How can I reach the Verde River?

52 new signs will lead to Verde Valley recreational sites

A study released just over a year ago noted that the Verde River was an underappreciated and underutilized economic asset to the valley.The same study concluded that if the river's potential revenue stream was to be tapped, more people needed to be aware of it. And the best way to be aware of it was to go see it.
