In the desert east of Phoenix, Arizona lies the Salt River. Along the Salt, there are four man-made lakes: Saguaro, Canyon, Apache, and Roosevelt. Saguaro Lake is the only one that requires a different road to gain access, and the other three are along the famed Apache Trail route. The oldest and largest, Roosevelt, is in a more open setting, and can also be reached by a longer, yet entirely paved highway. The mountains surrounding the lake contain some very rugged wilderness, yet their distance away from the water suggests they might be on the tame side.
