I put my bicycle in the back of my Jeep Liberty and headed out to the Fish Creek Overlook. I wanted a firsthand look at the bridge and the condition of AZ88. I had viewed photos and videos, but was unsure of their location.

The road was a mess. Half the time I rode the bike and the other half I walked. On the way back the bike was not much help. I could not handle the incline with all the water ruts and the temperature was rising, causing me to take frequent rests. An earlier start would have been better.

There are two sections of the road cluttered with huge boulders. Once passing them the one-way bridge is reached within minutes. I took a short bike ride on the flat section of road past the bridge but it soon became difficult to handle. I did not have the time to explore further.

Most of my photos and videos were taken on the way down. It took me about an hour from "overlook" to "one-way" bridge. The return took longer for reasons previously mentioned.

The scenery was and is amazing!

There was no water along the AZ88 heading east. Was the dry creek a tributary, or is the Salt River dry? Just curious.
