Arizona Canal Path

Nice path, beautiful views, access to necessities

April, 2021 by thomgirl673

We started the Arizona Canal Trail at N Arcadia Street, where we found parking in the small lot beside the trail. We rode behind residences for a few miles, some stop-n-go to cross intersections, then we began a stretch of really beautiful properties with flowering bushes and trees. We rode thru the Biltmore District, past the Wrigley Mansion, which was gorgeous! The intersections included mostly underground tunnels making it a steady ride with no traffic. Nice 3 hour, 22 mile ride. Ended up at Cave Creek Park, then headed back. Plenty of park restrooms along the path, as well.

Queen Creek Wash Trail

very nice for beginners

March, 2021 by jennylsand

Flat for the most part, just long enough at 10 miles round trip! Some nice views too.

Western Canal Path

Really should be TWO separate trails

March, 2021 by barryaz1

EAST of I-10, this is a nice, mostly-paved trail, and you will enjoy the company of may cyclists and joggers. I especially enjoyed the Riparian Preserve at Water Ranch. It's a great little detour off the path, with its own network of rideable dirt paths, families, and lots of birds. This section of the path also goes right through the commercial heart of Gilbert, with many nice restaurants. It also connects to the very nice Consolidated Canal paved path, running north-south. This is a nice path for any kind of bicycle, as well as for walking and running. Every road crossing of any size has a dedicated crosswalk and signal.

WEST of I-10 is the rough dirt/gravel path along the canal. It's a somewhat depressed area of Phoenix. It doesn't connect to other paths, and there are few amenities. Not a good path for a road bike of any kind. Most crossings have no markings or signals. On a recent nice-weather day, I saw no other bikers (but plenty of wanderers that I gave a wide berth).

For the WESTERN stretch, there is a partially-paved alternative east-west path about a mile to the south (south of Baseline Road). The asphalt (in early 2021) is not in a good state of repair, but you will have the company of a few cyclists and joggers.

IN BETWEEN the EAST and WEST is the freeway crossing at Baseline Road. This is a very busy intersection at all times, with lots of turning traffic. Dangerous.

I'd stick with the EASTERN stretch of the "Western" Canal Path.

Consolidated Canal Path

Wonderful canal trail!

February, 2021 by scratssun

February 22, 2021 First time on the Consolidated Bike Trail and our best AZ ride. We 78 & 79 bike the full 39 miles starting from Stadium parking lot to Riggs Road and back. We enjoyed the scenery including parks, residential sections, and rural landscape. We saw turtles in the canal as well as a heron and lots if fish. The ducks on the trail absolutely refused to move for riders so we went around them!! 75 degrees out!! Cleand well maintained trail. We will be back.

Eastern Canal Path

Not Smooth or Paved Enough for Skating :(

February, 2021 by momokarinyo

Really was looking forward to having a path to skate on that was connected to my neighborhood (Near Val Vista and Williams Field) but so much of this area is dirt or gravel, it would not be possible. Even the areas that are paved can be rough, or are laden with loose rocks, problematic if you’re riding on smaller wheels like on roller skates. This would otherwise be a nice trail if it were consistent smooth pavement, but for me I have to go elsewhere for skating. It is also worth noting you will encounter many busy roads to cross, so if you are learning to skate or want to move at a slow pace such as with children or the like, I would recommend Queen Creek or Sonoqui Wash trails to the south.

Southern Canal Path

ok, but didn’t go all the way to the dam...YET

January, 2021 by summershayallen

Took my hybrid road bike, I’m going to go back with my mountain bike I think that’ll be a much better ride. I live on Harris so just jumped on the trail from there. Not a well marked trail at all. I kept going on the wrong sides, missed entrances, etc... once I finally got out to the desert it was beautiful. Just needs to be marked better. Going to try again with my mtb and I’ll prob have a much better rating. ;)

Baseline Road to Eastern Canal Path

So much fun!

January, 2021 by haleyanne27

Such a fun trail! It goes on for awhile too!

Baseline Road to Eastern Canal Path

great trail off beaten path

January, 2021 by summershayallen

Used the consolidated path to jump on this path from baseline and Val vista. Loved that the trail was cement and weaved through quiet neighborhoods. Was tree lined a lot of the way. Got to Crossroads and wanted to ride more so it was easy just to stay along canal and take it south for a longer ride. This path has lots of crossings with crosswalks that force cars to stop so it’s safe and a pretty ride. Sometimes can be a little confusing where the path goes next, but overall a good ride.

Rio Salado Pathway

fun ride!

January, 2021 by summershayallen

I jump on the stadium connector in Mesa then on through this trail into Phx. Great long rides for conditioning to help with mountain biking!

Stadium Connector Shared Use Pathway

easy and fun ride

January, 2021 by summershayallen

You can use the stadium connector to ride from Mesa in to Tempe and Phoenix, or head the other direction and ride into Gilbert! A great paved path with lights!

Crosscut Canal Path

A great trail: beautiful scenery, very well kept trails and not heavily trafficked on a weekday. Really the main thing it needs is a better crossing and signage at Thomas and it would be amazing!

Grand Canal Path

Not As Expected

November, 2020 by tammythan

We parked at Grand Canal Linear Park and headed east with plans to ride for several hours out and back but turned around after about six miles. The trail was mostly asphalt but there was a significant amount of broken glass on the path and lots of trash along the sides of the trail. There were many road crossings, many rather busy, with no cross walks and no warning signals for oncoming traffic. When we got to Grand Avenue - there was no sidewalk and it was essentially not possible to safely get to a crosswalk to get across this busy road. Compared to some of the other multiuse trails around the city - this one is quite inferior.
