Not really sure how long this trail really is because it merged into the Indian Bend Wash trail without us knowing it. Still a great ride. Only negative was having to cross streets at the north end of the trail.
Nice safe trail to ride. No traffic to cross. Joins other trails.
I agree with a few of the comments made by others here. I have now ridden this trail a few times and it seems that as you go towards Glendale you will ride through some sketchier areas. There are a lot of surface crossings. Just as you get a good rhythm going, you have to stop. The crossing at 16th and Indian School road is tough. Mostly the surface is clean. One side of the canal is concrete and the other is gravel (with some glass)
10 mile out and back. Apache wash trailhead in the middle. This is rarely busy, scenic and has some shoot offs if you’re a mountain biker or gravel biker.
We’ll kept one turn was in marked but not hard to meet back up with trail . Did see a lot of homeless men under bridges and camped in bushes. Was not crowded the day we went so it was very calming ride.
Yes there are plenty of intersections, but a fun ride in good shape. One of my favorites!
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
Nice Trail, nice nature around and you always meet kind people.
Well paved trail and some great scenery.Easy access from Horseshoe Park.
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!
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!
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
