Skunk Creek Trail

Skunk Creek trail

May, 2023 by hcnsdaz

Decided to take my sister and her friend on this path. Had some difficulty finding the park with which to start. Got on the path and found it confusing, with no signs and then found several places where we had to cross major streets with no crossing area,,,so pretty dangerous. Not a well marked path.

Crosscut Canal Path

Good trail, smooth and pretty flat other than a few minor hills. Great for kids and dogs, but busy with bikes and electric scooters so stay alert. No water or toilets along the whole trail and it could use more signs as the are some branches off it.

Indian Bend Wash Path

love this trail

April, 2023 by mapshort

This is an excellent trail with great underpasses for smooth cruising. A bit congested at some of the parks on a Sunday’s in April.


Santa Cruz River Park Trail

easy well kept trail

March, 2023 by kevievn

Picked up the trail from the Julian Wash Greenway. It is an asphalt trail with beautiful landscaping along the way. There could have been better signage because there are several bike paths that intersect and it is easy to get turned around. No homeless people, no unsafe areas. We went on a Monday, late morning. There were some runners and cyclists. Very enjoyable.

Julian Wash Greenway

easy enjoyable ride

March, 2023 by kevievn

Path is easy with beautiful landscaping along the way. Started at the trailhead (I think). The only problem was when we got to the busy intersection where the China Express was. Didn't know where to go from there. Better signage would have helped. So we turned around and went back. Picked up the Santa Cruz River Park trail.

Central Arizona Project to Arizona Canal Trail

Nice ride

March, 2023 by gsauncog

Beginning at north end of trail is at Latitude: 33.632168 / N 33° 37' 55.806" Longitude: -111.873594 / W 111° 52' 24.94' with a parking lot for trailers. Just 1/10 mile down the trail at Latitude: 33.630892 / N 33° 37' 51.213" Longitude: - 111.870908 / W 111° 52' 15.268" is a parking lot and restrooms. Not really sure how long this trail really is because it merged into the Indian Bend Wash trail without us knowing it. Still a great ride. Only negative was having to cross streets at the north end of the trail.

Yuma Crossing Bike Path (Colorado River Levee Multi-Use Path)

Nice little trail

February, 2023 by obgjedi_tl

Very quiet and not too busy

New River Trail

Nice Trail

February, 2023 by janderson7

Nice safe trail to ride. No traffic to cross. Joins other trails.

Grand Canal Path

Grand Canal Trail

February, 2023 by weridehd

I agree with a few of the comments made by others here. I have now ridden this trail a few times and it seems that as you go towards Glendale you will ride through some sketchier areas. There are a lot of surface crossings. Just as you get a good rhythm going, you have to stop. The crossing at 16th and Indian School road is tough. Mostly the surface is clean. One side of the canal is concrete and the other is gravel (with some glass)

Golf Links-Aviation Path

rough ride

February, 2023 by jkabens

Started downtown. Homeless encampments and rough surface first five miles. Chatters your teeth and bike. Maybe a bad batch of asphalt from the start. Would not ride this trail again until resurfaced unless I had to get to work and no other options.

Lake Havasu City Multi-Use Trail

Path along AZ 95 Hwy

January, 2023 by tysona_tl

nice path with some beautiful views. the downside is that it runs right along Hwy 95 with a lot of traffic. has several intersections to navigate across

Lake Havasu City Island Trail

Island loop trail

January, 2023 by tysona_tl

Nice area but way too bumpy for a nice ride. Just needs some TLC
