Saguaro Lake near Phoenix, AZ has a variety of jumping spots with heights of roughly 6ft, 17ft, 24ft, and 35-40ft. The two bigger jumps have a few rocks that are easily cleared with a short run-up and the water is pretty deep once you get a few feet away from the cliffs. As always, make sure to test the water before jumping.

Directions: start by heading east from Mesa, AZ on Hwy 60. Take the Power Rd exit and head north. Power Rd eventually becomes Bush Hwy and turns east leading to a stop sign at the intersection with N Usery Pass Rd (if you’ve gone tubing on the Salt River, this is where the tube rental and bus pickup is located). Continue going straight and the west entrance to Saguaro Lake will be on the right about 6 mi beyond the stop sign. Enter the park and continue to the picnic area furthest from the entrance (you will need a $6 Tonto Forest pass to park at the lake – most gas stations nearby have them). To the left of the dock there will be a trail that leads around the north side of the lake. It is about a 10 minute hike to the jumping spots which are marked by the trash inconsiderate visitors left behind. Enjoy the jumps and take your trash with you when you leave!
