DescriptionWater recreation, fishing, hiking and rafting.
On the banks high above the river stands a replica of the Verde River Sheep Bridge.
The Flagstaff Sheep Company and the Howard Sheep Company constructed the original bridge to minimize the loss of sheep when crossing the river. The bridge was started in 1943 and finished in 1944 at a cost of $7,277. The material used came from an Arizona mine and from a railroad line.
On November 21, 1978, Sheep Bridge was entered into the National Register of Historic places.
Sheep Bridge is the gateway to the west side of the Mazatzal Wilderness.
