My wife and I love this place. Even though it might seem a bit deserted it is very tranquil. Don’t get me wrong you will definitely get a workout. There are 2 trails that intertwine so you can walk up higher or down on lower,...More

Woodland Lake is a nice park with trails and a paved walking path, picnic areas and some sports facilities (i.e. softball, volleyball). We took a sunset walk on the loop trail around the lake (1.1 mile) and it seemed popular; we passed several other people....More

This is a great little hiking trail around the lake. Saw lots of birds and squirrels too. It is right in town so easy to get to.

The lake is not a large lake, but what it lacks in size is made up for by the beautiful 1.6 mile nature trail that goes around the lake. There are many picnic sites (some have stationary BBQ's), a playground for the kids, bathrooms, and...More

It easy to see why this is a popular walking spot..lots of trees, paths with different surfaces, even a covered bridge. There are quite a few covered pavilions with tables for picnicking. Dogs are allowed on leash. The day we went (end of July) there...More

Unfortunately the water level is very low. You can still walk around the lake, great path. There are benches where you can sit and observe views....my stepfather has a bench put there in remembrance of him. Great pavilion to have picnics and parties as well

There are churches in Pinetop and I'm certain there are ministers available to perform marriage ceremonies. Check with the church offices. You will need an Arizona marriage license to have the service performed.
