Iron King Trail

Beautiful Trail

May, 2019 by djjunk64

Starting out in Prescott Valley can be a bit tricky as there building new homes in the area so the trail actually starts up the Santa Fe road and not at the intersection. (you can still park at the trail-head but you have to ride your bike up the Santa Fe road till it ends then cross the road and follow the sidewalk to the trail). Once you get past the houses and actually on the trail it's quite lovely, rolling grasses and beautiful Glassford Hill to start out then you will come up to the giant boulders and follow that into a bountiful boulder paradise to enjoy and take photo's. The trail will move forward and you'll have access to the back side of Watson Lake and some amazing views between the boulders, this will continue and you'll wind up coming to the Pevine trail-head. if you continue on the main trail you will go all the way to Hwy 89a. This should be around a 7 mile ride one way so make sure you have plenty of water for you adventure. There is a full bathroom and water fountain at this ending so you should be good to fill up for the return trip.

High Country Trail

great trail for beginners and medium level riders

Great time hills not to steep and pretty decent trail we took our new tandem out for a great time.

Iron King Trail

Great potential - not so great for triking/biking

June, 2018 by anthony.malovrh

Moved to Prescott Valley April 2016. Rode my recumbent trike a few miles on the Iron King from the East end, which starts on the east side of Glassford Hill Rd, and runs along Santa Fe Loop road to begin with. Dual track - think dirt road with one lane, with washouts and small rocks scattered alonside it. Not a great biking/triking trail. Not good for pushing a baby buggy, roller blading, or even riding a road bike. Great scenery as you ride west toward the Peavine Trail, but keep your eyes on the trail to avoid potholes, sand, etc. Would be so much nicer if paved.

Iron King Trail

What Happened?

February, 2018 by barbararthomas

My husband and I have hiked this beautiful Trail for a year and a half(moving to the Southwest). We returned the other evening after a six month absence. I was disappointed and saddened by what we encountered.
Chain linked fences and a housing development. The GREEDY Land Developers wasted no time,did they? Remembering when on one side there were Pronghorns grazing,on the other side Cows. SHAMEFUL!!! We will not be returning to this uglyness.

Sinclair Wash Trail

Ranks pretty high in my book

December, 2017 by parajared

It's a decent trail to escape to escape the Arizona heat. Even in the middle of July still a cool ride through the shade of the Flagstaff Pine trees. It does a great job of linking up to the NAU trail which is worth a look (interesting buildings architecturally), the Arizona Trail and the Route 66 trail but doesn't really link to Mars Hill trail very nicely, a roughly one mile elbow ticker of a ride down the skinny shoulder of RT 66 involved in the effort.

Dirt trail but suitable for recumbent trike.

Route 66 Trail

Basically a sidepath along a busy road...

November, 2017 by pedalfree

Our travels brought us through Flagstaff and I wanted to stop and ride. I chose this trail mostly because it seemed as though it would be the easiest to find and parking was convenient. We parked at the visitors center which is in the old train depot downtown. It also serves as a working Amtrak station, which is very cool.

The trail heads east from here along Old Route 66. There are some relatively easy climbs but many grade crossings and all the challenges that typically come with sidepaths including right turning motorists.

That said, I really liked this trail for a couple of reasons. One, there were a lot of people on it even though it was a cold, gray morning. It's obvious that a lot of people in Flagstaff use their bikes for transportation and since this trail is along a major thoroughfare, that makes it a great resource.

Second, the trail itself is in good shape. It's mostly concrete and relatively smooth. There are signs where it intersects with the Arizona Trail and route finding was very easy. Come to think of it, there was a lot of connectivity here. I like that.

Finally, the sights along Old Route 66 are kind of cool. You'd miss a lot of it in a car but because you're going a little slower on a bike you see more.

At the end of the day, this is the type of path that I think is really important for cities to build, maintain and support. Are there prettier places to cycle? Absolutely. Is it the best recreation route? Probably not, although downtown Flagstaff is a lot of fun and it's worth reserving an hour or so to explore. Most importantly from my perspective, the Route 66 Trail is very good transportation corridor and for that reason I'm giving it five stars. Well done, Flagstaff.

PV Pipeline Trail

ducks ,parks and water fountains

November, 2017 by parajared

Trail actually terminates at Maverick gas station unlike Traillink's description. From Maverick you can connect to Iron King via Bison, Antelope, Prescott East Highway.

Grinder hilly on the north end of town, very gradual uphill winding through town the rest of the way. Surface is suitable for trikes and wheelchairs, the north section is unfit for inline skating due to the gnarly hills but from the park onwards fine.

3/5 stars because you have multiple road crossings, but redeeming in that it's actually fairly scenic.

Chino Valley Peavine Trail

Love this trail for an easy day ride on horseback, very peaceful.

Chino Valley Peavine Trail

the thick, loose soil gets really boggy

October, 2017 by parajared

Unlike Precott Peavine the trail isn't used as much and the cinder is pretty think in spots. Fatbike users and hikers will like this trail but regular tires mush deep into the loose soil making for a heck of a chug on a regular bike.

Prescott Peavine National Recreation Trail

yay, it's smooth

October, 2017 by parajared

dirt, but smooth enough to ride my recumbent trike on
