Santa Cruz River Park Trail

Great access to fun loops

May, 2019 by mteodori

It is easy to access the Santa Cruz River Park Trail from the Rillito River Trail just west of the I-10. You can access this starting point by parking or riding to anywhere on the Loop Trail system in Pima County. I ride up north along the Santa Cruz scenic riparian habitat, and this is an enjoyable river grade ride returning the same route. Instead of returning as I came, I use the local roads to connect to some of the possible loops. Both Twin Peaks and Picture Rock are pretty going west (though the bike lanes are narrow) to access Saguaro National Park West; I then return via the McCain Loop and over Gates Pass which is a great hill climb with beautiful desert scenery, and gives access back to the Santa Cruz Trail, or downtown Tucson, as you desire. Instead of going west on Twin Peaks or Picture Rock, I can stay on a more level ride going east on Twin Peaks, and continue on Tangerine Rd or Moore Rd at Dove Mountain. There are good bike lanes on these roads, which take you over to the Canada Del Oro bike path near Catalina State Park. This gives a nice return ride to the Rillito River Trail. Depending on where you start on the extensive Loop Trails, and as long as you don't mind mixing in some riding on roads with decent bike lanes, you can do some beautiful loops of 40-70 miles with views of the Santa Cruz River, Catalina's Mountains, and Tucson Mountains.

Rillito River Park Trail

great trail

May, 2019 by scytheborg

area was clean, stayed on the north side and enjoyed our views of Tucson. would recommend to anyone!

Iron King Trail (Prescott to Prescott Valley)

Beautiful Trail

May, 2019 by djjunk64

Starting out in Prescott Valley can be a bit tricky as there building new homes in the area so the trail actually starts up the Santa Fe road and not at the intersection. (you can still park at the trail-head but you have to ride your bike up the Santa Fe road till it ends then cross the road and follow the sidewalk to the trail). Once you get past the houses and actually on the trail it's quite lovely, rolling grasses and beautiful Glassford Hill to start out then you will come up to the giant boulders and follow that into a bountiful boulder paradise to enjoy and take photo's. The trail will move forward and you'll have access to the back side of Watson Lake and some amazing views between the boulders, this will continue and you'll wind up coming to the Pevine trail-head. if you continue on the main trail you will go all the way to Hwy 89a. This should be around a 7 mile ride one way so make sure you have plenty of water for you adventure. There is a full bathroom and water fountain at this ending so you should be good to fill up for the return trip.

Queen Creek Wash Trail

LOVE LOVE LOVE!!

April, 2019 by carlacarson4nin

It's such a beautiful park & the trail is going to be connected to the Sonoqui Trail! The Q.C. Wash Trail leads to another new park in Queen Creek That has fishing, & a fun splash pad. Both parks, & all the trails are just stunning. Everything is well maintained. I take my little girl to both parks & both trails. We ride our bikes, walk our dog, & she rides her scooter too. She loves it all as much as I do.

Harrison Greenway

Best of the best.

March, 2019 by gniston197

This section of the Tucson loop has beautiful mountain views to the north and east. It cuts right through the desert with lots of large cactus and no cars or other roads around. It is like a bike freeway. It is part of the entire Tucson loop so you can keep going around Tucson for about 100 miles.

Consolidated Canal Path

Nice surface, some parts narrow

March, 2019 by susancnett

This trail is a work in progress. We rode about 9 miles, from North Country Club Drive East/South to where the pavement ended. The concrete is smooth and wide in most sections, but became the width of a standard sidewalk near the end.

I hope they continue to pave it, but at least 6 feet wide would be better.

There are also numerous road crossings. Most of them had lights, or where not across heavily traveled roads, but few were pretty busy with no pedestrian crossing lights because they were too close to vehicular intersections.

Rillito River Park Trail

Rillito River Park Trail

February, 2019 by thejake91739

Back in February of 2014 we completed a weekday morning ride from the Rillito River Park Access parking lot to trails end at Craycroft Road and then back.
Great Arizona winter weather, beautiful mountain vistas, artful bridges, and a fairly flat, smooth trail made this ride a delight (although we did notice it seemed ever so slightly downhill which made for some easy pedaling on the way to Craycroft Road).
The trail was especially popular with walkers, joggers, and roadrunners, so be alert.
It didn't take us long to complete the loop, so for a couple of tourists from SoCal we used the afternoon to visit the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum!

Consolidated Canal Path

Bike the Canal

February, 2019 by desidmcconnell

A terrific path. We biked it from 8th Street & Harris to Downtown Gilbert. It was quiet, not crowded and a great day!

Mountain Park Ranch - Lakewood Trail

Not worth the trouble

January, 2019 by dtims256

Some busy streets to cross with no crosswalk or lights. For the most part not user friendly. Some parts of trail are very nice but crossing streets with cars going 60 miles an hour is not safe.

Cave Creek Wash Trail

Poorly marked, trash, trails abruptly end

January, 2019 by mlark

There were small portions of the trail starting at the northern end that were nice (Union Hills and 4th) but within a half mile it quickly became trashy. The trails end abruptly and you’re left without a clue which direction to ride. Pressing south the trails became filled with trash and debris until you hit the golf course. There things started looking better but the asphalt along the course was rough and the lawn mowers spewed the cut grass and rocks onto the trail. I’m tempted to start my ride again at the golf course heading south and see how that looks. As I told my friend - there were two things I liked about that ride: 1) the weather was nice and 2) I was in my bicycle. This ride falls to the bottom of my list of trails in this area!

Mohave and Milltown Railroad Trail

Take a miss on this experience.

December, 2018 by judilmcintosh

Nothing to see, only Razors and dust.

Arizona Canal Path

great to ride in AZ in December

December, 2018 by bkel

Fun ride, but misleading. We got on at N 68th Street in Scottsdale, and it is neither paved or concrete. Very rough ride along the canal. Some parakeets in a tree and some other art along the way, but be advised it isn’t paved the whole way.
