Queen Creek Wash Trail Description

The Queen Creek Wash Trail has a more rural feel than other trails in the Phoenix metropolitan area. Located within the community of Queen Creek, and following the banks of Queen Creek Wash, this trail passes open space, farmland and some smaller residential communities.

At the trail's southeastern end, Desert Mountain Park features several athletic fields, playgrounds and picnic shelters.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking for the Queen Creek Wash Trail is available at Desert Mountain Park (22201 S. Hawes Road) in Queen Creek.

Queen Creek Wash Trail Reviews

This trail is great. It is all asphalt and very smooth with beautiful scenery and a view of the mountains. It is actually almost exactly five miles long not the 2.3 that is listed. It also has bypasses under most road crossings. The only negative is that it gets a lot of use on the weekends.

Here from out of town looking for a nice path away from traffic, GPS directed us to a residential neighborhood. We entered the path on opposite end (of title suggestion), which was unmarked and very hard/frustrating to find. Once we made our way to the fully paved path we saw lots of wildlife (rabbits, roadrunners & other birds). A few cool underpasses and smooth, thorn - free ride. We learned NOT to ride over grass or through unmarked trail after 3 (of 4) flat tires the previous day.

On top of being a fun trail to Trikke Original poly wheel it is smooth on well maintain and not to many steep hills but there is some small ones that will help you work on your trikke climbing skills. On the a trikke it took me 1 hour to complete the whole trail starting at desert mountain park to Power Rd and back. I love it and going to do this trail 4 times a week

I love this trail! It is the closest to my house, which makes it convienent for me to use on a regular basis. They recently just completed a section of the trail that now provides a connection to the Desert Mountain Park without having to cross the busy roads. This allows you to park there and use the facilities before you hit the trail. There is also a dog pick-up bag station as you leave the park, so you can get prepared to clean up after your dog on the trail. A group of my dog-loving friends met and walked this trail together with our dogs just this past Sunday. It was a relaxing walk and the dogs saw lots of bunnies along the way to get excited about. While we were on the trail the Maricopa Sherriff even came through patroling the trail! I highly recommend this trail!
