Have you ever been to Cave Creek Canyon? In Cave Creek you’ll find spectacular scenery, world class bird-watching, a riparian area teeming with unique wildlife, and a number of Forest recreation amenities to help you enjoy all those natural wonders.

The Legacy Foundation staff and Board members took a recent site visit trip to Cave Creek Canyon and were all quite impressed with the beauty of the place.

Several years ago one of the recreation areas was washed away by flooding, including the restrooms. This resulted in sanitation issues along the trail. This led to additional problems of unhealthy algae growth in the creek.

Friends of Cave Creek Canyon applied for and received a $4,000 grant to purchase two port-a-potties to place along the trail, resolving the sanitation issue and restoring the beauty of this part of the trail.

If you haven't been, it's well worth the trip.

Thank you to the Friends of Cave Creek Canyon for hosting our site visit and showing us how beautiful a place it is.
