Routes in Riverside Tower

Description

This stunning desert tower is found on the south side of the Lower Salt River in the Goldfield Mountains. A unique formation in the area with a summit only large enough for a few people. The approach requires crossing the river, sometimes up to waist deep water, as well as some very loose terrain. Not recommended for everyone. The tower is approximately 250ft tall and looks like it may feature a couple different climbs, though the rock is very brittle! Caution and helmets are advised!
Tonto Pass Required Details

Getting There

East of Phoenix, take the Bush Highway to the Water Users Trailhead for the Lower Salt River, just below Saguaro Lake. This area requires a Tonto Forest Recreation pass($8/Not Available at the Parking Area). From this parking area, cross the river and begin hiking west (downstream) until you spot the tower on your left. Hike uphill to it from there. Pants recommended. 45mins-1 hour.
