The paved Crosscut Canal Path links Tempe and Scottsdale via a route alongside the Crosscut Canal, which dates to 1912. The trail follows the entire length of the canal thanks to a southern extension in Tempe that opened in 2011.
In the south, the trail winds through Papago Park, a wonder with stunning desert scenery, flora and fauna. As the trail heads north into Scottsdale, the surroundings become more residential. From the path's northern terminus, trail users can continue a short distance northeast on the Arizona Canal Path to reach charming downtown Scottsdale.
Ample parking and restrooms for the Crosscut Canal Path are available in Evelyn Hallman Park (1900 N. College Avenue) in Tempe.
