Workman Creek Falls Campground Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"The trip from Globe to Young along the Desert to Tall Pines Scenic Drive (AZ 288) takes you from the sere valley around Roosevelt Lake to the ponderosa pines, maples, and aspens blanketing the Sierra Anchas. Rounding the southern end of the lake, you cross the Salt River near the Roosevelt Lake Diversion Dam, the end of a day’s trip for many rafters on the Salt.
As you climb higher you see down the length of 22,000-acre Roosevelt Lake, which looks even larger in its mountainous setting. The road passes many deep side canyons full of sharp pinnacles and hoodoos, then suddenly plunges into sun-dappled forest. From this point, recently laid pavement alternates with smooth gravel."
