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 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

Sonoqui Wash Trail

Very Sunny, quiet

June, 2021 by uiblecrowson

We connected this with the parallel Queen Creek Wash. Trail just north to make a nice ~14 mile loop, parking at the Chapman Horse Arena. This was flat and very do-able, especially compared to other trails in the NW Valley where we live and a stark contrast to the canal trails in Phoenix that have broken glass, trash and are dotted with belongings of transient/homeless. Not busy at all and borders agricultural/equestrian real estate. Could use signage on whether to use cross-overs or continue on trail (straight).

This loop is accomplishable BUT with current construction for major shopping complex at Ellsworth and Riggs traveling N/S, it is not advisable. Bike lane is non-existent in places and no sidewalk in others so no kids on that part! Traveling down Power Road (at the other end, connecting with QC, it is a beautiful sidewalk AND bike lanes. Queen Creek is working hard to be welcoming AND improving the quality of life for their residents. Sure will look forward to returning when construction is finished and path is potentially extended!
NOTE: Either take Maricopa Trail (not paved!) from Parking Lot at the West end or go across Riggs to where the actually paved trail is to avoid the gravel and dirt.

Queen Creek Wash Trail

Beautiful and Shady

June, 2021 by uiblecrowson

We connected this with the parallel Sono. Trail jut south to make a nice ~14 mile loop, parking at the Chapman Horse Arena. This was DELIGHTFUL, especially compared to other trails in the NW Valley where we live and a stark contrast to the canal trails in Phoenix that have broken glass, trash and are dotted with belongings of transient/homeless. Busy early on a Saturday morning but people were friendly! Primarily residential and foresee that Queen Creek may well extend this as the population continues to explode. VERY NICE and kudos to the city for this amazing amenity!

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. ¿
