Crosscut Canal Path

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!

New River Trail

we ride this all the time

November, 2020 by suzanne74

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

Grand Canal Path

Not As Expected

November, 2020 by tammythan

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.

Baseline Road to Eastern Canal Path

Best skate I’ve had in a long time!

October, 2020 by aprillehart

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!

Crosscut Canal Path

beautiful scenery! even at night!

September, 2020 by harrmoeknee

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.

Kyrene Canal Path

One of my two favorites!

July, 2020 by mrhenderson47

Great path with lots of options including turn East at the Ken McDonald golf course parking lot to go to the 101 and ride around the lakes in the ASU research park between Elliot and Warner. But also if traveling north go to Guadalupe and then into Kiwanis Park with a few hills to Baseline. Then you can go west and catch the Highline Canal to go either north or south.

Karen Cooper Trail (Rio North Trail)

Indian Bend Wash Path

A Great Ride

June, 2020 by phildesmond1234

It was 104 @ 9:30, when my wife and I started our ride. It did not matter. The trail winds through parks, golf courses, playgrounds and neighborhoods. You pass people fishing, playing disk golf, kids playing in a water park. It seemed the interesting sights were endless and the terrain was easy. We loved it! But, don’t make the same mistake we did. Turn around at the end of the official trail. We continued on to the 202 bridge, a homeless “hotel”. Then to Tempe Lake. The trail character changes rapidly. Just enjoy the main trail, unless you like more adventure than I do.

Eastern Canal Path

nice trail

June, 2020 by alliepenn

The south end of the trail is closed. You can’t pick it up until around Lindsay and Pecos. Don’t bother trying to start at Riggs. It’s a nice trail, mostly paved. Some parts are gravel, but it’s not bad. There are a few parks along the trail, with shade and branches.

Crosscut Canal Path

Nice trail

May, 2020 by patriciaann73

I haven’t been on a bike for almost 31 years ... yikes. This is a nice paved trail. Good mild hills and dips to get a workout for a beginner like me. I only did 2.4 miles in 25 minutes. It’s a good start. I will definitely be back. side note: restrooms are clean, soap is in dispenser for hand washing. I also like that there are people of all ages, pets, and families on the paths, and that the baths are wide enough for 2 lane traffic.

Consolidated Canal Path

Excellent Walking & Biking Trail

May, 2020 by boston1031

We walk or ride this trail several times every week. Heavier traffic on the weekends but still very open.
