to the south and west of taylor are high mountains and forest, including the white mountains, sitgreaves national forest, and the mogollon rim. many small lakes, perfect for trout fishing and swimming, are scattered throughout these mountains. the sunrise park ski resort is located 65 miles south of taylor on the fort apache indian reservation.

several golf courses are located nearby, including the silver creek golf club, recognized as one of arizona's top public golf courses.

the nearby white mountains, the sitgreaves national forest and a mild four season climate brings the year 'round enjoyment of a wide choice of easy to reach recreational pleasures from golf to lake fishing and boating, to skiing, hiking and camping.
