DescriptionThe Goldfield Mountains are located East of Phoenix and run just north of the adjacent Superstition Mtns. This area lies between Canyon Lake and Usery Pass. An area mostly known for hiking and mountain biking has seen very little climbing activity due to the loose nature of the rock. Many prominent cliffs and unique features make it fun and adventurous place to explore.
Getting ThereThese directions below are for the access to Riverside Tower and the cliffs nearby.
There are other trailheads to access different parts of the Goldfield Mountains.
The Riverside Tower area is located on the Bush Highway east of Phoenix near Saguaro Lake. Riverside Tower and the other cliffs in its vicinity are accessed by the parking at the Water Users Trailhead. This is the same parking/dropoff area used by the Lower Salt River Tubing operation. ***Please be advised a Tonto Forest Recreation Pass is Required***
- Crossing the Salt River is required. Please exercise caution in doing so.
