Eastern Canal Path

Great Ride!

May, 2024 by rp9b8bpx6b

There’s lots of street crossings, but it wasn’t that big of a deal. You just have to keep your eyes open. Maybe half of the trail was smooth between compacted dirt and concrete. The rest was fairly rough and gravely. Highly recommend it.

Central Arizona Project to Arizona Canal Trail

Nicely Done, Scottsdale!

April, 2024 by carlosdww1

Beautiful path and very, very clean. Completed entire path from south to north and back again and my only suggestion is to add a crosswalk crossing N 100th St to and from Horizon Park at the north end. This will keep cyclists and pedestrians much safer. Otherwise, I felt extremely safe the rest of the way. Loved it!

Consolidated Canal Path

Excellent jogging trail

March, 2024 by joenad55

Started out at Hohokam Park and went five miles on it up and back. There are street crossings, but there are red light pushbutton traffic stops so the street can be crossed with little interruption. Only issue I have is lack of benches.

Rio Salado Pathway

Wonderful, paved, car-free trail that runs for miles!

February, 2024 by sag_tl

I started the trail at Riverview Park, near the Spring Training home of the Cubs. I rode west for over 10 miles, through Tempe, past views of the Sky Harbor, to the trail terminus in Phoenix. Then turned back, crossed the spectacular pedestrian bridge, and rode the north trail segment, before heading back to Riverview Park.

The trail is clean, well maintained, marked, lit in sections for nighttime riding, scenic in many spots, and overall a great PHX cycling experience. Strongly recommend, and can't wait to do again, and/or take the connection to the longer trail that runs all the way to Scottsdale for a full day in the saddle.

Prescott Peavine National Recreation Trail

correction on prior review

February, 2024 by marthaallyn

Take the right fork to continue onto Iron King Trail.

Prescott Peavine National Recreation Trail

disappointing trail conditions

February, 2024 by marthaallyn

After reading the reviews for this trail, we were surprised at the very lose gravel (?) and excessive mud. We were riding on a warm (mid-50s) day following a snowfall the week prior. The first 3.5 miles from the trailhead off of Prescott Lake parkway offered interesting views and geological features. The next 2 miles was in an area being developed for homes. Nothing special despite the signage talking about the loss of prairie habitat. We should have taken the left fork onto Iron King Trail.

Consolidated Canal Path

Too many crossings

January, 2024 by reserve.tpritchett

This is a very smooth trail, but way to many road crossings. In some sections, about .4 miles apart. We biked about 25 miles today, and averaged about 8 mph. Sadly, seems like all trails in Mesa are similar to this.

Lake Havasu City Island Trail

resurfacing in January 2024

January, 2024 by agirlcyclist

The sections that have been completed are nice and smooth. Older sections rough and cracked.

Cañada del Oro River Park Trail

Great Asphalt Trail - well maintained

December, 2023 by gc4

Started at Thornydale and rode NE. As others have noted, the trail climbs very gradually going NE which makes the return ride easy. Did 5 miles out and 5 miles back. Scenery is pretty with mountains in the distance. Saw a few other cyclists on the trail and a couple people walking dogs. Drove down from Phoenix to ride this trail and will definitely ride this trail again; will also explore the rest of the Loop.

Queen Creek Wash Trail

Great Trail a little bumpy

November, 2023 by sararoth551

I love this trail. They did some work on the path and it is really bumpy for road bikes. You can ride to Power and head over to Sonoqui. I can get a good 22 miles in on this loop. Pros: I feel very safe on this trail. You are by houses and no matter the time of day other people are out. Cons: really bumpy for a road bike

Shea Boulevard Trail

This is an asphalt and concrete trail only if you ride on Shea Boulevard. You could easily get run over on a Shea.

Grand Canyon Greenway

Challenging trail with abundance of wildlife

October, 2023 by bethredeker1

This is a nice paved trail. We saw several elk, tarantulas, snakes, and deer. It is almost all uphill one way and almost all downhill returning so when we rode out with all the challenging hills, the coast back was nice. There are some areas that it is bumpy. Overall beautiful and you can bike right into the Grand Canyon Park so you can avoid the line getting in.
