White Bridge - Camp Verde

Description: This is the easiest site in the Valley to access. It is a parking and picnic place right on Highway 260 as it crosses the Verde River. The River here is wide and relatively quiet and this is a favorite put-in place for kayakers. The Cottonwod stand is mature and the trail is fairly well defined. This is not a primitive area and rural housing lines the River on both sides. The trail runs along the the side of the River and, because it is lower than the area around it, the housing is not apparent. As a bonus, the Verde Ranger District office of the Prescott National Forest is across the street.
