I've only lived in Phoenix a few months now but after several outings I can confidently review this trail. Compared to the Arizona Canal Path, which roughly parallels the Grand Canal (farther north), the Grand Canal is terrible. At first I was going to say that it had been neglected by the city. After my ride today, I'd say more accurately that the city has essentially abandoned it, at least for most of its length. Basically, this path has become a corridor for the homeless. There is glass everywhere, as well as trash. The pavement, for much of its length is in really poor condition.
On the plus side, the canal does get you away from traffic. Well, sort of. With the exception of crossings at major highways such as the 202 and Hwy 51, there are no tunnels under or bridges over major roadways. Trying to cross 7th Ave, 7th St and others is impossible during the week without having to detour to crosswalks. On Sundays, I might consider changing my review to 3 stars because you can usually cross the road.
The Arizona Canal path (mentioned above) has tunnels at all the major roadways, much better pavement, less trash, less glass and goes through more areas with services such as restaurants and convenience stores. Don't bother with the Grand Canal until Phoenix decides to spend some money to upgrade.
Had already done S part of path, so started at Elliot and rode N to Broadway and back.
Parked at elementary school at Elliott & Greenfield, rode wide sidewalk E to path. Nice asphalt path, fair amount of walkers/joggers/cyclists on weekend, older asphalt Southern to Broadway, then gravel so turned around.
Nice and scenic, easy road crossings, goes under the 60, will ride this path again.
The trail is great to cruise, but I really wish it had loose terrain to practice MTB tecniques and skills. Although concrete is good, but getting dirty on the dirt is even better.
I ride my bike multiple times per week on this trail. I use both Skunk Creek Trail and New River Trail. They connect and both are excellent trails! The trail is asphalt and concrete. There is a lot of vegetation and wildlife to see. I just wish it would go further west so I could ride to the trail and not have to drive there
This is a nice fully paved trail that runs parallel to the AZ 51 Fwy. There are a lot of places to pick up this trail, but I recommend parking right off of 40th St and union hills and starting at the bridge right there.
There is a huge parking lot at the batting cages on that intersection and a small sidewalk that takes you straight to the bridge.
From there you can either head north towards the 101 and connect to the w211s trail or head south towards Paradise valley Mall.
I took the trail as far south as it goes and ended up at the golf course on Cactus and Paradise village parkway.
There are some fun but also exhausting bridges that you have to cross on your way there and those are the highlight of the trip.
I'll¿ ride this again next time I want to go to PV Mall.
Some people may not like this trail and that's okay. This trail had its share of transients, litter and grafitti, but it's not without its charm.
The cave Creek wash trail runs from Union hills just between 7th avenue and central and runs till it intersects with the AZ canal trail around 32nd and Dunlap.
On this ride you will experience lots of different sights. The trail cuts through a few neighborhoods at first and give you glimpses into various people's yards, but once you get closer to 19th ave it changes shape and then you're riding past golf courses, parks, businesses and even a theme park.
Overall I would recommend this trail to everyone. This trail is Phoenix in a nutshell.
This trail, as noted, is part of what is called "The Loop" that is being developed by Tucson. It will eventually be 131 miles. They even have "The Loop" jerseys, arm warmers and leg warmers for sale! I stuck to the Julian Wash Greenway, but could have easily caught connecting parts of the trail. A woman who rode with me for a bit had already been riding 30 miles on the trails. I started riding at Thomas Jay regional park and went west. It goes about 9 miles west. The first parts are fairly scenic, passing 2 or 3 more parks, but then it gets a bit urban - having to cross several major intersections. However - the trail is very well marked, and the intersections are at traffic lights, so the crossings are safe. I then came back and went about 2.5 miles east. This again, was a bit scenic but not much. The pavement is awesome, it is nice and wide, with lots of friendly cyclists on the trail. Thanks to Tucson for doing this!!!
Brought our bikes up from Flagstaff to ride this pleasant back woods path into the Grand Canyon. Free parking next to the IMAX theater at the trailhead. Nice meandering ride far from all the cars and people. Hardly any other bike traffic too on this Wednesday afternoon. As the previous reviewer states, once at the Canyon you can't ride next to the rim in the most congested areas; but even then, lock your bike and walk 20 feet to see one of the seven natural wonders of the world! The trip to the Canyon is an overall 500ft rise which makes the trip back very easy - lots of coasting. Avoid the entrance fee and the lines for shuttle buses. This is the way to go. Enjoy!
The South end of this path seems to be closed. We tried to ride it this morning (3/15/17) and could not access it from the south. It's gated and locked.
We rode this trail in March of 2017. This was all in part with the Iron King Trail. This trail is a simple short ride that has moderate hills and offers spectacular scenery throughout. The dells were my favorite. There is also a side trail near the West Trailhead that will take you to the opposite side of the lake, The view there is just as spectacular. The trail is in great condition and nominal traffic. A hidden gem in Arizona.
We rode this trail in March of 2017 including the connecting Peavine trail. In the past. We have traveled across the country and rode some grand trails. The Iron King Trail is short but grand and offers scenery that is gorgeous. Many stops to take photos and just take in the beauty this trail has to offer. We rode out from the Trailhead on Glassford Hill Road. It has a dirt parking area. Going from the south on Glassford Hill Road. The trail is between Spouse Dr. and Santa Fe Loop Road. The trail will take you through a underpass that you will need to walk your bike through as the sand is very deep or you can cross Glassford Hill Road at the light. Either will put you on a large sidewalk that goes through a residential area before entering the trail. The trail is a gradual up hill climb for most of the way from the Glassford Hill Road Trailhead to the Prescott Peavine junction. The trail parallels open fields that cause a bit of a windy condition but only for a mile. The trail connects with the Prescott Peavine Trail and I encourage one to take that trail as the scenery only gets better. Short trail packed with a ton of photo moments and fantastic scenery. There are a couple of single track trails that are legal to go on and we hiked them. There is also plenty of signage of private property too. Over all between all the trails we did 20 miles. Well worth the time.
The path east from Pima Road is closed on both sides of the canal.
