The mountain community of Munds Park, also known as Pinewood, is located off I-17 just 19 miles south of Flagstaff, Arizona. It is surrounded by the largest stand of Ponderosa Pines in the world. Historically a cool summer escape for cattle and horse ranchers, Munds Park now serves as both a quiet summer retreat and a jumping-off point for outdoor activities of all types. With summer temperatures about 25 to 30 degrees cooler than Phoenix, Munds Park is perfect for a variety of summer activities including hiking, mountain biking, and fishing. Munds Park consists of approximately 3000 homes and offers all of the central utilities you’ve come to expect such as water, sewer, electric, phone, cable television, and even good cellular coverage. Despite its reputation as a vacation community, Munds Park is surprisingly close knit with a number of active community and social groups including the local church, fire auxiliary, block watch, and many more.

They include great dining, cooking classes, wine tasting, art classes, bridge games and just about everything in-between.
