Southern Canal Path

enjoyable but with conditions

January, 2020 by annmom1

This is a utility road where they put up bike trail signs. Tirned out to be a pleasant ride. There are NO trailheads at either end of the trail. Enter by using the park on horne road and ridingthe road to access the trail. Sections of the trail have washboard and lots of broken glass. Gets prettier as u go north. At t

Rio Salado Pathway

wouldn't return

December, 2019 by astroman

When/If you find yourself on this path it's pretty nice, however It's completely unmarked and abruptly ends in places, as was my experience with all of the Phoenix area trails.

Arizona Canal Path

frustrating

December, 2019 by astroman

For someone new to the area I was horribly frustrated. Finding a trail head was difficult in itself, and there is no overnight trailhead parking. I don't think I ever saw the name of the trail posted anywhere. The trail is mostly the maintenance access route for the canal so there are many no trespassing signs, but that's really the trail. The surface is mixed blacktop, concrete, packed gravel. The underpasses west of Scottsdale are littered with personal belongings and people. Most of the road crossings are unprotected and require dismounting and waiting for traffic. never again.

Rio Salado Pathway

nice clean easy to find trail

December, 2019 by michaeljluna

the parking area in Tempe was easy to find. start with a nice run along the lake. the trail is clean and well lighted for the first couple miles? i don't recall how far before the lights end. i noticed one water fountain near the parking area. bring a water bottle. no trash cans. i carried my empty Huma pack back to the park. pack it out- pack it in. not many people on the trail when i started but when i returned there were many runners and bikers.
trail is concrete ans asphalt. some nice sculptures along the way. runs next to the airport.
i ran 5 miles out and back.
i ran this trail as i'm currently working on an injury. i wanted something easy.

Cañada del Oro River Park Trail

worth the trip from Phoenix

July, 2019 by eileencigala

This trail brings us down from Phoenix for a ride! It is a great workout and so beautiful! Can’t help but be happy on this trail.

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.

Santa Cruz River Park Trail

Great access to fun loops

May, 2019 by mteodori

It is easy to access the Santa Cruz River Park Trail from the Rillito River Trail just west of the I-10. You can access this starting point by parking or riding to anywhere on the Loop Trail system in Pima County. I ride up north along the Santa Cruz scenic riparian habitat, and this is an enjoyable river grade ride returning the same route. Instead of returning as I came, I use the local roads to connect to some of the possible loops. Both Twin Peaks and Picture Rock are pretty going west (though the bike lanes are narrow) to access Saguaro National Park West; I then return via the McCain Loop and over Gates Pass which is a great hill climb with beautiful desert scenery, and gives access back to the Santa Cruz Trail, or downtown Tucson, as you desire. Instead of going west on Twin Peaks or Picture Rock, I can stay on a more level ride going east on Twin Peaks, and continue on Tangerine Rd or Moore Rd at Dove Mountain. There are good bike lanes on these roads, which take you over to the Canada Del Oro bike path near Catalina State Park. This gives a nice return ride to the Rillito River Trail. Depending on where you start on the extensive Loop Trails, and as long as you don't mind mixing in some riding on roads with decent bike lanes, you can do some beautiful loops of 40-70 miles with views of the Santa Cruz River, Catalina's Mountains, and Tucson Mountains.

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.
