Took my hybrid road bike, I’m going to go back with my mountain bike I think that’ll be a much better ride. I live on Harris so just jumped on the trail from there. Not a well marked trail at all. I kept going on the wrong sides, missed entrances, etc... once I finally got out to the desert it was beautiful. Just needs to be marked better. Going to try again with my mtb and I’ll prob have a much better rating. ;)
Such a fun trail! It goes on for awhile too!
Used the consolidated path to jump on this path from baseline and Val vista. Loved that the trail was cement and weaved through quiet neighborhoods. Was tree lined a lot of the way. Got to Crossroads and wanted to ride more so it was easy just to stay along canal and take it south for a longer ride. This path has lots of crossings with crosswalks that force cars to stop so it’s safe and a pretty ride. Sometimes can be a little confusing where the path goes next, but overall a good ride.
I jump on the stadium connector in Mesa then on through this trail into Phx. Great long rides for conditioning to help with mountain biking!
You can use the stadium connector to ride from Mesa in to Tempe and Phoenix, or head the other direction and ride into Gilbert! A great paved path with lights!
December 6, 2020 Great riding—trail is clean and well maintained. Rode from Rio Vista north to to end then back to south end—30 miles. Awesome day in Arizona.
I accessed this from a park on Cholla street. My daughter does volley ball at AZ sky and I always look for places for my son to bike and I run along with him. This trail was right there 5-10 min jog from AZ sky volleyball. I just don’t know how to access the canal system from this trail. I start around N19th/cholla street. I am new to to phoenix. If someone knows how to access canal system from this trail please if you can email me- email@example.com. It is a peaceful trail and has some tunnels and parks. Thanks!
A great trail: beautiful scenery, very well kept trails and not heavily trafficked on a weekday. Really the main thing it needs is a better crossing and signage at Thomas and it would be amazing!
We live in Sun City and usually catch the trail at Greenway and 91st. We cross the bridge at the Rio vista and go north cross over past thunderbird park where the trail then parallels the canal. When we ride south we go to just south of Peoria. One time caught the trail at its south end It is slightly uphill going north which wears on you if you start out south and then have to ride uphill at the end. Have seen coyotes road runners along the way. So glad we have easy access to this good trail
We parked at Grand Canal Linear Park and headed east with plans to ride for several hours out and back but turned around after about six miles. The trail was mostly asphalt but there was a significant amount of broken glass on the path and lots of trash along the sides of the trail. There were many road crossings, many rather busy, with no cross walks and no warning signals for oncoming traffic. When we got to Grand Avenue - there was no sidewalk and it was essentially not possible to safely get to a crosswalk to get across this busy road. Compared to some of the other multiuse trails around the city - this one is quite inferior.
So, we decided to meet at Crossroads Park. Unfortunately, there is no pavement from the parking lot to the trail. Luckily, I brought a small pack to put my shoes in. The first section is what I used to dream about when I was younger, and skated hours every day. Super wide path, very smooth concrete, and partly under trees. Not too many people at all. The older parts of the trail aren’t as smooth, or as shady, but they were still great. We skated up to Baseline, and back to the park. Fantastic ride!
The first mile is TOUGH. I roller skated down to downtown Scottsdale. Beautiful maintained trail. Even at night it was gorgeous! I’ll definitely be trying it again during a morning session.
