The law firm of child abuse from New River presents to you this article about the community. Our dedicated attorneys hope you learn something new about the CDP.
New River is a census-designated place (CDP) and an unincorporated community in Maricopa County, Arizona. Founded in 1868 by Lord Darrell Duppa as a stagecoach stop, it was named after the seasonal wash, New River, which is part of the Agua Fria River system that drains into the Salt River. For many years the area was the terminus of the former Black Canyon Highway (Interstate 17). Today, New River is bordered by the Tonto National Forest on the north, Cave Creek on the east, Phoenix on the south and Anthem on the west. As of the 2010 census, the CDP has a population of 14,952 people and a total area of 70.8 square miles.
Cave Creek Regional Park was named for a small stream that rises in the hills northeast of the area and flows southwest for 25 miles before entering Paradise Valley. The approximately 3,000-acre park is situated in the upper Sonoran Desert and provides visitors with an unobstructed view of the beautiful scenery. Activities you can enjoy doing at the park include:
The park also offers a variety of trails for you to choose from. For those looking for more of a challenge, the 5.8 miles loop Go John Trail gives an illusion of being miles away from civilization. For an easier hike, you could try the Slate Trail. Guided trails of the jasper-studded hills are also offered to take visitors back in time to the 1870s. The regional park is open Sundays through Thursdays from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. On Fridays and Saturdays, it is open from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Gavilan Peak is a peak northwest of Daisy Mountain and southeast of New River. Named in the 1880s, during a battle between the Apaches and the U.S. Cavalry in the area, it means 'hawk' in Apache and 'sparrow hawk' in Spanish. Because the peak is very steep, most climbers and hikers tend to stick with Daisy Mountain. However, those who love the thrill of a challenge can be seen attempting to climb the peak.
Wranglers Roost Stagecoach Stop served as a stagecoach stop for a short period of time in the late 1800s. Located in New River, Wranglers Roost was built in the 1930s by Carl Jesse Myers as a dude ranch. In the 1960s, a resort with hotel accommodations, a restaurant, pool, and hot tub was added to the original rock structure. Today, the historic Wranglers Roost Stagecoach Stop is owned by Reid and Heidi Stewart. It is available to rent for weddings.
