Indian Bend Wash Path

Looking for the Statues?

January, 2022 by peasenh

We liked the trail. Started at the Tempe Marketplace and rode Rio Saldo Path North side till it met the Indian Bend Pathway. We were stoked to see the Horse Head display Called Watermark by Laura Haddam as seen on the photo gallery for this trail.... NOT!! The Watermark feature is on an off-shoot Rd/trail adjacent to the Indian Bend Wash Path. If you want to see it, do your homework first.
On a great note, traillink shows Indian Bend Wash Path in two segments, it does continue in the void area but it is sidewalk along major roads of Scottsdale.
Lastly, when you get the Cholla Blvd, the trail signs stop... DON'T STOP here. The trail continues but the signs say Maricopa Trail.
We did not have any electronic device to help us thru, we just winged it and had fun. Lot's of people using the trail.... Love It!!

Mountain Park Ranch - Lakewood Trail

I think Lakewood is Private

November, 2021 by rgsparber

The section of the trail passing through Lakewood is marked private. It is only for the residents that own it collectively. The signs are easy to miss.


New River Trail

great trail for a bike ride

November, 2021 by 22t24f4fdh

easy to follow and mostly flat. Great for all skill levels

Eastern Canal Path

Goatheads and major roads

September, 2021 by jleyring

The trail is convenient to get on with lots of access points. Most of the portion I rode was paved and smooth trail. The north end was pretty ruff. My biggest complaint is that you have to stop every half mile to cross a major road and many didnt have crosswalks. Didnt like having to dart quickly across 4 lanes of traffic. Lots of goatheads as well. Every time I rode this path I seemed to pick up 2 or 3 in the tires

West Skip Rimsza Paseo Trail

along roadway

July, 2021 by syd.kernica

the main trailhead or trails are not handicapped/disabled accessible. this limited mapped area is mostly adjacent to the roadway, only a small section and rarely used. tons of high speed traffic on this roadway. also the sidewalk is only on one side of the road...so you have to go back/forth on the same side. not recommended. // the actual trailhead is loaded with mountain bikers most of the time. //. these trailheads really need to do a better job of grooming some of the paths

New River Trail

Decent Paved Trail

June, 2021 by pete2288

Paved trail that parallels the 101 freeway. There is a park with bathrooms and one porta-potty along the trail. Was not too crowded when I rode it. I would ride it again

New River Trail

Love the beauty of the entire trail

May, 2021 by wadeweber1973

Wow....what a perfect trail for all age groups and abilities. On a Saturday morning in May, My fiancé and I had a great experience riding from the very north end of the trail on Happy Valley from our house in Terramar and rode all the way to have lunch at Westgate and then headed back home. There are a few interruptions of the trail close to Happy Valley Road but we still stuck to the path. We can’t wait to take the New River Trail again soon.

New River Trail

Great trail for getting mileage in, off road

April, 2021 by dmc6368

Took my road bike here and got a good 32 mile in. Nice underpasses to avoid crossing roads. Lots of sun. Next time I’ll start about 730am. Friendly riders and happy people along the route. ¿

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.

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.

New River Trail

Good late “winter” ride

March, 2021 by wallbaumt

Nice and easy with good underpass elevation changes and a decent amount of curves. Glad it was March 19 and already very warm. Can’t imagine what dead of summer would be like.
