After a long day of driving or hiking, the natural hot springs at Roper Lake State Park are inviting and invigorating. Enjoy desert vegetation, an accessible fishing dock, and stunning views of Mount Graham. Roper Lake is stocked with Largemouth bass and Rainbow trout; its a great place for kids to catch their first fish. Boats are limited to small electric motors, creating ideal conditions for a sail board or a canoe. Enjoy five miles of trails in the park and nearby Dankworth Pond. Take advantage of excellent birdwatching and glimpse Gambles quail and heron. The parks camping cabins offer an easy, fun camping experience. Roper Lake has 30 lake surface acres, a boat ramp, natural stone hot tub, a swimming beach, a day use island with picnic tables and grills, camping cabins, and campgrounds. Reservations are available for camping cabins and select campsites.

Nice very easy hike. We took our 5 kids and they had no problems.

The trail is called Mariah Mesa Trail. It's located direct to the left of the natural Hot Tub. Very well maintained trail. Highest elevation about 3200. I'd rate it as easy
