Overview: From the Lower Take Off Point picnic area an unmarked trail starts out behind the Restroom and follows an old road to the Lake Side of Parker Dam.

Parker Dam is a concrete dam that crosses the Colorado River 11 miles North of Downtown Parker. It was built between 1934 and 1938 and is 320 feet high. 235 feet of the dam are below the riverbed, making it "the deepest dam in the world".

The reservoir behind the dam is Lake Havasu.

Make Arizona proud!
