Rio Salado Pathway

Fun Ride again

July, 2019 by res1due

Rode the trail this morning. I started at Rio Salado on the south side at 15th Ave. Was able to ride all the way to Dobson Rd. McClintock Rd was the only place where I was required to cross a road. If you are looking for an east-west, Phoenix to Mesa connector this is a good one.
This section is a wide paved section. I was only on the south side. I didn't ride the north side of the lake this morning. There are plenty of places to pull off and rest. Or even ride off the trail to a store or restaurant.

Consolidated Canal Path

Nice long trail

June, 2019 by rosegvr

I enjoy rising this wide, well travelled path but dont like the shocks from the power lines or that you have to stop and lift your bike over the railroad tracks just west of Gilbert road. Other than that, there are several parks I passed, nice views and some cool fountains by Gilbert road. Overall, I'd much rather be off the main road and will take this path again and again.

Queen Creek Wash Trail

LOVE LOVE LOVE!!

April, 2019 by carlacarson4nin

It's such a beautiful park & the trail is going to be connected to the Sonoqui Trail! The Q.C. Wash Trail leads to another new park in Queen Creek That has fishing, & a fun splash pad. Both parks, & all the trails are just stunning. Everything is well maintained. I take my little girl to both parks & both trails. We ride our bikes, walk our dog, & she rides her scooter too. She loves it all as much as I do.

Consolidated Canal Path

Nice surface, some parts narrow

March, 2019 by susancnett

This trail is a work in progress. We rode about 9 miles, from North Country Club Drive East/South to where the pavement ended. The concrete is smooth and wide in most sections, but became the width of a standard sidewalk near the end.

I hope they continue to pave it, but at least 6 feet wide would be better.

There are also numerous road crossings. Most of them had lights, or where not across heavily traveled roads, but few were pretty busy with no pedestrian crossing lights because they were too close to vehicular intersections.

Consolidated Canal Path

Bike the Canal

February, 2019 by desidmcconnell

A terrific path. We biked it from 8th Street & Harris to Downtown Gilbert. It was quiet, not crowded and a great day!

Mountain Park Ranch - Lakewood Trail

Not worth the trouble

January, 2019 by dtims256

Some busy streets to cross with no crosswalk or lights. For the most part not user friendly. Some parts of trail are very nice but crossing streets with cars going 60 miles an hour is not safe.

Cave Creek Wash Trail

Poorly marked, trash, trails abruptly end

January, 2019 by mlark

There were small portions of the trail starting at the northern end that were nice (Union Hills and 4th) but within a half mile it quickly became trashy. The trails end abruptly and you’re left without a clue which direction to ride. Pressing south the trails became filled with trash and debris until you hit the golf course. There things started looking better but the asphalt along the course was rough and the lawn mowers spewed the cut grass and rocks onto the trail. I’m tempted to start my ride again at the golf course heading south and see how that looks. As I told my friend - there were two things I liked about that ride: 1) the weather was nice and 2) I was in my bicycle. This ride falls to the bottom of my list of trails in this area!

Arizona Canal Path

great to ride in AZ in December

December, 2018 by bkel

Fun ride, but misleading. We got on at N 68th Street in Scottsdale, and it is neither paved or concrete. Very rough ride along the canal. Some parakeets in a tree and some other art along the way, but be advised it isn’t paved the whole way.

Tempe Canal Path

Scary

November, 2018 by sleezer101

The trail is scattered with homeless people, shopping carts, & trash. I don't feel safe. They need to patrol the canal roads & clean them up to make them safe.

Cave Creek Tributary Trail

A lot of gravel

September, 2018 by tmd.dunn

If you are rollerblading, this trail has a fair amount of gravel. If you are an intermediate skater, then it’s probably not a major problem. I can definitely see a beginner taking a few spills.

Sonoqui Wash Trail

Nice trail

July, 2018 by jeffrogordo

This is a nice paved trail, not flat but no big hills. Once on the trail, I only saw one road that had to be crossed while running, the others had underpasses which was nice. This does go partially along a flood zone, so that doesn't happen often but I wouldn't go there after a heavy day/night of rain. Plenty of parking at the Horse Park. I didn't see any obvious restrooms or water fountains. I didn't like the fact that you had to cross Riggs Rd to get to the trail. Riggs Rd is getting widened and about to become a main rd for traffic patterns around the area. It's 5 or 6 lanes wide and no close lights or crosswalks to cross at. All things considered, I'm local so I'll def be back for more runs here. Thankful for all the trails we get to enjoy!

Rio Salado Pathway

Fun Ride

June, 2018 by res1due

First, the map shows the east end at Alma School Rd. The east end is at Dobson Rd. I was there 2 wks ago.
The trail is paved from Dobson to the 143. There is usually some water in the river east of Tempe Town Lake. You can get on/off at Riverview Park in Mesa, Tempe Marketplace, Tempe Town Lake and all the major streets you cross.
It looks like they are going to extend the trail from the 143 to about 32nd St. If they do it will be awesome to be able to ride from 19th Ave in Phoenix to Dobson Rd in Mesa.
