Globe Arizona River Running Guide

Weather for Globe Arizona Forecast

Globe is located 80 miles east of Phoenix along US Highways 60 and 70 with a population of 7,000 people. It boomed in the 1900's with the discovery of silver. The silver was quickly depleted, but abundant copper kept the town thriving.


Many of the mines still operate, but today Globe is known for the many recreational opportunities available in the national forests that surround the town. Hiking, mountain biking and camping are all popular as are boating and fishing on Roosevelt and Apache Lakes. There are also good seasonal whitewater rafting opportunities on the Upper Salt River near town. Globe's historic downtown is also of interest to travelers.
