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 (Prescott to Prescott Valley)

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 (Prescott to Prescott Valley)

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

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.

yay, it's smooth

I rode this trail with my mom and her friend and we absolutely loved it!! I love that there was a box car on the side, some rail tiles still in places on the side, the scenery, and the actual trail itself. This is a truly beautiful trail.

Prescott Peavine National Recreation Trail

Whoa What A Trail

March, 2017 by heochief

We rode this trail in March of 2017. This was all in part with the Iron King Trail. This trail is a simple short ride that has moderate hills and offers spectacular scenery throughout. The dells were my favorite. There is also a side trail near the West Trailhead that will take you to the opposite side of the lake, The view there is just as spectacular. The trail is in great condition and nominal traffic. A hidden gem in Arizona.

Iron King Trail (Prescott to Prescott Valley)

WOW Just WOW !!!!

March, 2017 by heochief

We rode this trail in March of 2017 including the connecting Peavine trail. In the past. We have traveled across the country and rode some grand trails. The Iron King Trail is short but grand and offers scenery that is gorgeous. Many stops to take photos and just take in the beauty this trail has to offer. We rode out from the Trailhead on Glassford Hill Road. It has a dirt parking area. Going from the south on Glassford Hill Road. The trail is between Spouse Dr. and Santa Fe Loop Road. The trail will take you through a underpass that you will need to walk your bike through as the sand is very deep or you can cross Glassford Hill Road at the light. Either will put you on a large sidewalk that goes through a residential area before entering the trail. The trail is a gradual up hill climb for most of the way from the Glassford Hill Road Trailhead to the Prescott Peavine junction. The trail parallels open fields that cause a bit of a windy condition but only for a mile. The trail connects with the Prescott Peavine Trail and I encourage one to take that trail as the scenery only gets better. Short trail packed with a ton of photo moments and fantastic scenery. There are a couple of single track trails that are legal to go on and we hiked them. There is also plenty of signage of private property too. Over all between all the trails we did 20 miles. Well worth the time.
