The Phon D Sutton Lookout Trail at Tonto National Forest in Fort McDowell, Arizona is an easy 0.6 mile out-and-back hike that leads out to a lookout point above the Salt River.
The trailhead can be found at the staircase at the very end of Phon D Sutton Road. Take the staircase down and then take a right-hand turn. Follow the trail along the water until it starts to stray from the river. The trail will skirt past a large bluff before heading uphill to get a view of the area.
Wild horses: This trail can also be used to search for wild horses as the horses use this trail to drink from the river; however, it's not guaranteed you'll see a wild horse. The best time of day to see them is within the first couple of hours after sunrise or the first couple of hours before sunset.
