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.

Eastern Canal Path

Great trail

April, 2022 by heathertaxteach

Had a very nice ride on this trail. we stopped about 1/2 way to have a nice picnic lunch.

New River Trail

Nice trail, good pavement, minimal shade

March, 2022 by stvatandem

My wife and I started our ride at the Fletcher Heights Trailhead at W Deer Valley Rd and rode south to where the trail crosses N Ball Park Rd (near the Grand Canal Trail) before turning back. The trail is well paved with concrete. There is no tree cover, but the overpasses do provide shade.

Grand Canal Path

Nice section in Glendale

March, 2022 by pcraze

I parked at the Glendale Heroes Regional Park by the playground/restrooms. To access the canal trail, ride on the trail around the lake and it connects to the canal trail. Head east under the underpass and enjoy a pleasant ride along residential areas and the Grand Canal Linear Park. When you reach 75th Ave & Camelback Rd just turn around as their are no underpasses any further and you have to cross busy roads. I continue further to 59th Ave, but it was scary to cross busy roads without lights and parts of the path became loose gravel. Also the neighbor hood deteriorated into areas of blight. with no past the library to get on the trail around the lake

Queen Creek Wash Trail

We started at Desert Mountain Park and went NW to the end at Power, then all the way back to the other end, then back to the park, making a 10+ mile round trip. There are underpasses for roads and thick trees in places with wildlife, really lovely.

Arizona Canal Path

Road bike travel

March, 2022 by aires4952

The majority of the canal is fantastic, however trying to get through the underpaths on the I-17, 43rd Peoria, 51rst and Cactus is dangerous. The underpaths are filled with trash, shopping carts, bonfires, strollers, dogs and homeless people. The worst area is crossing the underpath on 51rst and Cactus. It used to be kept clean and clear but no longer.
