Sept 2018: Nice ride, quite flat except for underpasses. It was unexpectedly busy for a Sunday morning, but the first day the ride was great. Loved the scenery, the long straight sections and even the temperature of mid 80s was a relief for us on our two CatTrikes . We parked at Central Ave and rode north and then turned around and headed south, then back to the parking area. A nice ride to work the kinks out after sitting on a tour bus for a week. On the second day, we headed south first just to be different. We didn't make it back to Central before the goat head got me on the left front tire. At home, I normally ride some fairly rough surfaces but I don't usually worry about flat tires. I keep good rubber on all three tires and "thornproof" innertubes on my Cattrikes. Big Mistake! Goat heads are very plentiful and super tough. Ayway, after three days and three flats, we gave up. I think I will investigate airless tires. That would make the riding in that area much more enjoyable. A bit of research on the internet convinced me that the goat head problem will be a continuing problem far into the future. Perhaps a bit of warning to folks coming in from other parts of the country would be in order.
This is more of a sidewalk by a super busy street. You would have to make quite a few stops in your run/walk or ride as there are many street crossings. Nothing scenic about this trail south of I40 unless you like watching cars race.
This trail is very poorly maintained. Bushes are over grown, puddles create mud which covers the hard surface in dirt, and and most recently horses have been using the trail and haven't been cleaned up after. I had to ride portions of this trail with my shirt over my nose. I've ridden twice and gotten thorns in my tires both times. This trail probably works for hiking or running but it's a bust for biking because of the maintenance issues.
This is an excellent bike trail, flat, empty, and scenic. I followed "bike chic's" excellent directions. I rode south from where I parked for a total of 15 miles round trip.

I ride on this outstanding trail every week, and am always impressed with the beautiful scenery in the middle of the city. I have seen so much wildlife (sandhill cranes, coyotes, bald eagles, night herons, and more). You can connect to several other trails and go far and wide. Highly recommended!
Water was flowing today in the channel. There are 2 spots where you can't tell which way the real trail goes, but as someone told me, just follow the water. It was only about 1.5 miles long, not many cars to bother with, nice scenery. Crossing the big street was a pain, can't wait for the tunnel to be built.
The best access is Gomez Rd--Valley Maple St off Upper Valley Rd just north of Country Club road.
Lovely ride and fairly easy. Watch out for runners and other cyclists. It can get pretty busy.
Trail connects to Tramway trail. Surface has expansion cracks up to 3 inches wide. All up hill from Morris St.

We rode this trail in February on our way to Mesa Az from MN. This trail us an easy stop of off I40. We parked at the BioPark-Zoo and entered the trail next to the train depot. We headed south the trail was easy to follow though to loop back you ride along the road and cross one street. There are benches often and the trail is great. We continued north from past where we started -that part of the trail offered less shade and was more heavily travelled. On the way home we rode this trail again and it was quite busy on a Saturday. Worth the stop.
