Enjoy a day of fun and relaxation on a float trip through Tonto National Forest with your Phoenix Redbirds! Just a short drive from Phoenix, in Mesa, Arizona, the Salt River is a recreational paradise that offers “chills and thrills” while floating on the cool and refreshing mountain-stream waters.

Enjoy a “floating picnic” and experience the natural wonders of the Salt River such as wild horses, blue herons, bald eagles, and majestic mountains. We will rally at the tube station for a three-hour trip.

When: 10 a.m. Mountain time, Saturday, June 21
Where: 9200 North Bush Highway, Mesa, Arizona 85215 (directions)

Tube and bus shuttle service is $17 per person. You are more than welcome to bring your own tube, in which case, the bus shuttle is $14. Tubes for ice chests are also available.
