LOWER CANYON OF THE SALT RIVER
Lower Canyon Map
As you enter the Lower Canyon of the Salt River from the Middle Canyon, wildlife sightings and natural wonders are around every corner. Just after Class III Cliff Hanger Rapid, a Giant Saguaro cactus thought to be over 200 years old can be seen from the river.
Further downriver, around Horseshoe Bend, you will find a nice beach for lunch in the presence of a Crested Saguaro. The Crested Saguaro is a very rare cactus with only 800 known specimens in the state of Arizona.
Keep your voice down as you pass through a “No Stop Zone,” and you might be treated to an aerial display of our national symbol, the Bald Eagle. This is one of four nesting sites of the Desert Bald Eagle found on the Salt River.
A printer-friendly, souvenir-quality version of this map is great to bring along when visiting us.
