Salt River Overlook Trail

0.5 Miles
Easy

Lookout/Views

The Salt River Overlook Trail at Tonto National Forest in Fort McDowell, Arizona is an easy 0.5 mile out-and-back hike from the Salt River Recreation area over to a lookout point along the Salt River.

The trail starts out at the southwest corner of the main parking lot and heads south before quickly heading back north towards the river. Shortly after taking a right-hand turn to head north, the trail will then head west and run along the Salt River to a lookout point.

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.
