Coolidge Dam Run + ADD NEW ROUTE
- Trip Toolbox
This route starts in Globe, AZ and ends on the Coolidge Dam on the San Carlos Indian Reservation. Start South on Hwy 70 and turn right on BIA 3 to the Dam. Incredible old Concrete dam with eagle scupltures
The route itself is good with mountains on both sides. The section from Coolidge Dam road to Globe is spectacular from any direction. BIA 3 (Coolidge Dam Road) to the Dam is an older blacktop road that leads into a fascinating canyon, and crosses one of the most interesting Dams in America.
Hwy 70 from Globe is a good highway. BIA 3 is only fair, but it is hardtop all the way to the solid concrete dam.
If you want to eat, Globe has a number of good restaurants. If you want to eat at the Dam, bring a sack lunch.
I suggest you look up Coolidge Dam on the internet before the trip to see all the unusual features of this historical and almost unknown dam.
