The Arizona Canal Trail is one of the longer multi-use trails in Maricopa County. This trail runs for 16 miles between Phoenix and Peoria along the Arizona Canal, one of the county's vital waterways. The trail is largely continuous along a number of parallel pathways adjacent to the concrete-lined channel. It provides access to a large number of residences, commercial centers, schools and other recreational opportunities.
The trail connects to a number of other trails along its route, including the New River Trail, the Cave Creek Trail, and the Skunk Creek Trail.
Parking is available in Thunderbird Paseo Park (West Thunderbird Road, Glendale) and Granada Park (6505 North 20th Street, Phoenix).
