Nice views, easy climb but lots of bikers.

This area appears to be closed to all use. Unless someone proves otherwise, this is not a legitimate hike.

Great area to explore 100 year old historical dam site built in 1923. One of the first steel reinforced concrete dams build in US. There is no water there as it was built to protect from unseasonably high rain periods. A new earth dam was built below the old dam in 1979.

This dam seldom gets visited. This dam was built in 1923 and was one of the first concrete reinforced dams designed by John Samuel Eastwood. There is a paved road part of the way, no motorized vehicles allowed, to the dam. A good link with more photos and information is located at: http://darrensrides.blogspot.com/2010/02/cave-creek-dam.html

With the desert in full bloom, made for some beautiful scenery.
