Cave Creek was named for the cave next to the creek the town was founded on before Arizona officially becase a state. Soldiers on horseback traveling from Fort McDowell found the ancient creek in 1870, and by 1877 the first adobe was built for hungry and exhausted travelers. Cave Creek and the neighboring Carefree share the beautiful land mark, Black Mountain. Today, locals and visitors enjoy the fairly streneous 2.2 mile to the peak and that features beautiful wild flowers, rock formations and amazing views of the surrounding area.
