The Horseshoe Dam is just 25 miles outside the beautiful town of Cave Creek. The dam is 1,500 feet long, 144 feet high. This dam is unique because there is a walking path which allows you to get behind the water flowing over the dam. You can get very close to the water below the dam which cascades down into a beautiful multi-tiered waterfall flowing over large rocks. The views are stunningly beautiful when there is a release of water happening. Just below Horseshoe Dam is some of Arizona’s best fishing.
Exploring around the historic Sheep Bridge area offers lots of fun adventures. On the north side of the river there is hidden within dense reeds a hot springs to soak in. There are many opportunities for hiking along this beautiful stretch of the Verde River and swimming in the summer months.
