The Indian Bend Wash Path follows the banks of Indian Bend Wash between Scottsdale and Tempe. Along the way, the paved path connects a number of public parks, schools and businesses.
There are two discrete sections: The northern segment runs from Venturoso Park through Phoenix Indian Bend Wash Park down to Stonecreek Golf Club.
The southern segment is longer - over 7.5 miles. A highlight of the route is Scottsdale's Eldorado Park, which is located about mid-trail. The 60-acre park offers a swimming pool, fishing lake, athletic facilities, skate park, playgrounds and picnic areas. Farther north, the lake in Chaparral Park offers a popular place to fish and walk around.
The path is also an important link in the local trail network as it connects to the Rio Salado Pathway at its southern end (which follows both of Tempe Town Lake's shores) and both the Arizona Canal Path (which heads west to Phoenix) and Central Arizona Project to Arizona Canal Trail at its northern end.
Parking is available about mid-trail at Eldorado Park (2311 N. Miller Rd., Scottsdale) and farther north at Chaparral Park (5401 N. Hayden Rd., Scottsdale).
