A Local’s Suggestions on Things To Do:
Hiking & Biking:
Eagle Lake & Eagle Falls - a beginner-friendly 2 mile roundtrip hike. Ends at a beautiful lake surrounded by granite rock. Suggest you bring a lunch (from Verde) enjoy the view, and take a dip. (Note: there is a fee to park)
Vikingsholm - Visit a Scaninavian castle nestled in Emerald Bay! It is a 2 mile round trip hike down (and back up) a steep trail to the beach and castle. (Note: There is a fee to park)
Angora Lakes - A 2.4 mile very scenic round trip hike. There is about 1/2 mile uphill climb when you first start.
