Pleasant Valley, and the community of Young, lie at 5200' just below the Mogollon Rim. Driving from Phoenix, it is approximately a 2.5 to 3 hour drive depending on what part of the metropolitan area you are departing from. There are two routes to choose from, but both require driving over mountain terrain with some stretches of narrow, hardpack dirt roads. The payoff is fabulous views, incredible scenery, a pristine destination surrounded by National Forests, and a community that welcomes you. Please note that 4-wheel drive is recommended during heavy rainfall and winter snows, so please check the local weather link provided before departing.
