Heber and Overgaard are technically two separate communities, but their close proximity has led to the merged name of “Heber-Overgaard”. These communities are half-way between Payson and Show Low on Highway 260. They are in the White Mountains about 55 miles from Payson and approximately 144 Miles from Phoenix. The town is in the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest and the landscape is rolling hills and flat meadows.
Heber/Overguard are at 6700 feet of elevation near the Mogollon Rim and there are many recreational opportunities in the surrounding forest including fishing, hiking, camping and hunting.
