West Skip Rimsza Paseo Trail

along roadway

July, 2021 by syd.kernica

the main trailhead or trails are not handicapped/disabled accessible. this limited mapped area is mostly adjacent to the roadway, only a small section and rarely used. tons of high speed traffic on this roadway. also the sidewalk is only on one side of the road...so you have to go back/forth on the same side. not recommended. // the actual trailhead is loaded with mountain bikers most of the time. //. these trailheads really need to do a better job of grooming some of the paths

Sonoqui Wash Trail

Very Sunny, quiet

June, 2021 by uiblecrowson

We connected this with the parallel Queen Creek Wash. Trail just north to make a nice ~14 mile loop, parking at the Chapman Horse Arena. This was flat and very do-able, especially compared to other trails in the NW Valley where we live and a stark contrast to the canal trails in Phoenix that have broken glass, trash and are dotted with belongings of transient/homeless. Not busy at all and borders agricultural/equestrian real estate. Could use signage on whether to use cross-overs or continue on trail (straight).

This loop is accomplishable BUT with current construction for major shopping complex at Ellsworth and Riggs traveling N/S, it is not advisable. Bike lane is non-existent in places and no sidewalk in others so no kids on that part! Traveling down Power Road (at the other end, connecting with QC, it is a beautiful sidewalk AND bike lanes. Queen Creek is working hard to be welcoming AND improving the quality of life for their residents. Sure will look forward to returning when construction is finished and path is potentially extended!
NOTE: Either take Maricopa Trail (not paved!) from Parking Lot at the West end or go across Riggs to where the actually paved trail is to avoid the gravel and dirt.

Queen Creek Wash Trail

Beautiful and Shady

June, 2021 by uiblecrowson

We connected this with the parallel Sono. Trail jut south to make a nice ~14 mile loop, parking at the Chapman Horse Arena. This was DELIGHTFUL, especially compared to other trails in the NW Valley where we live and a stark contrast to the canal trails in Phoenix that have broken glass, trash and are dotted with belongings of transient/homeless. Busy early on a Saturday morning but people were friendly! Primarily residential and foresee that Queen Creek may well extend this as the population continues to explode. VERY NICE and kudos to the city for this amazing amenity!

New River Trail

Decent Paved Trail

June, 2021 by pete2288

Paved trail that parallels the 101 freeway. There is a park with bathrooms and one porta-potty along the trail. Was not too crowded when I rode it. I would ride it again

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

Ryan 66

May, 2021 by loraleecampbell

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. ¿
