Visitors are reminded that even though gas stoves are
allowed in the area, there is a permanent
ban on the use of campfires and charcoal in the Fossil Creek
Additionally, on weekends vehicle access is limited into
Fossil Creek on Forest Road 708 from
Camp Verde and to the Fossil Spring Trailhead parking lot
from Strawberry. Only a certain amount of
vehicles will be allowed entrance in order to keep roads
clear for emergency access and protect
visitor health and safety. For more information, call the
Fossil Creek hotline at 928-226-4611.
