Highlight: Meddler Point
The main water source for Roosevelt Lake and others in the region is the Salt River. This easy but scenic off-road trail leads you to Meddler Point where you can camp, swim and fish along the banks of the river before it joins the lake. There are several dispersed campsites that offer ample shade from the sun without the crowds found at other organized sites in the area. The area is very popular for fishing and bird watching. It's an annual migration route for many bird species and a great location for spotting large predator birds. The trail ends at a National Forest interpretive site and day use area. There are a couple of paved roads leading to informative sites with river access. You can also choose to visit the Diversion Dam along Highway 288 where you can learn the history of the many dams that have helped develop the Phoenix Valley.
