Roosevelt Cemetery is the final resting place of some of the local settlers and also workers who built Theodore Roosevelt Dam. A self-guided walk is available. Visitors may pick up brochures at the Tonto Basin Visitor Center located directly across Highway 188. The trail up to the cemetery has a hardened surface and the cemetery interior trails are made of natural material.

From the trailhead, the trail gradually climbs a slope on a paved trail to the Roosevelt Cemetery. An interpretative trail winds through the historic cemetery, but it is not suitable for wheelchair use due to steepness. The trail (unsurfaced) also continues past the cemetery to Thompson Trail 121.

    Unique weekend with the Temple Chai Mens' Club for Lag B'Omer and a מְדוּרָה at Windy Hill Campground. They wanted a hike so I chose this one from Superstition Wilderness Trails East by Carlson & Stewart page 102, We went first to the Roosevelt Lake Cemetery. Then up to Thompson Trail 121. The trail has some nice up and down - mostly up - with scree. At a pass about 1/2 way into the hike you can see the bridge. One hiker turned back to go to the Visitor Center and meet us later. From the pass you have a steep downhill. Great views. You hit a small clearing with a stock tank. Then a small uphill for great views of the Bridge. Then downhill to the metal gate. Two of our remaining 6 hikers seemed to be struggling, so instead of going back by the trail we crossed the road on AZ 88 and hiked the road back to the Visitor Center. Not much traffic today. I would have preferred going back on the trail but discretion is the better part of valor. Got everyone home safe & sound and not much worse for wear. My ego suffered a little bruise - I was looking back and checking on visuals on everyone when I was gravitationally challenged.

    Lots of cacti flowering and lots of wildflowers today so my rating will probably be higher than most.

    I was at a camping outing for the Temple Chai Mens' Club at Windy Hill Campground for Lag B'Omer. They wanted some hikes. I chose this hike for the older, less fit men from Superstition Wilderness Trails East by Carlson & Stewart page 100. The Trailhead is just across Highway 88 from the Roosevelt Lake Visitors' Center. Enter the Lakeview Trailer Park and take first right within about 100' of the highway. The cacti and some wildflowers were blooming. We found the gravesite of Moses - Moses Murphy that is. Not really a hike but interesting and fun. It is on the way from the TH to the Thompson Trail #121 (Superstition Wilderness Trails East) page 102

    I am tired and sore as I write this so bear with me if I have to come back and edit it. #TGFM&Ms - thank God for M&Ms (Motrin & Move Free).

    From Campsite 20 I followed the trail to a nice bench facing east where you can watch the sunrise if you wake up it odark30 (I was a little late). Then down some "stairs". I walked out through reeds to the lake. Saw some areas in the reeds where mule deer must have bedded down. Either mule deer or some really large redneck beer drinkers. Touched the Roosevelt Lake Water and headed back up to wake my fellow campers #slackers
