Western Canal Path

Yes there are plenty of intersections, but a fun ride in good shape. One of my favorites!

Western Canal Path

Too many streets to cross

November, 2022 by tim.pearson0520

Stay away from the South Mountain side in Laveen. Not only is there almost zero shade, the surface is broken pavement with a mixture of some light gravel. There are some sketchy neighborhood spots that you have to run behind. But most importantly, way too many streets to cross without any crosswalks. Every other block you have to cross a street. And you have to fight traffic (sometimes standing in the middle because you can only get across one part of the traffic at a time). This really isn’t a trail, but a access road for powerline workers to

Queen Creek Wash Trail

Great Path

September, 2022 by garyhunter

This path is awesome. It is asphalt, very smooth and well maintained. It can be busy at times and is a multipurpose trail where portions can’t be used for any motorized vehicles. So if you walk, road bike, mountain bike, or use a trike, it a great path!

Queen Creek Wash Trail

Trail was amazing and beautiful scenery along the way. Parks, neighborhoods and wildlife along the path. Very busy on the weekend but we'll worth it!

Stadium Connector Shared Use Pathway

Mostly separate from traffic

July, 2022 by kkypmpdgst

Nice path that is separate from traffic for most of the ride. It’s a smaller two lane path with a curb and reflective markers where it meets the road. There is a small portion of it that cuts through a residential neighborhood with speed bumps and no marked bike lane, but there’s not enough vehicle traffic to cause much issue. Once you hit Alma School or Dobson you’ll take a path along the canal to the other respective intersection. If you intend to continue riding to Riverview park, you’ll need to cross a six lane road with a crosswalk. A marked street bike lane will take you the rest of the way, albeit with no barriers

Western Canal Path

Great Trail

June, 2022 by denise9112

This is a long trail. Start early to beat the heat because the Heat almost got us and that was returning 9:39 am It’s all paved but most of it is open hardly any trees to block the Sun.. So your exposed.. But being paved gentle on the bike and us.

Eastern Canal Path

Great ride

June, 2022 by denise9112

This is a good long ride! Some areas really bumpy not all of it is paved.. Take lots of water and snacks. Me and my friend stopped at a park to rest on the side and refuel. Always have a partner there are homeless people along the way.. Be safe not for beginners.

Arizona Canal Path

AZ Canal Path from N Hayden Rd to Lower Salt River Rec Area

April, 2022 by peasenh

We rode the AZ Canal Trail on a Mt Bike and my wife on a Trike Recumbent. Started at Bashas on Hayden Rd and headed east. The ride was approx 16.5 miles one way; we had lunch in the shade at the Lower Salt River Rec Area Park. We were "very lucky" and saw 4 wild horses just south west of the Granite Reef Dam. CAUTION: Ride only the South Side of the canal and be sure to have plenty of water, no potable water sources or shade anywhere along the canal. However, there are a few dispersed porta-potties. We attempted a few portions on the canal's north-side trail but encountered locked gates and fences. The surface is not suitable for skinny tires.

Sonoqui Wash Trail

Nice Short Ride On a Warm Sunny Day

April, 2022 by rmp49

GPS brought us to intersection of Ellsworth and Riggs Rd. Turning left on Riggs and proceeding approximately 1/4mi, there is a small parking area directly across from the arena and equestrian center. Nice short ride on concrete and asphalt. Signage showed the trail closed from now until 4/28, but very few construction workers and they let us pass and onto the trail. No shade. No potties.
