Sinclair Wash Trail

Fort Bike Park

May, 2021 by loraleecampbell

Check out the bike park. It was really neat and fun!

Sinclair Wash Trail

Fun Trail

May, 2021 by loraleecampbell

The moth end takes you through the wash, firm dirt surface. Very nice for biking. The trail goes further north than indicated on map. Goes alongside the university and down into countryside. South end of trail under construction but they do have you rerouted on a alternate path. Fun ride. Past a half dozen people maybe.

San Francisco Trail

nice byway

May, 2021 by loraleecampbell

This trail almost connects the wash trail and the rt. 66 trail. Nice wide pathway next to road.

Arizona Trail (Flagstaff)

Arizona Trail

May, 2021 by loraleecampbell

Probably better suited for mountain biking, jogging or hiking. Very rough at times so I would not categorize this as road biking. Beautiful scenery!

Route 66 Trail

Wide bike way parallels road. Fun for history sake. Mountains in background are beautiful.

Grand Canyon Greenway

Wonderful Way to Experience the Canyon!!!

May, 2021 by donnasvei

We were pleasantly surprised by the two cycling paths along the Canyon's South Rim. Thus, if you're questioning whether or not to take your bikes, take them!

It will just be you and the buses on the road (not too many of them in early May and piloted by extremely courteous drivers). Enjoy the Canyon on one side of the road and a beautiful, fragrant pine forest on the other side.

Pedal along, stop at all the stunning viewpoints, enjoy.

BTW, if you don't have bikes, you can rent them inside the Park.

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. ¿

Grand Canyon Greenway

Hermit Road, Grand Canyon

April, 2021 by jdfcsc

I rode Grand Canyon greenway to Hermit road then up Hermit road to Hermit’s rest, a relatively quiet and spectacular ride. The only motor traffic was buses, which slow to give you time to pull over before they pass. Several miles of route are on parallel off road path. Great way to see the overlooks on western side of south rim area!

Arizona Canal Path

Nice path, beautiful views, access to necessities

April, 2021 by thomgirl673

We started the Arizona Canal Trail at N Arcadia Street, where we found parking in the small lot beside the trail. We rode behind residences for a few miles, some stop-n-go to cross intersections, then we began a stretch of really beautiful properties with flowering bushes and trees. We rode thru the Biltmore District, past the Wrigley Mansion, which was gorgeous! The intersections included mostly underground tunnels making it a steady ride with no traffic. Nice 3 hour, 22 mile ride. Ended up at Cave Creek Park, then headed back. Plenty of park restrooms along the path, as well.

Rillito River Park Trail

wow!

April, 2021 by j4hkydg8qm

Worth the drive from Phoenix to do this. Got off at Ina and left from the first parking lot. Went all the way to Craycroft where we thought the trail ended (it looks like it) don’t be fooled go up, cross over and it keeps going and going. We went 20+ and turned around. Delightful! Enough bathrooms. Options for lunch if you go off path and go to a main road. Seating areas in the shade for a break. Lots of cyclists on a weekday hot morning.

Queen Creek Wash Trail

very nice for beginners

March, 2021 by jennylsand

Flat for the most part, just long enough at 10 miles round trip! Some nice views too.
