Where is Payson, AZ?
Nestled in the heart of Arizona in the Tonto National Forest, Payson is not your typical desert town. Its elevation of 5,000 feet gives it a Mediterranean climate where temperatures rarely reach 100 degrees Fahrenheit. At less than 90 miles northeast of Phoenix and 115 miles south of Flagstaff, Payson is a great stopping-off point on any road trip through Arizona.
