Consolidated Canal Path

Wonderful canal trail!

February, 2021 by scratssun

February 22, 2021 First time on the Consolidated Bike Trail and our best AZ ride. We 78 & 79 bike the full 39 miles starting from Stadium parking lot to Riggs Road and back. We enjoyed the scenery including parks, residential sections, and rural landscape. We saw turtles in the canal as well as a heron and lots if fish. The ducks on the trail absolutely refused to move for riders so we went around them!! 75 degrees out!! Cleand well maintained trail. We will be back.

Rillito River Park Trail

Love this path!

February, 2021 by krissie3331

I have logged literally 1000s of miles on this path both day and night, from Craycroft to Marana and have always felt safe. Gorgeous views and friendly people.

Eastern Canal Path

Not Smooth or Paved Enough for Skating :(

February, 2021 by momokarinyo

Really was looking forward to having a path to skate on that was connected to my neighborhood (Near Val Vista and Williams Field) but so much of this area is dirt or gravel, it would not be possible. Even the areas that are paved can be rough, or are laden with loose rocks, problematic if you’re riding on smaller wheels like on roller skates. This would otherwise be a nice trail if it were consistent smooth pavement, but for me I have to go elsewhere for skating. It is also worth noting you will encounter many busy roads to cross, so if you are learning to skate or want to move at a slow pace such as with children or the like, I would recommend Queen Creek or Sonoqui Wash trails to the south.

Southern Canal Path

ok, but didn’t go all the way to the dam...YET

January, 2021 by summershayallen

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. ;)

Baseline Road to Eastern Canal Path

So much fun!

January, 2021 by haleyanne27

Such a fun trail! It goes on for awhile too!

Baseline Road to Eastern Canal Path

great trail off beaten path

January, 2021 by summershayallen

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.

Rio Salado Pathway

fun ride!

January, 2021 by summershayallen

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!

Stadium Connector Shared Use Pathway

easy and fun ride

January, 2021 by summershayallen

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!

Pantano River Park Trail

A few difficult spots for beginner roller blader

December, 2020 by misty17

I skated from the parking lot at E 22nd to Michael Perry Park & back. On the way there, there were two spots with hills but I was able to manage them ok as a beginner skater, although it did feel a bit fast on the downhill. On the way back, I did the first downhill slope & it felt too fast for me & I felt off-balance a few times. When I got to the 2nd downhill, I chose to take the side path onto the sidewalk along the street & ended up taking that all the way back because there wasn't a great spot to cross back over. I would consider myself a beginner but did used to roller blade a lot indoors around 28 years ago, so not completely new to roller blading.

The trail is nice & it was fun to skate while my kids rode their bikes, then have that break at the park before returning.

New River Trail

Wonderful trail

December, 2020 by scratssun

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.

Cave Creek Wash Trail

Nice Trail

December, 2020 by emailrashi

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- emailrashi@gmail.com. It is a peaceful trail and has some tunnels and parks. Thanks!

Prescott Peavine National Recreation Trail

Beautiful trail - just wish it was longer!

November, 2020 by dsgoldstein1

The southern half of the Peavine trail presents some of the most spectacular scenery I've seen on a bike trail. However, from the 3-mile mark (where the Iron King Trail meets the Peavine) northward is pleasant enough, but nothing special. If you want to get the most scenery in the shortest distance, start at the south trailhead of the Peavine, go north to Point of Rocks and bear right on the Iron King Trail. Turn around after about two miles once the trail begins to enter housing areas. That would give you a 10-mile total round trip back to the south trailhead of the Peavine.

Also note that the junction of the Peavine and Iron King trails has only a small sign indicating which trail is which. By the time you can read it, you've gone past it. If you intend to stay on the Peavine, bear LEFT at the fork. For the Iron King, bear RIGHT.
